Serious Cardiovascular Reactions: Sudden death has been reported in association with CNS stimulant treatment at recommended doses in pediatric patients with structural cardiac abnormalities or other serious heart problems. In adults, sudden death, stroke, and myocardial infarction have been reported. Avoid use in patients with known structural cardiac abnormalities, cardiomyopathy, serious heart arrhythmia, coronary artery disease, and other serious heart problems. Further evaluate patients who develop exertional chest pain, unexplained syncope, or arrhythmias during Adzenys XR-ODT treatment.

Blood Pressure and Heart Rate Increases: CNS stimulants can cause an increase in blood pressure (mean increase about 2-4 mm Hg) and heart rate (mean increase about 3-6 bpm). Consider this before prescribing and monitor blood pressure and pulse.

Psychiatric Adverse Reactions: CNS stimulants may cause psychotic or manic symptoms in patients with no prior history, or exacerbate symptoms of behavior disturbance and thought disorder in patients with pre-existing psychosis. Assess for bipolar disorder prior to treatment.

Long-Term Suppression of Growth: Closely monitor weight and height in pediatric patients treated with Adzenys XR-ODT. Treatment may need to be interrupted.

Peripheral Vasculopathy, including Raynaud’s Phenomenon: Signs and symptoms are usually intermittent and mild; very rare sequelae include digital ulceration and/or soft tissue breakdown. Careful observation for digital changes is necessary.

Serotonin Syndrome: Increased risk may occur when amphetamines are co-administered with serotonergic agents (such as MAOIs, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), or triptans), and during overdosage situations. If it occurs, discontinue Adzenys XR-ODT and initiate supportive treatment.

Potential for Overdose Due to Medication Errors: Substitution and dispensing errors with other amphetamine products could occur, leading to possible overdosage. Do not substitute for other amphetamine products on a milligram-per-milligram basis, because of different amphetamine base compositions and differing pharmacokinetic profiles.

Get medical help right away if you have any very serious side effects, such as: shortness of breath, chest/jaw/left arm pain, unusual sweating, fainting, severe headache, fast/pounding/irregular heartbeat, seizures, swelling ankles/feet, extreme tiredness, blurred vision, weakness on one side of the body, slurred speech, confusion.

This medication may increase serotonin and rarely cause a very serious condition called serotonin syndrome/toxicity. The risk increases if you are also taking other drugs that increase serotonin, so tell your doctor or pharmacist of all the drugs you take . Get medical help right away if you develop some of the following symptoms: fast heartbeat, hallucinations, loss of coordination, severe dizziness, severe nausea/vomiting/diarrhea, twitching muscles, unexplained fever, unusual agitation/restlessness.
