Overview

What is OXTELLAR XR?

Oxtellar XR is an antiepileptic drug (AED). Oxtellar XR extended-release tablets contain oxcarbazepine for once-a-day oral administration.

Oxcarbazepine is 10,11-Dihydro-10-oxo-5H-dibenz[b,f]-azepine-5-carboxamide, and its structural formula is

Oxcarbazepine is off-white to yellow crystalline powder.

Oxcarbazepine is sparingly soluble in chloroform (30-100 g/L). In aqueous media over pH range 1 to 8, oxcarbazepine is practically insoluble and its solubility is 40 mg/L (0.04 g/L) at pH 7.0, 25°C. The molecular formula is CHNO and its molecular weight is 252.27.

Oxtellar XR tablets contain the following inactive ingredients: colloidal silicon dioxide, hypromellose, yellow iron oxide (150 mg, 300 mg tablets only), red iron oxide (300 mg, 600 mg tablets only), black iron oxide (300 mg tablet only), magnesium stearate, methacrylic acid copolymer, microcrystalline cellulose, polyethylene glycol, polyvinyl alcohol, povidone, sodium lauryl sulfate, talc, and titanium dioxide. Each tablet is printed on one side with edible black ink.

What should I talk to my health care provider before I take OXTELLAR XR?

How should I use OXTELLAR XR?

Oxtellar XR is indicated as adjunctive therapy of partial seizures in adults and in children 6 years to 17 years of age.

Administer Oxtellar XR as a single daily dose taken on an empty stomach (at least 1 hour before or at least 2 hours after meals) [see ]. If Oxtellar XR is taken with food, adverse reactions are more likely to occur because of increased peak levels [see ].

Swallow Oxtellar XR tablets whole. Do not cut, crush, or chew the tablets. For ease of swallowing in pediatric patients or patients with difficulty swallowing, achieve daily dosages with multiples of appropriate lower strength tablets (e.g., 150 mg tablets).

Clinical Information

Chemical Structure

Clinical Pharmacology

The pharmacological activity of Oxtellar XR is primarily exerted through the 10-monohydroxy metabolite (MHD) of oxcarbazepine [see ]. The precise mechanism by which oxcarbazepine and MHD exert their antiseizure effect is unknown; however, in vitro electrophysiological studies indicate that they produce blockade of voltage-sensitive sodium channels, resulting in stabilization of hyperexcited neural membranes, inhibition of repetitive neuronal firing, and diminution of propagation of synaptic impulses. These actions are thought to be important in the prevention of seizure spread in the intact brain. In addition, increased potassium conductance and modulation of high-voltage activated calcium channels may contribute to the anticonvulsant effects of the drug. No significant interactions of oxcarbazepine or MHD with brain neurotransmitter or modulator receptor sites have been demonstrated.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
Oxtellar XR is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to oxcarbazepine or to any of its components [see ].

Cromolyn sodium and isoproterenol were studied following subcutaneous injections in pregnant mice. Cromolyn sodium alone in doses up to 540 mg/kg (approximately 27 times the maximum recommended adult human daily inhalation dose on a mg/m basis) did not cause significant increases in resorptions or major malformations. Isoproterenol alone at a dose of 2.7 mg/kg (approximately 7 times the maximum recommended adult human daily inhalation dose on a mg/m basis) increased both resorptions and malformations. The addition of cromolyn sodium (approximately 27 times the maximum recommended adult human daily inhalation dose on a mg/m basis) to isoproterenol (approximately 7 times the maximum recommended adult human daily inhalation dose on a mg/m basis) appears to have increased the incidence of both resorptions and malformations.

Clinically significant hyponatremia (sodium
Most immediate-release oxcarbazepine-treated patients who developed hyponatremia were asymptomatic in clinical trials. However, some of these patients had their dose reduced, discontinued, or had their fluid intake restricted for hyponatremia. Serum sodium levels returned toward normal when the dosage was reduced or discontinued, or when the patient was treated conservatively (e.g., fluid restriction). Post-marketing cases of symptomatic hyponatremia have been reported during post-marketing use of immediate-release oxcarbazepine.

Among treated patients in a controlled trial of adjunctive therapy with Oxtellar XRin 366 adults with complex partial seizures, 1 patient receiving 2400 mg experienced a severe reduction in serum sodium (117 mEq/L) requiring discontinuation from treatment, while 2 other patients receiving 1200 mg experienced serum sodium concentrations low enough (125 and 126 mEq/L) to require discontinuation from treatment. The overall incidence of clinically significant hyponatremia in patients treated with Oxtellar XRwas 1.2%, although slight shifts in serum sodium concentrations from Normal to Low (
