Emsam Drug Description
EMSAM®
(selegiline transdermal) System
CONTINUOUS DELIVERY FOR ONCE-DAILY APPLICATION

Suicidality and Antidepressant Drugs
Antidepressants increased the risk compared to placebo of suicidal thinking
and behavior (suicidality) in children, adolescents, and young adults in short-term
studies of major depressive disorder (MDD) and other psychiatric disorders.
Anyone considering the use of EMSAM or any other antidepressant in a child,
adolescent, or young adult must balance this risk with the clinical need.
Short term studies did not show an increase in the risk of suicidality with
antidepressants compared to placebo in adults beyond age 24; there was a reduction
in risk with antidepressants compared to placebo in adults aged 65 and older.
Depression and certain other psychiatric disorders are themselves associated
with increases in the risk of suicide. Patients of all ages who are started
on antidepressant therapy should be monitored appropriately and observed closely
for clinical worsening,suicidality,or unusual changes in behavior.Families
and caregivers should be advised for the need for close observation and communication
with the prescriber. EMSAM is not approved for use in pediatric patients.Furthermore,EMSAM
at any dose should not be used in children under the age of 12, even when
administered with dietary modifications. (See WARNINGS:
Clinical Worsening and Suicide Risk, PRECAUTIONS: Information
for Patients, and PRECAUTIONS: Pediatric Use.)

EMSAM® (selegiline transdermal system) is a transdermally administered
antidepressant. When applied to intact skin, EMSAM is designed to continuously
deliver selegiline over a 24-hour period. Selegiline base is a colorless to
yellow liquid, chemically described as (-)-(N)-Methyl- N-[(1
R)-1-methyl-2- phenylethyl]prop-2-yn-1-amine. It has an empirical formula
of C13H17N and a molecular weight of 187.30. The structural
formula is:








EMSAM systems are transdermal patches that contain 1 mg of selegiline
per cm2 and deliver approximately 0.3 mg of selegiline
per cm2 over 24 hours. EMSAM systems are available
in three sizes: 20 mg/20 cm2, 30 mg/30 cm2,
and 40 mg/40 cm2 that deliver, on average, doses of 6
mg, 9 mg, or 12 mg, respectively, of selegiline over 24 hours.
EMSAM is a matrix-type transdermal system composed of three layers as illustrated in Figure 1 below.Layer 1 is the Backing Film that provides the matrix system with occlusivity and physical integrity and protects the adhesive/drug layer.Layer 2 is the Adhesive/Drug Layer.Layer 3 consists of side-by-side release liners that are peeled off and discarded by the patient prior to applying EMSAM.The inactive ingredients are acrylic adhesive, ethylene vinyl acetate/polyethylene,polyester,polyurethane,and silicon coated polyester.
