WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

5.1 Serious Fluid and Serum Chemistry Abnormalities

Advise all patients to hydrate adequately before, during, and after the use of GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP. If a patient develops significant vomiting or signs of dehydration after taking GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP, consider performing post-colonoscopy lab tests (electrolytes, creatinine, and BUN). Fluid and electrolyte disturbances can lead to serious adverse events including cardiac arrhythmias, seizures and renal impairment.

Patients with electrolyte abnormalities should have them corrected before treatment with GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP. In addition, use caution when prescribing GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP for patients with conditions, or who are using medications, that increase the risk for fluid and electrolyte disturbances or may increase the risk of adverse events of seizure, arrhythmias, and renal impairment.[See Drug Interactions (7.1)]

5.2 Seizures

There have been reports of generalized tonic-clonic seizures with the use of large volume (4 liter) PEG-based colon preparation products in patients with no prior history of seizures. The seizure cases were associated with electrolyte abnormalities (e.g., hyponatremia, hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, and hypomagnesemia) and low serum osmolality. The neurologic abnormalities resolved with correction of fluid and electrolyte abnormalities.

Use caution when prescribing the GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP for patients with a history of seizures and in patients at risk of seizure, such as patients taking medications that lower the seizure threshold (e.g., tricyclic antidepressants), patients withdrawing from alcohol or benzodiazepines, patients with known or suspected hyponatremia, or patients using concomitant medications (such as diuretics) that increase the risk of electrolyte abnormalities. Monitor baseline and post-colonoscopy laboratory tests (sodium, potassium, calcium, creatinine, and BUN) in these patients.

5.3 Renal Impairment


Patients with impaired water handling who experience severe vomiting should be closely monitored including measurement of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, BUN and creatinine). Use caution when prescribing GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP for patients with impaired renal function or patients taking concomitant medications that may affect renal function (such as diuretics, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Advise these patients of the importance of adequate hydration and consider performing baseline and post-colonoscopy laboratory tests (electrolytes, creatinine, and BUN) in these patients.

5.4 Cardiac Arrhythmias


There have been rare reports of serious arrhythmias associated with the use of ionic osmotic laxative products for bowel preparation. Use caution when prescribing GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP for patients at increased risk of arrhythmias (e.g. patients with a history of prolonged QT, uncontrolled arrhythmias, recent myocardial infarction, unstable angina, congestive heart failure, or cardiomyopathy). Pre-dose and post-colonoscopy ECGs should be considered in patients at increased risk of serious cardiac arrhythmias.

5.5 Ischemic Colitis


There have been reports of ischemic colitis in patients with use of GaviLyte - H and 20 mg bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP and GaviLyte - H and 10 mg bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP. If patients develop severe abdominal pain or rectal bleeding, patients should be evaluated as soon as possible.

5.6 Patients with Significant Gastrointestinal Disease


If gastrointestinal obstruction or perforation is suspected, perform appropriate diagnostic studies to rule out these conditions before administering GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP

Use with caution in patients with severe active ulcerative colitis.

5.7 Aspiration


Use with caution in patients with impaired gag reflex and patients prone to regurgitation or aspiration. Such patients should be observed during administration of the GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP solution.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

6.1 Clinical Studies Experience


Because clinical studies are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical studies of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in clinical studies of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

In a clinical study of GaviLyte - H and (5 mg vs. 10 mg) bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP,  overall discomfort, abdominal fullness, abdominal cramping, nausea, and vomiting, were the most common adverse reactions (>3%). The data in Table 1 reflects the 154 patients that received GaviLyte - H and 5 mg bisacodyl tablet vs. the 154 patients that received GaviLyte - H and 10 mg bisacodyl tablets. The GaviLyte - H and 5 mg bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP  population was 29-87 years of age, 49% male, 51% female, 13% African American, 83% White, 5% Hispanic requiring a colonoscopy. The demographics of the comparator group were similar.

GaviLyte - H and 5 mg Bisacodyl Delayed-release Tablet, USP(N=154)] GaviLyte - H and 10 mg Bisacodyl Delayed-release Tablet, USP(N=154)
Overall Discomfort 57% 66%
Abdominal fullness 40% 53%
Abdominal cramping 38% 46%
Nausea 34% 42%
Vomiting 10% 7%

6.2 Postmarketing Experience


The following adverse reactions have been identified during post approval use of GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.

Allergic Reactions:
Cases of urticaria, rhinorrhea, dermatitis and anaphylactic reactions have been reported with PEG-based products.

Gastrointestinal:
There are isolated reports of serious post-marketing events following the administration of PEG-based products in patients over 60 years of age. These adverse reactions include upper GI bleeding from a Mallory-Weiss tear, esophageal perforation, asystole, and acute pulmonary edema after vomiting and aspirating the PEG-based solution. In addition, during administration of 4 liters of PEG-3350 colon cleansing preparation the following serious adverse reactions were seen: two deaths in end stage renal failure patients who developed diarrhea, vomiting and dysnatremia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].

Ischemic colitis has been reported with use of of GaviLyte - H and 20 mg and 10 mg bisacodyl delayed-release tablets, USP for colon preparation prior to colonoscopy. However, a causal relationship between these ischemic colitis cases and the use of GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablets, USP has not been established.

Neurologic:
There have been reports of generalized tonic-clonic seizures associated with use of large volume (4 liter) PEG-based colon preparation products in patients with no prior history of seizures. Cases of dizziness and syncope have been reported [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].

DRUG INTERACTIONS

7.1 Drugs That May Increase Risks of Fluid and Electrolyte Abnormalities

DESCRIPTION


GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP consists of PEG-3350, an osmotic laxative and bisacodyl, a stimulant laxative. Each GaviLyte - H and 5 mg bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP (Polyethylene glycol (PEG) 3350, sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate and potassium chloride for oral solution and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet) consists of one 2 liter bottle of GaviLyte – H (PEG-3350, sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate and potassium chloride for oral solution) powder for reconstitution and one 5 mg bisacodyl, delayed-release tablet, USP.

  • Bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP: Each pink, round, enteric coated bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP (debossed “N1”) contains 5 mg of bisacodyl, USP (C22H19NO4) with a molecular weight of 361.40. Inactive ingredients include lactose (anhydrous) NF, microcrystalline cellulose NF, croscarmellose sodium NF, magnesium stearate NF, methacrylic acid copolymer, talc, titanium dioxide, triethyl citrate, D&C red # 27/phloxine aluminum lake, colloidal anhydrous silica, sodium bicarbonate, sodium lauryl sulfate, FD&C blue # 2/indigo carmine aluminum lake and FD&C yellow # 6/sunset yellow FCF aluminum lake. The bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP is administered orally prior to drinking the GaviLyte - H [see Dosage and Administration (2)].
  • GaviLyte – H (PEG-3350, sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate and potassium chloride for oral solution): A white powder for reconstitution containing 210 grams of PEG-3350, 2.86 grams of sodium bicarbonate, 5.6 grams of sodium chloride, 0.74 grams of potassium chloride and 2 grams of flavoring ingredients (if applicable). Flavor Packs are available in Cherry (containing artificial cherry flavor powder, maltodextrin and sodium saccharin), Lemon (containing natural lemon flavor powder, maltodextrin and sodium saccharin),  and Orange (containing natural and artificial orange flavor powder, maltodextrin and sodium saccharin). This preparation can be used without the addition of a Flavor Pack. When dissolved in water to a volume of 2 liters, the GaviLyte - H solution is isosmotic, clear, and colorless. The GaviLyte - H solution is administered orally after taking the one bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP [see Dosage and Administration (2)].

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY


12.1 Mechanism of Action


Polyethylene glycol (PEG), which is an osmotic agent, causes water to be retained within the gastrointestinal tract.

Bisacodyl is hydrolyzed by intestinal brush border enzymes and colonic bacteria to form an active metabolite [bis-(p-hydroxyphenyl) pyridyl-2 methane; (BHPM)] that acts directly on the colonic mucosa to produce colonic peristalsis.

12.2 Pharmacodynamics

The stimulant laxative effect of bisacodyl, together with the osmotic effect of the unabsorbed PEG when ingested with a large volume of water, produces watery diarrhea.

12.3 PharmacoKinetics

When taken orally, PEG 3350 is minimally absorbed.

Bisacodyl, which is a prodrug, is converted to its active metabolite BHPM by intestinal brush border enzymes and colonic bacteria. The pharmacokinetics of bisacodyl following oral administration of the bisacodyl tablet has not been adequately characterized.

NONCLINICAL TOXICOLOGY


13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

Long-term studies in animals have not been performed to evaluate the carcinogenic potential of GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP. Studies to evaluate its potential for impairment of fertility or its mutagenic potential have not been performed.

CLINICAL STUDIES


The colon cleansing efficacy of GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP (with 5 mg of bisacodyl) was evaluated in a randomized, single blind (endoscopist only), active-controlled, multicenter study. In this study, 293 adult patients were included in the efficacy analysis. Patients ranged in age from 19 to 87 years old (mean age 55 years old) with 55% female and 45% male patients. Race was distributed as follows: 83% White, 12% African American, 8% Hispanic or Latino, and 4% other.

Patients were randomized to one of the following two colon preparations: 1) GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP [10 mg of bisacodyl tablets were given at noon on the day before colonoscopy followed by 2 liters of GaviLyte - H (after the first bowel movement or maximum of 6 hours)] at a rate of 8 ounces every 10 minutes and 2) a modified GaviLyte - H and bisacodyl delayed-release tablet, USP [containing a 5 mg bisacodyl tablet given at noon on the day before colonoscopy followed by 2 liters of GaviLyte - H (after the first bowel movement or maximum of 6 hours)] at a rate of 8 ounces every 10 minutes.

Patients were instructed to refrain from solid food and to have clear liquids on the day before colonoscopy. In addition, patients were instructed to consume nothing by mouth, except clear liquids, from the time the preparation was completed until after the colonoscopy was completed.

The primary efficacy endpoint was the proportion of patients with successful colon cleansing (assessed by the colonoscopists), see Table 2 below. Successful colon cleansing was defined as preparations that were graded excellent (no more than small bits of adherent feces/fluid) or good (small amounts of feces or fluid not interfering with the exam) by the colonoscopist.
