CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY SECTION.


12 CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY. 12.1 Mechanism of Action. The mechanism of action of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets is unknown. 12.3 Pharmacokinetics. The pharmacokinetics of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets have been characterized in healthy non-pregnant adult women. Pharmacokinetic results for doxylamine and pyridoxine, including its vitamin B6 metabolites, pyridoxal, pyridoxal 5-phosphate, pyridoxamine and pyridoxamine 5-phosphate, are summarized in Tables to 5. Absorption. single-dose (two tablets) and multiple-dose (four tablets daily), open-label study was conducted to assess the safety and pharmacokinetic profile of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets administered in healthy non-pregnant adult women. Single-doses (two tablets at bedtime) were administered on Days and 2. Multiple-doses (one tablet in the morning, one tablet in the afternoon and two tablets at bedtime) were administered on Days 3-18. Blood samples for pharmacokinetic analysis were collected pre-and post-dose on Days and 18 as well as pre-dose prior to bedtime dose only (trough) on Days 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, and 18. Doxylamine and pyridoxine are absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, mainly in the jejunum. The Cmax of doxylamine and pyridoxine are achieved within 7.5 and 5.5 hours, respectively (see Table 2).

The time to reach the maximum concentration is not affected by multiple doses. The mean accumulation index is more than 1.0 suggesting that doxylamine accumulates following multiple dosing (see Table 3). Although no accumulation was observed for pyridoxine, the mean accumulation index for each metabolite (pyridoxal, pyridoxal 5-phosphate, and pyridoxamine 5-phosphate) is more than 1.0 following multiple-dose administration of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets. The time to reach the maximum concentration is not affected by multiple doses (see Table 2).Table 3: Pharmacokinetics of Doxylamine and Pyridoxine Following Single Dose and Multiple Dose Administration of Doxylamine Succinate and Pyridoxine Hydrochloride Delayed-Release Tablets to Healthy Non-Pregnant Adult WomenAUC0-last (ngoh/mL)AUC0-inf (ngoh/mL)Cmax (ng/mL)Tmax (h)T1/2el (h)Doxylamine Mean +- SDN 18Single911.4 +- 205.61280.9 +- 369.383.3 +- 20.67.2 +- 1.910.1 +- 2.1Multiple3661.3 +- 1279.23721.5 +- 1318.5168.6 +- 38.57.8 +- 1.611.9 +- 3.3Pyridoxine Mean +- SD = 18Single39.3 +- 16.543.4 +- 16.532.6 +- 15.05.7 +- 1.50.5 +- 0.2Multiple59.3 +- 33.964.5 +- 36.446.1 +- 28.35.6 +- 1.30.5 +- 0.1. Food Effect. The administration of food delays the absorption of both doxylamine and pyridoxine. This delay is associated with lower peak concentration of doxylamine, but the extent of absorption is not affected (see Table 4). The effect of food on the peak concentration and the extent of absorption of the pyridoxine component is more complex because the pyridoxal, pyridoxamine, pyridoxal 5-phosphate and pyridoxamine 5-phosphate metabolites also contribute to the biological activity. Food significantly reduces the bioavailability of pyridoxine, lowering its Cmax and AUC by approximately 50% compared to fasting conditions. Similarly, food significantly reduces pyridoxal AUC and reduces its Cmax by 50% compared to fasting conditions. In contrast, food slightly increases pyridoxal 5-phosphate Cmax and extent of absorption. As for pyridoxamine and pyridoxamine 5-phosphate, the rate and extent of absorption seem to decrease under fed conditions.

Pyridoxine is highly protein bound, primarily to albumin. Its main active metabolite, pyridoxal 5-phosphate (PLP) accounts for at least 60% of circulating vitamin B6 concentrations. Metabolism. Doxylamine is biotransformed in the liver by N-dealkylation to its principle metabolites N-desmethyl-doxylamine and N, N-didesmethyldoxylamine. Pyridoxine is prodrug primarily metabolized in the liver. Excretion. The principle metabolites of doxylamine, N-desmethyl-doxylamine and N, N-didesmethyldoxylamine, are excreted by the kidney. The terminal elimination half-life of doxylamine and pyridoxine are 12.5 hours and 0.5 hours, respectively (see Table 5).

CLINICAL STUDIES SECTION.


14 CLINICAL STUDIES. double-blind, randomized, multi-center, placebo-controlled study was conducted to support the safety and efficacy of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets in the treatment of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy. Adult women 18 years of age or older and to 14 weeks gestation (median weeks of gestation) with nausea and vomiting of pregnancy were randomized to 14 days of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets or placebo. Two tablets of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride were administered at bedtime on Day 1. If symptoms of nausea and vomiting persisted into the afternoon hours of Day 2, the woman was directed to take her usual dose of two tablets at bedtime that night and, beginning on Day 3, to take one tablet in the morning and two tablets at bedtime. Based upon assessment of remaining symptoms at her clinic visit on Day (+- day), the woman may have been directed to take an additional tablet mid-afternoon. maximum of four tablets (one in the morning, one in the mid-afternoon and two at bedtime) were taken daily. Over the treatment period, 19% of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets-treated patients remained on tablets daily, 21% received tablets daily, and 60% received tablets daily. The primary efficacy endpoint was the change from baseline at Day 15 in the Pregnancy Unique-Quantification of Emesis (PUQE) score. The PUQE score incorporates the number of daily vomiting episodes, number of daily heaves, and length of daily nausea in hours, for an overall score of symptoms rated from (no symptoms) to 15 (most severe). At baseline, the mean PUQE score was 9.0 in the doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets arm and 8.8 in the placebo arm. There was 0.7 (95% confidence interval 0.2 to 1.2 with p-value 0.006) mean decrease (improvement in nausea and vomiting symptoms) from baseline in PUQE score at Day 15 with doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets compared to placebo (see Table 6).

DRUG INTERACTIONS SECTION.


7 DRUG INTERACTIONS. oSevere drowsiness can occur when used in combination with alcohol or other sedating medications. (7) oSevere drowsiness can occur when used in combination with alcohol or other sedating medications. (7) 7.1 Drug Interactions Use of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets is contraindicated in women who are taking monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), which prolong and intensify the anticholinergic (drying) effects of antihistamines. Concurrent use of alcohol and other CNS depressants (such as hypnotic sedatives and tranquilizers) with doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets is not recommended. 7.2 Drug-Food Interactions A food-effect study demonstrated that the delay in the onset of action of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets may be further delayed, and reduction in absorption may occur when tablets are taken with food [see Dosage and Administration (2), Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Therefore, doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets should be taken on an empty stomach with glass of water [see Dosage and Administration (2)]. 7.3 False Positive Urine Tests for Methadone, Opiates and PCP False positive drug screens for methadone, opiates, and PCP can occur with doxylamine succinate/pyridoxine hydrochloride use. Confirmatory tests, such as Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS), should be used to confirm the identity of the substance in the event of positive immunoassay result.

INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS SECTION.


17 PATIENT COUNSELING INFORMATION. See FDA-approved patient labeling (Patient Information) Somnolence and Severe Drowsiness: Inform women to avoid engaging in activities requiring complete mental alertness, such as driving or operating heavy machinery, while using doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets until cleared to do so. Inform women of the importance of not taking doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets with alcohol or sedating medications, including other antihistamines (present in some cough and cold medications), opiates and sleep aids because somnolence could worsen leading to falls or other accidents. Interference with Urine Drug Screening: Inform women that use of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets may result in false positive urine drug screening for methadone, opiates and PCP.

LACTATION SECTION.


8.2 Lactation Women should not breastfeed while using doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets. The molecular weight of doxylamine succinate is low enough that passage into breast milk can be expected. Exctextent, irritability and sedation have been reported in nursing infants presumably exposed to doxylamine succinate through breast milk. Infants with apnea or other respiratory syndromes may be particularly vulnerable to the sedative effects of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride resulting in worsening of their apnea or respiratory conditions. Pyridoxine hydrochloride is excreted into breast milk. There have been no reports of adverse events in infants presumably exposed to pyridoxine hydrochloride through breast milk.

The time to reach the maximum concentration is not affected by multiple doses (see Table 2).Table 3: Pharmacokinetics of Doxylamine and Pyridoxine Following Single Dose and Multiple Dose Administration of Doxylamine Succinate and Pyridoxine Hydrochloride Delayed-Release Tablets to Healthy Non-Pregnant Adult WomenAUC0-last (ngoh/mL)AUC0-inf (ngoh/mL)Cmax (ng/mL)Tmax (h)T1/2el (h)Doxylamine Mean +- SDN 18Single911.4 +- 205.61280.9 +- 369.383.3 +- 20.67.2 +- 1.910.1 +- 2.1Multiple3661.3 +- 1279.23721.5 +- 1318.5168.6 +- 38.57.8 +- 1.611.9 +- 3.3Pyridoxine Mean +- SD = 18Single39.3 +- 16.543.4 +- 16.532.6 +- 15.05.7 +- 1.50.5 +- 0.2Multiple59.3 +- 33.964.5 +- 36.446.1 +- 28.35.6 +- 1.30.5 +- 0.1. Food Effect. The administration of food delays the absorption of both doxylamine and pyridoxine. This delay is associated with lower peak concentration of doxylamine, but the extent of absorption is not affected (see Table 4). The effect of food on the peak concentration and the extent of absorption of the pyridoxine component is more complex because the pyridoxal, pyridoxamine, pyridoxal 5-phosphate and pyridoxamine 5-phosphate metabolites also contribute to the biological activity. Food significantly reduces the bioavailability of pyridoxine, lowering its Cmax and AUC by approximately 50% compared to fasting conditions. Similarly, food significantly reduces pyridoxal AUC and reduces its Cmax by 50% compared to fasting conditions. In contrast, food slightly increases pyridoxal 5-phosphate Cmax and extent of absorption. As for pyridoxamine and pyridoxamine 5-phosphate, the rate and extent of absorption seem to decrease under fed conditions.

Pyridoxine is highly protein bound, primarily to albumin. Its main active metabolite, pyridoxal 5-phosphate (PLP) accounts for at least 60% of circulating vitamin B6 concentrations. Metabolism. Doxylamine is biotransformed in the liver by N-dealkylation to its principle metabolites N-desmethyl-doxylamine and N, N-didesmethyldoxylamine. Pyridoxine is prodrug primarily metabolized in the liver. Excretion. The principle metabolites of doxylamine, N-desmethyl-doxylamine and N, N-didesmethyldoxylamine, are excreted by the kidney. The terminal elimination half-life of doxylamine and pyridoxine are 12.5 hours and 0.5 hours, respectively (see Table 5).

SPL UNCLASSIFIED SECTION.


2.1 Dosage Information Initially, take two doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets orally at bedtime (Day 1). If this dose adequately controls symptoms the next day, continue taking two tablets daily at bedtime. However, if symptoms persist into the afternoon of Day 2, take the usual dose of two tablets at bedtime that night then take three tablets starting on Day (one tablet in the morning and two tablets at bedtime). If these three tablets adequately control symptoms on Day 4, continue taking three tablets daily. Otherwise take four tablets starting on Day (one tablet in the morning, one tablet mid-afternoon and two tablets at bedtime). The maximum recommended dose is four tablets (one in the morning, one in the mid-afternoon and two at bedtime) daily. Take on an empty stomach with glass of water [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Swallow tablets whole. Do not crush, chew, or split doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets. Take as daily prescription and not on an as needed basis. Reassess the woman for continued need for doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets as her pregnancy progresses.

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS SECTION.


8 USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS. Doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets are intended for use in pregnant women. . 8.1 Pregnancy. Risk Summary. Doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets are intended for the treatment of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy in women who do not respond to conservative management. Maternal risks are discussed throughout the labeling. No increased risk for congenital malformations has been reported in epidemiologic studies in pregnant women.In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risks for major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies are 2-4% and 15-20%, respectively.. Data. Human Data The combination of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride has been the subject of many epidemiological studies (cohort, case control and meta-analyses) designed to detect possible teratogenicity. meta-analysis of 16 cohort and 11 case-control studies published between 1963 and 1991 reported no increased risk for malformations from first trimester exposures to doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride, with or without dicyclomine hydrochloride. second meta-analysis of 12 cohort and case-control studies published between 1963 and 1985 reported no statistically significant relationships between fetal abnormalities and the first trimester use of the combination doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride with or without dicyclomine hydrochloride.. 8.2 Lactation Women should not breastfeed while using doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets. The molecular weight of doxylamine succinate is low enough that passage into breast milk can be expected. Exctextent, irritability and sedation have been reported in nursing infants presumably exposed to doxylamine succinate through breast milk. Infants with apnea or other respiratory syndromes may be particularly vulnerable to the sedative effects of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride resulting in worsening of their apnea or respiratory conditions. Pyridoxine hydrochloride is excreted into breast milk. There have been no reports of adverse events in infants presumably exposed to pyridoxine hydrochloride through breast milk. 8.4 Pediatric Use. The safety and effectiveness of doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride delayed-release tablets in children under 18 years of age have not been established. Fatalities have been reported from doxylamine overdose in children. The overdose cases have been characterized by coma, grand mal seizures and cardiorespiratory arrest. Children appear to be at high risk for cardiorespiratory arrest. toxic dose for children of more than 1.8 mg/kg has been reported. 3 year old child died 18 hours after ingesting 1,000 mg doxylamine succinate. However, there is no correlation between the amount of doxylamine ingested, the doxylamine plasma level and clinical symptomatology.
