2.6 Preparation and Storage Instructions for MYRBETRIQ Granules

The required dose for MYRBETRIQ Granules (mirabegron for extended-release oral suspension) is calculated based on the weight of the patient. Prepare oral suspension at the time of dispensing.

Keep the bottle in the pouch up until the time of reconstitution.

• Discard the pouch and desiccant prior to reconstitution. Do not dispense.
• Tap the closed bottle several times to loosen the granules.
• Measure 100 mL of water, add the total amount to the bottle, and immediately shake vigorously for 1 minute, then let it stand for 10 to 30 minutes. Shake vigorously again for 1 minute.
• If granules have not dispersed, shake vigorously for another 1 minute.
• Record the 28-day expiration date on the container and carton based on the reconstitution date.
• Give the patient an appropriate dosing device.
• Store the reconstituted suspension at 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F) for up to 28 days.
• Discard the unused portion after 28 days
[see How Supplied/Storage and Handling (16.2)].

After reconstitution with 100 mL water, the suspension contains 8 mg/mL of mirabegron.

2.7 Administration Instructions

Administration instructions for MYRBETRIQ and MYRBETRIQ Granules differ based on the patient population.

Adult patients: Swallow MYRBETRIQ whole with water. Do not chew, divide, or crush. Take with or without food.

Pediatric patients: Swallow MYRBETRIQ whole with water. Do not chew, divide, or crush. Take with food [see Use in Specific Populations (8.4)].

MYRBETRIQ Granules

Adult patients: A recommended dosage for MYRBETRIQ Granules for adults has not been determined.

Pediatric patients: Take MYRBETRIQ Granules prepared as an extended-release oral suspension [see Dosage and Administration (2.6)]. Take with food to reduce potential exposure-related risks [see Use in Specific Populations (8.4)].

2.8 Missed Dose
