Other medicines and Cleviprex

Please tell your doctor if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines.

There is no adequate information on the use of Cleviprex in pregnant women. Cleviprex should not be used during pregnancy unless clearly necessary. Your doctor will decide whether or not this treatment is appropriate for you.

It is not known whether Cleviprex is excreted in breast-milk. If you are breast-feeding, the doctor will decide whether Cleviprex should be used.

Driving and using machines

Cleviprex is used to lower your blood pressure, which may make you feel light-headed or dizzy and could affect your ability to drive or use machines.

Hoe gebruikt u dit middel?

Cleviprex is for infusion (drip) into a vein. This is administered by a doctor.

Your treatment with Cleviprex will be supervised by a doctor as Cleviprex is administered in the hospital. The doctor will decide how much Cleviprex you receive and will prepare the medicine.

  • Throughout your treatment, the doctor will check your blood pressure
  • Before the start of infusion the doctor will tell you about the signs of allergic reaction
  • The dose and duration of infusion depends upon the kind of treatment you are undergoing

Dosage

An infusion of Cleviprex should be started at 4 ml/hour (2 mg/hour) and increased as tolerated in doubling amounts (i.e. 4 to 8, 8 to 16, 16 to 32, 32 to 64 ml/hour [2 to 4, 4 to 8, 8 to 16, 16 to

32 mg/hour]) every 90 seconds.

Cleviprex will reduce blood pressure for most patients at doses up to 32 ml/hour (16 mg/hour).

Some patients may require a dose up to 64 ml/hour (32 mg/hour).

If you have more Cleviprex than you should

These doses are carefully checked by the doctor, so an overdose is very unlikely. In the event of taking too much Cleviprex, the infusion will be reduced or stopped.

If you are concerned that you may have been given too much Cleviprex, talk to your doctor or other medical staff immediately.

If you forget to have Cleviprex

Since treatment with Cleviprex is administered and supervised by a doctor, this is very unlikely. If you are concerned that you may have missed a dose, talk to your doctor immediately.

While you are receiving Cleviprex

If you develop severe allergic reactions, like swelling of your face and/or throat or fever tell your doctor immediately.

If you have further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor.

Clevidipine

Healthcare professionals should refer to the Summary of Product Characteristics for full prescribing information.

Cleviprex is indicated for the rapid reduction of blood pressure in the perioperative setting. Safety and efficacy has not been established in children or pregnant women.

Instructions for use

For single use only.

Use strict aseptic technique. Once stopper is punctured, use within 12 hours; discard unused portion in accordance with local requirements.

Cleviprex is a sterile, white opaque emulsion. Visually inspect prior to use. Solutions that are discoloured or contain particulate matter should not be used.

Gently invert vial before use to ensure uniformity of the emulsion.

Cleviprex should be administered via a vented spike and infusion device. Do not dilute.

Lipid filters with a 1.2 micron pore size may be used when administering Cleviprex.

Cleviprex should not be administered in the same line as other medications; however, Cleviprex can be administered with the following:

  • Water for injections
  • Sodium Chloride (0.9%) Injection
  • 5% glucose solution
  • 5% glucose solution in Sodium Chloride (0.9%) Injection
  • 5% glucose solution in Ringers Lactate Injection
  • Lactated Ringers Injection
  • 10% amino acid

Contraindications

Hypersensitivity to soybeans, soya-bean oil refined, soy products, peanut, eggs or egg products or to any of the other excipients. Clevidipine must not be used in patients with defective lipid metabolism (see section 4.3 of SmPC).

Special Warnings and Precautions

The Medicines Company 25 June 2013
Clevidipine (EU Core for NL) Module 1, 1.3.1.1 Product Information (English)
Confidential Page 10

Rapid pharmacologic reductions in blood pressure may produce systemic hypotension and reflex tachycardia. If either occurs, consider decreasing the dose by half or stopping the infusion. Full recovery of BP is achieved in 5-15 minutes (see section 5.1 of SmPC).

Clevidipine should be used with caution in patients who cannot compensate for reduced blood pressure such as those with left bundle-branch block or primary ventricular pacing or severe aortic stenosis (see section 4.4 of SmPC).

Drug-drug interaction: Clevipine is metabolized by esterases. At clinical doses, there is no potential for CYP interaction. Patients receiving oral or IV anti-hypertensive agents while on clevidipine should be observed closely for increased anti-hypertensive effects.

Hepatic or Renal Impairment: No dose adjustment required.

Administration

Clevidipine is for intravenous use. Titrate to achieve the desired blood pressure reduction

Initial dose: Initiate infusion at 4 ml/h (2 mg/h); the dose may be doubled as quickly as every 90 seconds. Continue titration until desired target range is achieved.

Maintenance dose: The desired therapeutic response for most patients occurs at doses of 8 – 12 ml/h (4 - 6 mg/h).

Maximum dose: The maximum recommended dose is 64 ml/h (32 mg/h). No more than 1000 ml of clevidipine infusion is recommended in the initial 24-hour period due to associated lipid load. There is limited experience with infusion durations beyond 72 hours at any dose.

Transition to an oral antihypertensive agent: Discontinue clevidipine or titrate downward while appropriate oral therapy is established.

Shelf life

2 years refrigerated (2-8ºC) of which 2 months may be below 25ºC

Do not return to refrigerated storage after beginning 25ºC storage

Do not freeze. The freezing point of Cleviprex is between -1°C and 0°C
