The A03 study was designed to evaluate the "likeability" of lisdexamfetamine dimesylate compared to placebo and two active controls (d-amphetamine sulfate 40 mg, a Schedule II stimulant, and diethylpropion HCl 200 mg, a Schedule IV stimulant) in thirty-six volunteers with histories of stimulant abuse.
The liking effects of lisdexamfetamine dimesylate 150 mg were not statistically significantly different from either d-amphetamine sulfate 40 mg or diethylpropion HCl 200 mg, although the amphetamine content in lisdexamfetamine dimesylate 150 mg is 50 percent more than the amphetamine content of 40 mg of d-amphetamine sulfate on a molar weight basis.
