The recent FDA approval of Neos Therapeutics' Adzenys, an orally disintegrating drug developed to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), will provide patients who have problems swallowing pills with easy-to-administer drug options, according to an analyst with research and consulting firm GlobalData.

Adzenys, which is intended for use in patients aged six years or older, uses the company's proprietary Rapidly Disintegrating Ionic Masking (RDIM) technology.

Dr Rachel Markwick, GlobalData's Analyst covering Neurology and Ophthalmology, states that RDIM provides an extended release of amphetamine in the form of an orally disintegrating tablet, and includes taste-masking properties. As such, unmet needs within the ADHD market will be addressed for those who dislike swallowing tablets, or find it difficult, including both children and adults.

Dr Markwick comments: "The technology used in Adzenys, which Neos plans to launch in Q2 of 2016 and make available in six dosage strengths, is also being utilized for another of the company's late-stage ADHD candidate drugs, Cotempla XR-ODT (methylphenidate), which is likely to be launched in early 2018.

"GlobalData believes that while Adzenys and Cotempla will be helpful additions to the ADHD treatment space, Adzenys may initially encounter some skepticism, as Shire's Vyvanse can already be sprinkled onto food."

Please there is a cure for dementia and no one knows. This is my husband’s story... My husband was a retired force man, he had partial stroke 5 years ago, and then i was still working. His condition got worse and he was hospitalized. After some time of treatment he began to behave abnormal, like someone who has lost memory of event and occurrence. i shared tears the very day i walked to him in the hospital and he could not even recognize me. This is am man that is very playful and highly romantic. Each day i hold him to myself and share tears the more. He was not able to do anything just look at me like a bull dog and do so many abnormal things. Later on doctor brought a recent report and he was diagnosed of dementia this doctor says have no cure that he would die a brainless man. Oh my God i fainted when i heard this. I raised my voice and cry to God to help me from this. So i began to hope and trust God to do miracle. My pastor was a great pillar of encouragement to me. i did all i can to get a cure for him, but none worked out, i spent thousands of USD trying to get a cure for him. But behold a friends doctor came visiting and said to me let’s look if herbal remedy can help him get any better so he gave me your website which is www. Drisimhenmhenherbalhome.com there i saw how people testified of the good works of herbs in their life, so i decided to contact the doctor because his contact details was on his website.. The first time i emailed him, i got no reply from him, so i decided to call him on the phone. I called him, and told him what he could do was to laugh and said to me that anything the enemy have planned against my husband must fail, he said to me that he have cured Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease and this is exactly what my husband is suffering from. After all, he prepared herbs and sent to me, i have to force my husband to take it because before then he was not taking anything from me to eat anymore. but behold sir it was just like a magic gradually my husband begin to get better, better and today sir i am proud to say my husband is totally cured, He you cured my husband of this deadly dementia disease and now i keep my promise i made to him before the cure that i will let the entire world know about his herbs if my husband is cured. Sir, now i am overwhelmed. God bless you sir. My husband has the plans to travel to see the doctor facially and say a physical thanks to him in his country, and i will accompany him down to his home in his country to also show my gratitude him.
