1 Analysis of New Brand Name Drugs for MDD and Bipolar I Depression/Schizophrenia By Minh Vo, DO
2 Fetzima Brand: Fetzima Generic: levomilnacipran (generic not available) Commonly Prescribed for: major depressive disorders in adults How the Drug works: Active enantiomer milnacipran; potent inhibitor of neuronal serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake (SNRI); inhibits norepinephrine uptake with ~3-fold higher potency in vitro than serotonin without directly affecting the uptake of dopamine or other neurotransmitters How does it compare to other Drugs: Moderate number adverse effects. More threatening adverse effects such as Glaucoma. Require Renal Dosing Require monitoring of BP and Heart rate. Similar Depression score improvement as other drugs. How long till it works: approximately 2 weeks. If it works: Patient will have less Depression based on mean reduction in MADRS score of 3.4 compared to placebo. If it doesn t work: Increase dose, or consider different medication. Tests: Blood pressure and heart rate should be measured prior to initiating treatment and periodically throughout FETZIMA treatment. Pre-existing hypertension should be controlled before initiating treatment with FETZIMA

Overdose: In clinical studies, cases of ingestions up to 360 mg daily were reported with none being fatal. Long-Term Use: No tolerance noted. Efficacy was not established beyond 8 weeks. Over 1 year of use, the mean increase BP from initiation of treatment in systolic BP was 3.9 mm Hg and diastolic BP was 3. 1 mm Hg. Habit forming: No Pharmacokinetics and interactions: Other than CYP3A4 drug interactions, FETZIMA is predicted, based on in vitro studies, to have a low potential to be i nvolved in clinically significant pharmacokinetic drug interactions. Excretion: 58% unchanged in urine; 18% N-desethyl metabolite in urine Pharmacodynamics: An in vivo study showed a clinically meaningful increase in levomilnacipran exposure when FETZIMA was co-administered with the CYP3A4 inhibitor ketoconazole : Do not exceed 80 mg once daily. Precautions: Antidepressants increased the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior in children, adolescents, and young adults in short-term studies. These studies did not show an increase in the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior with antidepressant use in patients over age 24 Do Not Use: Hypersensitivity Uncontrolled narrow-angle glaucoma Do not use MAOIs intended to treat psychiatric disorders with levomilnacipran or within 7 days of stopping levomilnacipran due to an increased risk of serotonin syndrome Do not initiate levomilnacipran within 14 days of stopping an MAOI How to Stop: Gradually titrate down before stopping.
