The recommended dosage is 100 mg administered by intravenous infusion every 3 months. Some patients may benefit from a dosage of 300 mg administered by intravenous infusion every 3 months.
VYEPTI requires dilution prior to administration. Dilute only in 100 mL 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection, USP. The infusion bags must be made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), or polyolefin (PO). Use appropriate aseptic technique when preparing VYEPTI solution for intravenous infusion. VYEPTI single-dose vials contain no preservative; discard unused portion remaining in the vial.
100 mg dose:
To prepare the solution, withdraw 1 mL of VYEPTI from a single-dose vial using a sterile needle and syringe. Inject the 1 mL content into a 100 mL bag of 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection, USP.
300 mg dose:
To prepare the solution, withdraw 1 mL of VYEPTI from each of 3 single-dose vials using a sterile needle and syringe. Inject the resulting 3 mL content into a 100 mL bag of 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection, USP.
Storage and Handling of Diluted Product
Gently invert the VYEPTI solution to mix completely. Do not shake. Following dilution, VYEPTI solution must be infused within 8 hours. During this time, VYEPTI solution should be stored at room temperature, 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F). Do not freeze.
Infusion Administration Instructions
Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit. Do not use if the liquid contains visible particulate matter or is cloudy or discolored [see Dosage Forms and Strengths (3)].
No other medications should be administered through the infusion set or mixed with VYEPTI. VYEPTI is for intravenous infusion only; infuse over approximately 30 minutes. Do not administer VYEPTI as an intravenous push or bolus injection. Use an intravenous infusion set with a 0.2 micron or 0.22 micron in-line or add-on sterile filter. After the infusion is complete, flush the line with 20 mL of 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection, USP.
