GlaxoSmithKline And XenoPort Receive FDA Approval For Horizant™

The dose of gabapentin enacarbil should be adjusted in subjects with renal impairment (creatinine clearance 30 to 59 mL/min); gabapentin enacarbil 600 mg should be administered on Day 1, Day 3, and every day thereafter. Gabapentin enacarbil is not recommended in patients with creatinine clearance less than 30 mL/min or in patients on hemodialysis.

In three 12-week clinical trials, the two most commonly observed adverse reactions for gabapentin enacarbil 600 mg per day (n=163), gabapentin enacarbil 1200 mg per day (n=269), and placebo (n=245), respectively, were somnolence/sedation (20%, 27%, and 6%) and dizziness (13%, 22%, and 4%).

About Restless Legs Syndrome (also known as Ekbom Disease)

Restless Legs Syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by an urge to move the legs usually caused or accompanied by uncomfortable and unpleasant sensations in the legs. Estimates of the prevalence for Restless Legs Syndrome in adult patients with medically-significant symptoms ranged between 1.5% to 2.7% in U.S. and/or western European populations. 1,2,3,4 Key diagnostic criteria for Restless Legs Syndrome are: an urge to move the legs usually accompanied or caused by uncomfortable and unpleasant leg sensations, symptoms begin or worsen during periods of rest or inactivity such as lying or sitting, symptoms are partially or totally relieved by movement such as walking or stretching at least as long as the activity continues, and symptoms are worse or occur only in the evening or night. Studies have identified potential gene variants associated with Restless Legs Syndrome. Research in this area is ongoing.
