INDICATIONS AND USAGE
PRALUENT® is indicated:
·To reduce the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, and unstable angina requiring hospitalization in adults with established cardiovascular disease.
·As an adjunct to diet, alone or in combination with other low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C)-lowering therapies, in adults with primary hyperlipidemia, including heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH), to reduce LDL-C.
·As an adjunct to other LDL-C-lowering therapies in adult patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) to reduce LDL-C.
·In adults with established cardiovascular disease or with primary hyperlipidemia, including HeFH:
The recommended starting dose of PRALUENT is either 75 mg once every 2 weeks or 300 mg once every 4 weeks administered subcutaneously.
For patients receiving PRALUENT 300 mg every 4 weeks, measure LDL-C just prior to the next scheduled dose, because LDL-C can vary between doses in some patients.
If the LDL-C response is inadequate, the dosage may be adjusted 150 mg subcutaneously every 2 weeks.
·In adults with HeFH undergoing LDL apheresis or in adults with HoFH:
The recommended dose of PRALUENT is 150 mg once every 2 weeks administered subcutaneously.
PRALUENT can be administered without regard to the timing of LDL apheresis.
·Assess LDL-C when clinically appropriate. The LDL-lowering effect of PRALUENT may be measured as early as 4 weeks after initiation.
