Supernus Pharmaceuticals Inc (SUPN) on June 21, 2017 announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved MydayisTM (mixed salts of a single-entity amphetamine product), a once-daily treatment comprised of three different types of drug-releasing beads for patients 13 years and older with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Mydayis is not for use in children 12 years and younger. Shire expects to make Mydayis commercially available in the United States in the third quarter of 2017.

Mydayis was originally developed by Shire Laboratories, the former division of Shire that subsequently became Supernus Pharmaceuticals. Based on the agreement between Supernus and Shire, Shire will pay to Supernus a single digit percentage royalty on net sales of the product.

“We believe Mydayis clinical profile represents a novel treatment for ADHD patients. Having shown efficacy lasting up to 16 hours after taking one capsule, beginning at 2 or 4 hours post-dose, this novel product should prove to be an important option treatment for many patients 13 years and older,” said Jack Khattar, President and CEO of Supernus Pharmaceuticals.
