Pharmaceutical giant Shire, the makers of Adderall, is seeking U.S. approval of a longer lasting adult ADHD drug, SPD465. SPD465 contains the same amphetamine compound found in Adderall XR but the new formula is said to control ADHD symptoms for up to 16 hours.

If approved, SPD465 will be the first longest acting stimulant medication for adults with ADHD.
