What is Xelstrym?
Xelstrym is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Noven Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Xelstrym is used for the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults and pediatric patients 6 years of age and older. CNS stimulants, including Xelstrym, and methylphenidate, have a high potential for abuse and dependence.
What doses of Xelstrym are available?
Xelstrym is available as a transdermal system, in the following doses: 4.5 mg/9 hours, 9 mg/9 hours, 13.5 mg/9 hours, or 18 mg/9 hours.
Apply one transdermal patch 2 hours before an effect is needed and remove it within 9 hours. Apply to the hip, upper arm, chest, upper back, or flank. Change the application site when applying a new transdermal system.
Avoid exposing the application site to direct external heat sources, such as hair dryers, heating pads or electric blankets, saunas, hot tubs, and heated water beds. Heat can cause too much medicine to pass into your body causing serious side effects.
Please read the full prescribing information and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
