About ALYQ

ALYQ™ is indicated for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) (WHO Group 1) to improve exercise ability. Studies establishing effectiveness included predominately patients with NYHA Functional Class II – III symptoms and etiologies of idiopathic or heritable PAH (61%) or PAH associated with connective tissue diseases (23%).

 

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Do not use ALYQ™ in patients who are using any form of organic nitrate, either regularly or intermittently. ALYQ™ potentiates the hypotensive effect of nitrates. Do not use ALYQ™ in patients who are using a guanylate cyclase (GC) stimulator, such as riociguat. ALYQ™ may potentiate the hypotensive effects of GC stimulators.  ALYQ™ is contraindicated in patients with a known serious hypersensitivity to tadalafil. Hypersensitivity reactions have been reported, including Stevens-Johnson syndrome and exfoliative dermatitis.

Patients who experience anginal chest pain after taking ALYQ™ should seek immediate medical attention.  PDE5 inhibitors, including tadalafil, have mild systemic vasodilatory properties that may result in transient decreases in blood pressure.  Patients with severely impaired autonomic control of blood pressure or with left ventricular outflow obstruction may be particularly sensitive to the actions of vasodilators, including PDE5 inhibitors. Pulmonary vasodilators may significantly worsen the cardiovascular status of patients with pulmonary veno-occlusive disease (PVOD).

PDE5 inhibitors, including ALYQ™, and alpha-adrenergic blocking agents are vasodilators with blood pressure-lowering effects. When vasodilators are used in combination, an additive effect on blood pressure may be anticipated. Safety of combined use of PDE5 inhibitors and alpha blockers may be affected by other variables, including intravascular volume depletion and use of other antihypertensive drugs.  Both alcohol and tadalafil are mild vasodilators. When mild vasodilators are taken in combination, blood pressure-lowering effects are increased.

Use of ALYQ™ in patients taking ritonavir requires dosage adjustment.  Avoid use of ALYQ™ in patients taking potent inhibitors of CYP3A such as ketoconazole and itraconazole, and in patients chronically taking potent inducers of CYP3A, such as rifampin.  A lower starting dose of ALYQ™ should be used in patients with mild or moderate renal or hepatic impairment.  Avoid use of ALYQ™ in patients with severe renal or hepatic impairment.

Patients should seek immediate medical attention in the event of a sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes. Such an event may be a sign of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), a cause of decreased vision, including permanent loss of vision.  Patients should seek immediate medical attention in the event of sudden decrease or loss of hearing.

Tadalafil is also marketed as CIALIS®[2]. The safety and efficacy of taking ALYQ™ together with CIALIS® or other PDE5 inhibitors have not been studied.  Patients taking ALYQ™ should not take CIALIS® or other PDE5 inhibitors.  There have been rare reports of prolonged erections greater than 4 hours and priapism for this class of compounds.  Patients who have an erection lasting greater than 4 hours, whether painful or not, should seek emergency medical attention.

In a placebo-controlled clinical study, the most common adverse events (reported by ≥9% of patients in the tadalafil tablets 40 mg group and more frequent than placebo by 2%) were: headache, myalgia, nasopharyngitis, flushing, respiratory tract infection, extremity pain, nausea, back pain, dyspepsia, and nasal congestion.
