But in the past was frequently prescribed "off label" to address troublesome ADHD traits (especially hyperactivity and behavior issues), usually in conjunction with another ADHD med.
Last fall, the FDA approved Shire Company's "Intunive" (guanafacine) for kids aged 6-17. It's not a stimulant, therefore, no Schedule II hassles.
I'm sure that Shire is seeking FDA approval for its use with adults with ADHD. Even if that hasn't happened yet, I a number of doctors will still prescribe it to their adult patients... after all, Adderall wasn't approved for adults until years after it had become a staple med prescribed for adult patients with ADHD.
