Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder


ADHD stands out as one of the most prevalent cognitive disabilities affecting both children and adults, with over 3 million cases receiving treatment annually, marking a 42% increase over the past decade.Stimulant compounds such as methylphenidate and amphetamine are the primary treatments prescribed for ADHD. However, these psycho stimulants come with a range of side effects. At Avekshan, we are dedicated to providing alternatives to these classic stimulant medications, benefiting patients, families, and physicians alike.


Stimulant Medication

The medications currently available for treating ADHD come with several potential side effects. These can include insomnia, appetite suppression, mood fluctuations, and changes in blood pressure. Psycho stimulants such as methylphenidate and amphetamine, the predominant ADHD treatment option, pose additional risks of abuse, misuse, and addiction.


Medication Adherence

It is estimated that nearly 50% of ADHD patients prescribed stimulant medications do not adhere to the prescription regimen.


Untreated ADHD

Not treating ADHD properly can have far-reaching consequences across academic, social, emotional, and personal domains. Untreated ADHD is associated with an elevated risk of nicotine and other substance use disorders and may also increase the likelihood of developing conduct disorders, including engagement in criminal behaviors.

AVK 001

Avekshan is developing AVK 001, a Fixed Dose Combination (FDC) of methylphenidate [MPH]hydrochloride and naltrexone [NTX] hydrochloride for the treatment of ADHD.

MPH (the same active ingredient in Ritalin®, Concerta® among others) is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant indicated as an integral part of a total treatment program (typically including other psychological, educational, and social remedial measures) for a stabilizing effect in children and adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder(ADHD).
