Xyrem Drug Description
Xyrem®
(sodium oxybate) Oral Solution

WARNING: Central nervous system depressant with abuse potential.
Should not be used with alcohol or other CNS depressants.
Sodium oxybate is GHB, a known drug of abuse. Abuse has been associated
with some important central nervous system (CNS) adverse events (including death).
Even at recommended doses, use has been associated with confusion, depression
and other neuropsychiatric events. Reports of respiratory depression occurred
in clinical trials. Almost all of the patients who received sodium oxybate during
clinical trials were receiving CNS stimulants.
Important CNS adverse events associated with abuse of GHB include seizure,
respiratory depression and profound decreases in level of consciousness, with
instances of coma and death. For events that occurred outside of clinical trials,
in people taking GHB for recreational purposes, the circumstances surrounding
the events are often unclear (e.g., dose of GHB taken, the nature and amount
of alcohol or any concomitant drugs).
Xyrem is available through the Xyrem Success Program, using a centralized
pharmacy 1-866-XYREM88® (1-866-997-3688). The Success Program provides
educational materials to the prescriber and the patient explaining the risks
and proper use of sodium oxybate, and the required prescription form. Once
it is documented that the patient has read and/or understood the materials,
the drug will be shipped to the patient. The Xyrem Success Program also recommends
patient follow-up every 3 months. Physicians are expected to report all serious
adverse events to the manufacturer. (See WARNINGS).
