4.4 Special warnings and precautions for use

Dystonia

Axial dystonia including antecollis, camptocormia and pleurothotonus (Pisa Syndrome) has occasionally been reported in patients with Parkinson’s disease following initiation or incremental dose increase of pramipexole. Although dystonia may be a symptom of Parkinson’s disease, the symptoms in these patients have improved after reduction or withdrawal of pramipexole. If dystonia occurs, the dopaminergic medication regimen should be reviewed and an adjustment in the dose of pramipexole considered.

4. CLINICAL PARTICULARS

Dopamine dysregulation Syndrome
Dopamine dysregulation Syndrome (DDS) is an addictive disorder resulting in excessive use of the product seen in some patients treated with dopaminergic medications, including pramipexole. Before initiation of treatment, patients and caregivers should be warned of the potential risk of developing DDS.

Neuroleptic malignant syndrome
Symptoms suggestive of neuroleptic malignant syndrome have been reported with abrupt withdrawal of dopaminergic therapy (see section 4.2).

Dopamine agonist withdrawal syndrome
To discontinue treatment in patients with Parkinson’s disease, pramipexole should be tapered off (see section 4.2). Non-motor adverse effects may occur when tapering or discontinuing dopamine agonists including pramipexole. Symptoms include apathy, anxiety, depression, fatigue, sweating and pain which may be severe. Patients should be informed about this before tapering the dopamine agonist, and monitored regularly thereafter. In case of persistent symptoms, it may be necessary to increase the pramipexole dose temporarily (see section 4.8).


4.8 Undesirable effects

Expected adverse reactions
The following adverse reactions are expected under the use of Pramipexole Mylan: abnormal dreams, amnesia, behavioural symptoms of impulse control disorders and compulsions such as binge eating, compulsive shopping, hypersexuality and pathological gambling; cardiac failure, confusion, constipation, delirium, delusion, dizziness, dyskinesia, dyspnoea, fatigue, hallucinations, headache, hiccups, hyperkinesia, hyperphagia, hypotension, inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion, insomnia, libido disorders, mania, nausea, paranoia, peripheral oedema, pneumonia, pruritus, rash and other hypersensitivity; restlessness, somnolence, sudden onset of sleep, syncope, visual impairment including diplopia, vision blurred and visual acuity reduced, vomiting, weight decrease including decreased appetite, weight increase.


Based on the analysis of pooled placebo-controlled trials, comprising a total of 1,923 patients on pramipexole and 1,354 patients on placebo, adverse drug reactions were frequently reported for both groups. 63% of patients on pramipexole and 52% of patients on placebo reported at least one adverse drug reaction.

Tables 1 and 2 display the frequency of adverse drug reactions from placebo-controlled clinical trials in Parkinson’s disease and other indication. The adverse drug reactions reported in these tables are those events that occurred in 0.1% or more of patients treated with pramipexole and were reported significantly more often in patients taking pramipexole than placebo, or where the event was considered clinically relevant. The majority of adverse drug reactions were mild to moderate, they usually start early in therapy, and most tended tend to disappear even as therapy was is continued.

Dopamine agonist withdrawal syndrome
Non-motor adverse effects may occur when tapering or discontinuing dopamine agonists including pramipexole. Symptoms include apathy, anxiety, depression, fatigue, sweating and pain (see section 4.4).

Cardiac failure
In clinical studies and post-marketing experience cardiac failure has been reported in patients with pramipexole. In a pharmaco-epidemiological study pramipexole use was associated with an increased risk of cardiac failure compared with non-use of pramipexole (observed risk ratio 1.86; 95% CI, 1.21-2.85).

The tablets should be taken orally, swallowed with water, and can be taken either with or without food. The daily dosage dose is administered in equally divided doses 3 times a day.

Initial treatment
Dosages Doses should be increased gradually from a starting-dose of 0.264 mg of base (0.375 mg of salt) per day and then increased every 5 - 7 days. Providing patients do not experience intolerable side- undesirable effects, the dosage dose should be titrated to achieve a maximal therapeutic effect.

Paediatric Populationpopulation
Pramipexole Mylan is not recommended for use in children and adolescents below 18 years due to a lack of data on The safety and efficacy
of pramipexole in children below 18 years have not been established. There is no relevant use of Pramipexole Mylan in the paediatric population in Parkinson’s disease.

Method of administration
For oral use.
The tables tablets should be taken orally, swallowed with water, and can be taken either with or without food.

Section 4.4

Mania and delirium

Patients should be regularly monitored for the development of mania and delirium. Patients and carers should be made aware that mania and delirium can occur in patients treated with pramipexole. Dose reduction/tapered discontinuation should be considered if such symptoms develop.

Section 4.8

Reporting of suspected adverse reactions
Reporting suspected adverse reactions after authorisation of the medicinal product is important. It allows continued monitoring of the benefit/risk balance of the medicinal product. Healthcare professionals are asked to report any suspected adverse reactions via HPRA Pharmacovigilance, Earlsfort Terrace, IRL - Dublin 2; Tel: +353 1 6764971; Fax: +353 1 6762517. Website: www.hpra.ie; e-mail: medsafety@hpra.ie.

Section 4.9
There is no clinical experience with massive overdosageoverdose. The expected adverse events reactions would be those related to the pharmacodynamic profile of a dopamine agonist, including nausea, vomiting, hyperkinesia, hallucinations, agitation and hypotension. There is no established antidote for overdosage overdose of a dopamine agonist. If signs of central nervous system stimulation are present, a neuroleptic agent may be indicated. Management of the overdose may require general supportive measures, along with gastric lavage, intravenous fluids, administration of activated charcoal and electrocardiogram monitoring.

Section 5.1
Mechanism of action
Pramipexole is a dopamine agonist that binds with high selectivity and specificity to the D2 subfamily of dopamine receptors of which it has a preferential affinity to D3 receptors, and has full intrinsic activity.

Pharmacodynamic effects
In human volunteers, a dose-dependent decrease in prolactin was observed. In a clinical trial with healthy volunteers, where pramipexole prolonged-release tablets were titrated faster (every 3 days) than recommended up to 3.15 mg pramipexole base (4.5 mg of salt) per day, an increase in blood pressure and heart rate was observed. Such effect was not observed in patient studies.

Clinical trials efficacy and safety in Parkinson’s disease 


Paediatric population
The European Medicines Agency has waived the obligation to submit the results of studies with the reference medicinal product containing pramipexole in all subsets of the paediatric population in Parkinson’s disease (see section 4.2 for information on paediatric use).
