Kapvay approved for ADHD
Kapvay is a non-stimulant, centrally acting alpha2-adrenergic receptor agonist. The mechanism of action of alpha2 agonists in ADHD is unknown, but it is believed to involve the pre-frontal cortex (PFC) of the brain. Studies suggest that the PFC regulates attention and plays a critical role in impulse control, working memory and executive function.
