How should I use Suprenza?

Suprenza is indicated as a short-term (a few weeks) adjunct in a regimen of weight reduction based on exercise, behavioral modification and caloric restriction in the management of exogenous obesity for patients with an initial body mass index greater than or equal to 30 kg/m, or greater than or equal to 27 kg/m in the presence of other risk factors (e.g., controlled hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia).

Below is a chart of body mass index (BMI) based on various heights and weights.

BMI is calculated by taking the patient’s weight, in kilograms (kg), divided by the patient’s height, in meters (m), squared. Metric conversions are as follows: pounds ÷ 2.2 = kg; inches x 0.0254 = meters.

Height (feet, inches)

The limited usefulness of agents of this class, including Suprenza,  [see ] should be measured against possible risk factors inherent in their use such as those described below.

Exogenous Obesity

Dosage should be individualized to obtain an adequate response with the lowest effective dose.

The usual adult dose is one tablet as prescribed by the physician, administered in the morning, with or without food. Suprenzais not recommended for use in pediatric patients less than or equal to 16 years of age. 

Late evening medication should be avoided because of the possibility of resulting insomnia.

With dry hands, gently remove the Suprenza (phentermine hydrochloride ODT) tablet from the bottle. Immediately place the Suprenza tablet on top of the tongue where it will dissolve, then swallow with or without water.

How should I store and handle Suprenza?

TOBI should be stored under refrigeration at 2ºC–8ºC/36ºF–46ºF. Upon removal from the refrigerator, or if refrigeration is unavailable, TOBI pouches (opened or unopened) may be stored at room temperature (up to 25ºC/77ºF) for up to 28 days. TOBI should not be used beyond the expiration date stamped on the ampule when stored under refrigeration (2ºC–8ºC/36ºF–46ºF) or beyond 28 days when stored at room temperature (25ºC/77ºF).TOBI ampules should not be exposed to intense light. The solution in the ampule is slightly yellow, but may darken with age if not stored in the refrigerator; however, the color change does not indicate any change in the quality of the product as long as it is stored within the recommended storage conditions.TOBI should be stored under refrigeration at 2ºC–8ºC/36ºF–46ºF.

Clinical Pharmacology

Suprenza is a sympathomimetic amine with pharmacologic activity similar to the prototype drugs of this class used in obesity, amphetamine (d- and dl-amphetamine). Drugs of this class used in obesity are commonly known as “anorectics” or “anorexigenics.” It has not been established that the primary action of such drugs in treating obesity is one of appetite suppression since other central nervous system actions, or metabolic effects, may also be involved.
