NATL IV. General Information: •







Because of the potential risk for misuse, abuse, and overdose, the fentanyl sublingual and transmucosal products listed below are only available through restricted distribution programs. Under the transmucosal immediate release fentanyl risk evaluation and mitigation strategy (TIRF REMS) program, only prescribers, pharmacies, and patients registered with TIRF REMS are able to prescribe, dispense, and receive these products. Additional information is available at: www.tirfremsaccess.com/TirfUISplashWeb/index.html or by calling 1-866-822-1483. These products are not interchangeable and must not be used in opioid non-tolerant patients because life-threatening hypoventilation could occur at any dose in patients not taking chronic opiates. Substantial differences exist in the pharmacokinetic profiles of these drugs that result in clinically important differences in the extent of absorption of fentanyl. As a result of these differences, the substitution of these products may result in fatal overdose. Patients considered opioid tolerant are those who are taking around the clock medicine consisting of at least 60 mg morphine/day, at least 25mcg transdermal fentanyl/hour, at least 30 mg of oxycodone daily, at least 8 mg oral hydromorphone daily, or an equianalgesic dose of another opioid for a week or longer. Fentanyl absorption with different formulations of transmucosal delivery systems can be substantially different. When Abstral is prescribed, patients should not be converted on a mcg per mcg basis from any other oral transmucocal fentanyl product. Patients beginning treatment with Abstral must begin with titration from 100 mcg dose. Patients switching from Actiq to Fentora should be initiated as shown: Actiq dose (mcg) 200 400 600 800 1200 1600

Recommended Dosing Regimen and Authorization Limit: Drug Actiq

Fentora

Abstral

Lazanda

Dosing Regimen Initiate dosing with 200 mcg PO and if breakthrough episode is not relieved in 30 minutes, patients may take only 1 additional dose using the same strength and must wait at least 4 hours before taking another dose. Individually titrate to a dose that provides adequate analgesia using single dosage unit per breakthrough cancer pain episode and minimizes side effects. Initial prescription recommendation for maximum of 6 units; No more than 4 doses per day; separate by at least 4 hours. Initiate dosing with 100 mcg PO and if breakthrough episode is not relieved in 30 minutes, patients may take only 1 additional dose using the same strength and must wait at least 4 hours before taking another dose.

Begin titration of all patients with an initial dose of Abstral of 100 mcg SL. Due to differences in the pharmacokinetic properties and individual variability, even patients switching from other fentanyl containing products to Abstral must start with the 100 mcg dose. Abstral is not equivalent on a mcg per mcg basis with all other fentanyl products, therefore, do not switch patients on a mcg per mcg basis from any other fentanyl product. The safety and efficacy of doses higher than 800 mcg have not been evaluated. Initial dose of Lazanda for all patients is 100 mcg. Individually titrate to an effective dose, from 100 mcg to 200 mcg to 400 mcg, and up to a maximum of 800 mcg, that provides adequate analgesia with tolerable side effects.
