PRILOSEC** (OMEPRAZOLE) Delayod-Release Capsules BRIEF SUMMARY provide .1 lor has the tr, CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY MwnucoUMUct mrj MmttoHmi Ompnuolt - In pharmacokr«tic studies of single 20 mg omeprazole doses, an increase m AUC of approximately tour-fold was noted in Asian suojects compared to Caucasans. Dose adiustment. particularly where maintenance ol tesng o' erosive esopnagitis is indicated, for the hepaticaty impaired and Asian subjects should be considered. INDICATIONS ANO USAGE DuorJtntl IHctr PRILOSEC is indcated lor snort-term treatment ol adve duodenal ulcer. Most patents heal within 4 weeks. Some patents may require an additional 4 vreeks of therapy. PRILOSEC. in combination wrtn darithromydn, is also indicated for treatment of patients win H. pylori infection and active duodenal ulcer to eradCate H. pylori. Eraoication of H. pylori has been shown to reduce the risk ol duodenal ulcer recurrence, in patients who fail therapy, susceptic-iity testing should be done. If resistance to darithromyc n is demonstrated or suscep- ttoiity testing is net possible, alternative antime-obial therapy should be instituted. (See the cMhromycin package insert, MCROBOLOGY section.) Owl/*: (liar. PRILOSEC is iidicated lor snort-term treatment (4-8 weeks) of active benign gastric ulcer. DMtnwil o/ OuirMtopfijgM/ Mta Dattu fBEHOj: Symptomatic OEM) - PRILOSEC is indicated la- the treatment ol heartburn and other symptoms associated with GERD. Erarn EMprugWi - PRILOSEC is indicated for Ihe short-term treatment (4-8 weeks) ol erosive esophagitis wtuch has been diagnosed by endoscopy. The elfcacy of PfllLOSEC used lor longer than 8 weeks in these patients has not been established. In tne rare instance of a patient not responding to 8 weeks of treatment, it may be helpful to give up to an additional 4 weeks of treatment. If here is recurrence of erosive esophagitis or GERD symptoms (e.g. heartburn), add'tional 4-8 week courses o! omeprazole may be considered. Muntuuact ol Huang o/Eret/n EMpni«ttfc PRILOSEC is inoicated to maintain healing of erosive esophagitis. Controllea studies do not extend beyond 12 months. ArttofegfciJ Hnmtcntory ConoVftorw PRILOSEC is indicated lor the tang-term treatment ol palnotogcal hypersecretory conditions (e.g.,Z<*iger-Elson syndrome, multiple endocnne aoenomas and systemic mastocytosis). CONTRAINDICATIONS Ompwofc PRILOSEC Delayed-Release Capsuks are contraindicated in patients wth known nypersensitjvrty to any component of Ine formulation. CMtfvofnycin: Clarilhromyon is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersenstMty to any macrolide antibiotic, and In patients receiving terfenadine therapy who have pre-existing cardiac abnormalities or eksctrolyle disturbances. (Rease refer to full prescribing information for darithrornycin before prescnbirtg.) WARNING: ClvtUmnydn: CLAIUTHROMVCM SHOULD NOT BE USED IN PREGNANT WOMEN EXCEPT IN CLINICAL CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE NO ALTERNATIVE THERAPY 18 APPROPRIATE If PREGNANCY OCCURS WHILE TAKING CLARTTHROMVCIN, THE PATIENT SHOULD BE APPRISED OF THE POTENTIAL HAZARD TO THE rtTUS. |«M WARNINGS In prwcfWng Wormrton lor ctarthromycln.) PRECAUTIONS Gmni Symptomate response lo therapy with omeprazole does not preckjde the presence ol gastnc rra&gnancy. Atrophic gastritis has been noted occasionally in gastric corpus biopsies from patients treated long- term wth omep'azote. Womuftw torPtUtatt: PRILOSEC Delayed-Release Capsules should be taken before eating. Patients should be cautoned that the PRILOSEC Delayeo-Release Capsule should rat be opened, chewed or crushed, and shojld be swallowed whote. Drug fnfmclfoni: Othtr - Omeprazoe can prolong the eSmination ol diazepam. warfarin aid phenytoin, drugs that are metabolized by oxidation in the liver. Although in normal subjects no interaction with theophyline or proprandoi was found, the^ have been dWca! reports of interaction with other drugs metaixtad via tne cytochrome P-450 system (e.g, cydosporine. disu*am. benzodiazepines). Patients shouW be monitored to detenrine if it is necessary to adjust the dosage ol these drugs when taken concomitanlly wth PRILOSEC Because of its profound aid long lasting inhibiton of gastrk; acid secretion, it is theoretically possible that omeprazole may interfere wth aosorpton ol drugs where gastric pH is an important determinant of tner boavalabilny (e.g.. ketoconazote. arrpioilin esters, and ron salts), h the dmcal trials, antacids were used concomitant.!/ with the administration ol PRILOSEC. Combination Therapy wttti CUrtthromycIn - Co-administration ol omeprazole and clantnromydn may result in increases in plasma levels ol omeprazole. darithrornycin, and 14-hydroxy-ctanthromycin. (See CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY. PtamacoMnelrcs: Combination Therapy with CWrVomjon u\ M Presorting Information.) Cardragtrmii, HvHtmuli, ImpaJrmanl o/ftrtaHy: m two 24-month cargnogeniciiy sludes in rals, omeprazole at daily doses of 1.7,3.4, and 140.8 mg/kg/day (approximately 4 to 352 tines the human dose, based on a patient weight ol 50 kg ana a human dose ol 20 mg) produced gastnc ECL eel carcinoids in a dose-re ated manner in both mate and lemaie rats: the incidence ol this affect was markedly higher in female rats, which had higher blood levels ol oxeprazole. Gastnc carcinoios seldom occur in ihe untreated ral. In addition. ECL eel hyperplasia was present in it treated groups of both sexes In one ol these female rals were treated with '3.8 mo/kg/day omeprazole (approxmately 35 times the human dose) tor 1 year, men foiowea lor an additional year without the drug. No carcinotds were seen in iriese rats. An increased incidence ol treatment-related ECL eel hyperplasia was observed at the end of 1 year (94% (reateo vs 1C~ controls). By the second year He difference between treated and control rats was much smaller (46% vs 26%) bjt si 11 snowed nore hyperpiasia m the treated group. An unusual prunary malignant tumor in the stomach was seen In one rat (2%). No simiar tumor was seen \r male or 'emale rats treated for 2 years. For this strain o' rat no similar tumor nas been noted historcaSy, but a f.nd,ng rvrAng ony one tumor is difficult to Werprel. A 78-week mouse ca'drx>gan«ci!y stuoy of omeprazoie did not show increases tumor occurrence, but the study was not condusrve Orneprazols was not mutagenic .n an in vnro Ames S&mmala typrrnwun assay, an in vitro mouse lymphoma cell assay and an in wvo lat In* UNA damage assay. A mouse mcronuclejs lest at 625 and 6250 tmes the human oose gave a terete** result, as did an in wvo bone marrow crwnosome aberration test. A second mouse micronucieus study at 2000 limes the human dcse, but with different (suboptimal) sampling times, v,ss negative. Pregnancy: Omtfmofe Pregnancy Category C - In raocxts. omeprazole in a dose range of 6.9 lo 69.1 mg/kg/day (approximately 17 to 172 times the human dose) produced oose-relaled increases n embryo-letnalny. letal resorptions and pregnancy disruptions. In rals, dose-related embryo/feta toxicity and postnatal development toxidty were observed ft oflspnng resulting from parents treated with omeprazole 13.8 to 138.0 mg/kg/day (approximately 35 lo 345 times the human dose). There a'e no adequate or well-controliea studies in pregnant women. Sporadic reports have been received ol congervia 1 abnormalrtes occurring in rtants born lo women who have received omeprazote during pregnancy. Omeprazoie snouid be used during pregnancy only rt tne potential benefit justifies tne potential risk to the fetus. ClarMvomydn: Prtguncy Ciltgory C - See WARNING (above) ano full prescr&ng information lor darithromyon before using in pregnant women. Hurting Uotim: It is not known whether omeprazole is exoeted in human m*. In rats, omeprazole administration during late gestation and fetation at doses of 13.8 to 138 mgltg/day (35 to 345 times the human dose) resulted in decreased weight gain In peps. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, oecause of tne potential for serious adverse reactons in nurs^g slants from omeprazole, and because of tne potential tor tumori- gervcity shown for omeprazole in rat carcnogen'oty stuoies. a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or discontinue tr« drug, taking into account the knportance of Ihe drug to the mother.
