Cylert is the brand name for Pemoline, a stimulant first synthesized in 1913 and used to treat ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and narcolepsy. Pemoline has been pulled from the U.S. market because of reports connecting its use in children to increased risk of liver failure. After the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning not to prescribe Pemoline for ADHD, the manufacturer and patent owner (Abbott Laboratories) stopped making Cylert.
Pemoline was first approved by the FDA in 1975. Since that date, more than 20 liver failures have been linked to the drug. Pemoline is believed to cause hepatoxicity, a chemically induced form of liver damage.
