FDA Approves Onyda XR Non-Stimulant Liquid Treatment for ADHD

The FDA has approved Onyda XR (clonidine hydrochloride), a once-a-day extended-release oral suspension with nighttime dosing, for the treatment of ADHD as a monotherapy or as an adjunctive therapy to approved central nervous system (CNS) stimulant medications in pediatric patients six years and older.

  • The FDA approval of Onyda XR is based on adequate and well-controlled studies of clonidine hydrochloride extended-release tablets.
  • Onyda XR is the first non-stimulant ADHD medication in Tris’ portfolio, the first-and-only liquid non-stimulant ADHD medication approved in the United States and the only approved non-stimulant ADHD medication with nighttime dosing.
  • Tris Pharma harnessed the flexibility of its proprietary LiquiXR® technology to develop Onyda XR, a
    liquid non-stimulant medication with a smooth, extended-release profile that physicians can use to treat ADHD patients either alone or in combination with stimulant therapy.
