Overview

What is Orenitram?

Orenitram is an extended release osmotic tablet for oral administration. Orenitram is formulated as the diolamine salt of treprostinil, a tricyclic benzindene analogue of prostacyclin. The chemical name is Acetic acid, 2-[[(1,2,3a,9a)-2,3,3a,4,9,9a-hexahydro-2-hydroxy-1-[(3)-3-hydroxyoctyl]-1-benz[f]inden-5-yl]oxy]-, complexed with 2,2'-iminobis[ethanol] (1:1). The molecular formula is CHO.CHNO, the molecular weight is 495.65, and it has the following structural formula:

Orenitram tablets are formulated in five strengths, which contain 0.125 mg of treprostinil (equivalent to 0.159 mg treprostinil diolamine), 0.25 mg of treprostinil (equivalent to 0.317 mg treprostinil diolamine), 1 mg of treprostinil (equivalent to 1.27 mg treprostinil diolamine), 2.5 mg of treprostinil (equivalent to 3.17 mg treprostinil diolamine) or 5 mg of treprostinil (equivalent to 6.35 mg treprostinil diolamine). The formulations also contain xylitol, maltodextrin, sodium lauryl sulfate, magnesium stearate, cellulose acetate, triethyl citrate, polyvinyl alcohol, titanium dioxide, polyethylene glycol, and talc. In addition tablets may contain colorants FD&C Blue #2, iron oxide yellow, and iron oxide red. The imprinting ink contains shellac glaze, ethanol, isopropyl alcohol USP, iron oxide black, n-butyl alcohol, and propylene glycol.

Orenitram is designed to release treprostinil at a near zero-order rate using an osmotic tablet technology. The tablet core is coated with a semi-permeable membrane and has a laser-drilled aperture through the membrane. Upon contact with water (e.g., after ingestion), the core tablet absorbs water through the semi-permeable membrane. The water dissolves the water-soluble treprostinil diolamine and the water-soluble osmotic excipients, which creates hydrostatic pressure within the membrane, eventually forcing the drug out through the tablet at a controlled rate.

The recommended starting dose of Orenitram is 0.25 mg twice daily (BID) with food, taken approximately 12 hours apart or 0.125 mg three times daily (TID) with food, taken approximately 8 hours apart. Increase the dose to the highest tolerated dose. The recommended increment is 0.25 or 0.5 mg BID or 0.125 mg TID every 3-4 days. If dose increments are not tolerated consider titrating slower.

The appropriate maintenance dose is determined by tolerability.

If intolerable pharmacologic effects occur, decrease the dose in increments of 0.25 mg. .
