Warning

WARNING: LONG-TERM SAFETY OF TOPICAL CALCINEURIN INHIBITORS HAS NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED Although a causal relationship has not been established, rare cases of malignancy (e.g., skin and lymphoma) have been reported in patients treated with topical calcineurin inhibitors, including ELIDEL Cream, 1% [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1) ]. Therefore: Continuous long-term use of topical calcineurin inhibitors, including ELIDEL Cream, 1%, in any age group should be avoided, and application limited to areas of involvement with atopic dermatitis [see Dosage and Administration (2) , Warnings and Precautions (5.1) ]. ELIDEL Cream, 1% is not indicated for use in children less than 2 years of age [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1) , Use in Specific Populations (8.4) ]. WARNING: LONG-TERM SAFETY OF TOPICAL CALCINEURIN INHIBITORS HAS NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED See full prescribing information for complete boxed warning. Although a causal relationship has not been established, rare cases of malignancy (e.g., skin and lymphoma) have been reported in patients treated with topical calcineurin inhibitors, including ELIDEL Cream, 1%. (5.1) Therefore: Continuous long-term use of topical calcineurin inhibitors, including ELIDEL Cream, 1%, in any age group should be avoided, and application limited to areas of involvement with atopic dermatitis. (2, 5.1) ELIDEL Cream, 1% is not indicated for use in children less than 2 years of age. (1, 5.1, 8.4)

Indications And Usage

1 INDICATION AND USAGE ELIDEL® (pimecrolimus) Cream, 1% is indicated as second-line therapy for the short-term and non-continuous chronic treatment of mild to moderate atopic dermatitis in non-immunocompromised adults and children 2 years of age and older, who have failed to respond adequately to other topical prescription treatments, or when those treatments are not advisable. ELIDEL Cream, 1% is not indicated for use in children less than 2 years of age [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1), Use in Specific Populations (8.4) ]. ELIDEL Cream, 1% is a calcineurin inhibitor immunosuppressant indicated as second-line therapy for the short-term and non-continuous chronic treatment of mild to moderate atopic dermatitis in non-immunocompromised adults and children 2 years of age and older, who have failed to respond adequately to other topical prescription treatments, or when those treatments are not advisable.

Dosage Forms And Strengths

Cream, 1%. Each gram of ELIDEL Cream, 1% contains 10 mg of pimecrolimus in a whitish cream base. Cream, 1%. (3)

Contraindications

ELIDEL® (pimecrolimus) Cream, 1% is contraindicated in individuals with a history of hypersensitivity to pimecrolimus or any of the components of the cream. ELIDEL® (pimecrolimus) Cream 1% is contraindicated in individuals with a history of hypersensitivity to pimecrolimus or any of the components of the cream. (4, 6.2)

Warning and Cautions

Should not be used in immunocompromised adults and children, including patients on systemic immunosuppressive medications. (5.1) Avoid treatment on malignant or pre-malignant skin conditions, as these can present as dermatitis. (5.2) Should not be used in patients with Netherton’s Syndrome or skin diseases with a potential for increased systemic absorption. (5.2) 5.1 Risk of Immunosuppression Prolonged systemic use of calcineurin inhibitors for sustained immunosuppression in animal studies and transplant patients following systemic administration has been associated with an increased risk of infections, lymphomas, and skin malignancies. These risks are associated with the intensity and duration of immunosuppression. Based on this information and the mechanism of action, there is a concern about a potential risk with the use of topical calcineurin inhibitors, including ELIDEL Cream, 1%. While a causal relationship has not been established, rare cases of skin malignancy and lymphoma have been reported in patients treated with topical calcineurin inhibitors, including ELIDEL Cream, 1%. Therefore: Continuous long-term use of topical calcineurin inhibitors, including ELIDEL Cream, 1%, in any age group should be avoided, and application limited to areas of involvement with atopic dermatitis ELIDEL Cream, 1% is not indicated for use in children less than 2 years of age ELIDEL Cream, 1% should not be used in immunocompromised adults and children, including patients on systemic immunosuppressive medications. If signs and symptoms of atopic dermatitis do not improve within 6 weeks, patients should be re-examined by their healthcare provider and their diagnosis be confirmed. The safety of ELIDEL Cream, 1% has not been established beyond one year of non-continuous use. 5.2 Application to Malignant or Pre-malignant Skin Conditions The use of ELIDEL Cream, 1% should be avoided on malignant or pre-malignant skin conditions. Malignant or pre-malignant skin conditions, such as cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL), can present as dermatitis. ELIDEL Cream, 1% should not be used in patients with Netherton’s Syndrome or other skin diseases where there is the potential for increased systemic absorption of pimecrolimus. The safety of ELIDEL Cream, 1% has not been established in patients with generalized erythroderma. The use of ELIDEL Cream, 1% may cause local symptoms such as skin burning (burning sensation, stinging, soreness) or pruritus. Localized symptoms are most common during the first few days of ELIDEL Cream, 1% application and typically improve as the lesions of atopic dermatitis resolve [see Adverse Reactions (6.1) ]. 5.3 Bacterial and Viral Skin Infections Before commencing treatment with ELIDEL Cream, 1%, bacterial or viral infections at treatment sites should be resolved. Trials have not evaluated the safety and efficacy of ELIDEL Cream, 1% in the treatment of clinically infected atopic dermatitis. While patients with atopic dermatitis are predisposed to superficial skin infections including eczema herpeticum (Kaposi’s varicelliform eruption), treatment with ELIDEL Cream, 1% may be independently associated with an increased risk of varicella zoster virus infection (chicken pox or shingles), herpes simplex virus infection, or eczema herpeticum. In clinical trials, 15/1,544 (1%) cases of skin papilloma (warts) were observed in subjects using ELIDEL Cream, 1%. The youngest subject was age 2 and the oldest was age 12. In cases where there is worsening of skin papillomas or they do not respond to conventional therapy, discontinuation of ELIDEL Cream, 1% should be considered until complete resolution of the warts is achieved. 5.4 Patients with Lymphadenopathy In clinical trials, 14/1,544 (0.9%) cases of lymphadenopathy were reported while using ELIDEL Cream, 1%. These cases of lymphadenopathy were usually related to infections and noted to resolve upon appropriate antibiotic therapy. Of these 14 cases, the majority had either a clear etiology or were known to resolve. Patients who receive ELIDEL Cream, 1% and who develop lymphadenopathy should have the etiology of their lymphadenopathy investigated. In the absence of a clear etiology for the lymphadenopathy, or in the presence of acute infectious mononucleosis, ELIDEL Cream, 1% should be discontinued. Patients who develop lymphadenopathy should be monitored to ensure that the lymphadenopathy resolves. 5.5 Sun Exposure During the course of treatment, it is prudent for patients to minimize or avoid natural or artificial sunlight exposure, even while ELIDEL Cream, 1% is not on the skin. The potential effects of ELIDEL Cream, 1% on skin response to ultraviolet damage are not known. 5.6 Immunocompromised Patients The safety and efficacy of ELIDEL Cream, 1% in immunocompromised patients have not been studied.

Adverse Reactions

The most commonly reported adverse reactions (≥1%) were application site burning, headache, nasopharyngitis, cough, influenza, pyrexia and viral infection. (6.1) To report SUSPECTED ADVERSE REACTIONS, contact Valeant Pharmaceuticals North America LLC at 1-800-321-4576 or FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch. 6.1 Clinical Trials Experience Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice. No phototoxicity and no photoallergenicity were detected in clinical trials with 24 and 33 normal volunteers, respectively. In human dermal safety trials, ELIDEL (pimecrolimus) Cream, 1% did not induce contact sensitization or cumulative irritation. In a one-year safety trial in pediatric subjects age 2-17 years old involving sequential use of ELIDEL Cream, 1% and a topical corticosteroid, 43% of ELIDEL Cream, 1% treated subjects and 68% of vehicle-treated subjects used corticosteroids during the trial. Corticosteroids were used for more than 7 days by 34% of ELIDEL Cream, 1% treated subjects and 54% of vehicle-treated subjects. An increased incidence of impetigo, skin infection, superinfection (infected atopic dermatitis), rhinitis, and urticaria were found in the subjects that had used ELIDEL Cream, 1% and topical corticosteroid sequentially as compared to ELIDEL Cream, 1% alone. In 3 randomized, double-blind vehicle-controlled pediatric trials and one active-controlled adult trial, 843 and 328 subjects respectively, were treated with ELIDEL Cream, 1%. In these clinical trials, 48 (4%) of the 1,171 ELIDEL treated subjects and 13 (3%) of 408 vehicle-treated subjects discontinued therapy due to adverse events. Discontinuations for AEs were primarily due to application site reactions, and cutaneous infections. The most common application site reaction was application site burning, which occurred in 8%-26% of subjects treated with ELIDEL Cream, 1%. Table 1 depicts the incidence of adverse events pooled across the 2 identically designed 6-week trials with their open label extensions and the 1-year safety trial for pediatric subjects ages 2-17. Data from the adult active-controlled trial is also included in Table 1. Adverse events are listed regardless of relationship to trial drug.

Causality has not been established. 6.2 Postmarketing Experience The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of ELIDEL Cream, 1%. 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. General: Anaphylactic reactions, ocular irritation after application of the cream to the eye lids or near the eyes, angioneurotic edema, facial edema, skin flushing associated with alcohol use, skin discoloration. Hematology/Oncology: Lymphomas, basal cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma.

Drug Interactions

Potential interactions between ELIDEL Cream, 1% and other drugs, including immunizations, have not been systematically evaluated. Due to low blood levels of pimecrolimus detected in some patients after topical application, systemic drug interactions are not expected, but cannot be ruled out. The concomitant administration of known CYP3A family of inhibitors in patients with widespread and/or erythrodermic disease should be done with caution. Some examples of such drugs are erythromycin, itraconazole, ketoconazole, fluconazole, calcium channel blockers and cimetidine.

Use In Specific Populations

8.1 Pregnancy Pregnancy Category C There are no adequate and well-controlled studies with ELIDEL Cream, 1% in pregnant women. Therefore, ELIDEL Cream, 1% should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. In dermal embryofetal developmental studies, no maternal or fetal toxicity was observed up to the highest practicable doses tested, 10 mg/kg/day (1% pimecrolimus cream) in rats (0.14× MRHD based on body surface area) and 10 mg/kg/day (1% pimecrolimus cream) in rabbits (0.65× MRHD based on AUC comparisons). The 1% pimecrolimus cream was administered topically for 6 hours/day during the period of organogenesis in rats and rabbits (gestational days 6-21 in rats and gestational days 6-20 in rabbits). A second dermal embryofetal development study was conducted in rats using pimecrolimus cream applied dermally to pregnant rats (1 g cream/kg body weight of 0.2%, 0.6% and 1.0% pimecrolimus cream) from gestation day 6 to 17 at doses of 2, 6, and 10 mg/kg/day with daily exposure of approximately 22 hours. No maternal, reproductive, or embryo-fetal toxicity attributable to pimecrolimus was noted at 10 mg/kg/day (0.66× MRHD based on AUC comparisons), the highest dose evaluated in this study. No teratogenicity was noted in this study at any dose. A combined oral fertility and embryofetal developmental study was conducted in rats and an oral embryofetal developmental study was conducted in rabbits. Pimecrolimus was administered during the period of organogenesis (2 weeks prior to mating until gestational day 16 in rats, gestational days 6-18 in rabbits) up to dose levels of 45 mg/kg/day in rats and 20 mg/kg/day in rabbits. In the absence of maternal toxicity, indicators of embryofetal toxicity (post-implantation loss and reduction in litter size) were noted at 45 mg/kg/day (38× MRHD based on AUC comparisons) in the oral fertility and embryofetal developmental study conducted in rats. No malformations in the fetuses were noted at 45 mg/kg/day (38× MRHD based on AUC comparisons) in this study. No maternal toxicity, embryotoxicity or teratogenicity were noted in the oral rabbit embryofetal developmental toxicity study at 20 mg/kg/day (3.9× MRHD based on AUC comparisons), which was the highest dose tested in this study. A second oral embryofetal development study was conducted in rats. Pimecrolimus was administered during the period of organogenesis (gestational days 6 – 17) at doses of 2, 10 and 45 mg/kg/day. Maternal toxicity, embryolethality and fetotoxicity were noted at 45 mg/kg/day (271× MRHD based on AUC comparisons). A slight increase in skeletal variations that were indicative of delayed skeletal ossification was also noted at this dose. No maternal toxicity, embryolethality or fetotoxicity were noted at 10 mg/kg/day (16× MRHD based on AUC comparisons). No teratogenicity was noted in this study at any dose. A second oral embryofetal development study was conducted in rabbits. Pimecrolimus was administered during the period of organogenesis (gestational days 7 – 20) at doses of 2, 6 and 20 mg/kg/day. Maternal toxicity, embryotoxicity and fetotoxicity were noted at 20 mg/kg/day (12× MRHD based on AUC comparisons). A slight increase in skeletal variations that were indicative of delayed skeletal ossification was also noted at this dose. No maternal toxicity, embryotoxicity or fetotoxicity were noted at 6 mg/kg/day (5× MRHD based on AUC comparisons). No teratogenicity was noted in this study at any dose. An oral peri- and post-natal developmental study was conducted in rats. Pimecrolimus was administered from gestational day 6 through lactational day 21 up to a dose level of 40 mg/kg/day. Only 2 of 22 females delivered live pups at the highest dose of 40 mg/kg/day. Postnatal survival, development of the F1 generation, their subsequent maturation and fertility were not affected at 10 mg/kg/day (12× MRHD based on AUC comparisons), the highest dose evaluated in this study. Pimecrolimus was transferred across the placenta in oral rat and rabbit embryofetal developmental studies. 8.3 Nursing Mothers It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in nursing infants from pimecrolimus, a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or to discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother. 8.4 Pediatric Use ELIDEL Cream, 1% is not indicated for use in children less than 2 years of age. The long-term safety and effects of ELIDEL Cream, 1% on the developing immune system are unknown. Three Phase 3 pediatric trials were conducted involving 1,114 subjects 2-17 years of age. Two trials were 6-week randomized vehicle-controlled trials with a 20-week open-label phase and one was a vehicle-controlled (up to 1 year) safety trial with the option for sequential topical corticosteroid use. Of these subjects 542 (49%) were 2-6 years of age. In the short-term trials, 11% of ELIDEL subjects did not complete these trials and 1.5% of ELIDEL subjects discontinued due to adverse events. In the one-year trial, 32% of ELIDEL subjects did not complete this trial and 3% of ELIDEL subjects discontinued due to adverse events. Most discontinuations were due to unsatisfactory therapeutic effect. The most common local adverse event in the short-term trials of ELIDEL Cream, 1% in pediatric subjects ages 2-17 was application site burning (10% vs. 13% vehicle); the incidence in the long-term trial was 9% ELIDEL vs. 7% vehicle [see Adverse Reactions (6.1) ]. Adverse events that were more frequent (>5%) in subjects treated with ELIDEL Cream, 1% compared to vehicle were headache (14% vs. 9%) in the short-term trial. Nasopharyngitis (26% vs. 21%), influenza (13% vs. 4%), pharyngitis (8% vs. 3%), viral infection (7% vs. 1%), pyrexia (13% vs. 5%), cough (16% vs. 11%), and headache (25% vs. 16%) were increased over vehicle in the 1-year safety trial [see Adverse Reactions (6.1) ]. In 843 subjects ages 2-17 years treated with ELIDEL Cream, 1%, 9 (0.8%) developed eczema herpeticum (5 on ELIDEL Cream, 1% alone and 4 on ELIDEL Cream, 1% used in sequence with corticosteroids). In 211 subjects on vehicle alone, there were no cases of eczema herpeticum. The majority of adverse events were mild to moderate in severity. Two Phase 3 trials were conducted involving 436 infants age 3 months-23 months. One 6-week randomized vehicle-controlled trial with a 20-week open-label phase and one safety trial, up to one year, were conducted. In the 6-week trial, 11% of ELIDEL and 48% of vehicle subjects did not complete this trial; no subject in either group discontinued due to adverse events. Infants on ELIDEL Cream, 1% had an increased incidence of some adverse events compared to vehicle. In the 6-week vehicle-controlled trial these adverse events included pyrexia (32% vs. 13% vehicle), URI (24% vs. 14%), nasopharyngitis (15% vs. 8%), gastroenteritis (7% vs. 3%), otitis media (4% vs. 0%), and diarrhea (8% vs. 0%). In the open-label phase of the trial, for infants who switched to ELIDEL Cream, 1% from vehicle, the incidence of the above-cited adverse events approached or equaled the incidence of those subjects who remained on ELIDEL Cream, 1%. In the 6 month safety data, 16% of ELIDEL and 35% of vehicle subjects discontinued early and 1.5% of ELIDEL and 0% of vehicle subjects discontinued due to adverse events. Infants on ELIDEL Cream, 1% had a greater incidence of some adverse events as compared to vehicle. These included pyrexia (30% vs. 20%), URI (21% vs. 17%), cough (15% vs. 9%), hypersensitivity (8% vs. 2%), teething (27% vs. 22%), vomiting (9% vs. 4%), rhinitis (13% vs. 9%), viral rash (4% vs. 0%), rhinorrhea (4% vs. 0%), and wheezing (4% vs. 0%). The systemic exposure to pimecrolimus from ELIDEL (pimecrolimus) Cream, 1% was investigated in 28 pediatric subjects with atopic dermatitis (20%-80% BSA involvement) between the ages of 8 months-14 yrs. Following twice daily application for three weeks, blood concentrations of pimecrolimus were <2 ng/mL with 60% (96/161) of the blood samples having blood concentration below the limit of quantification (0.5 ng/mL). However, more children (23 children out of the total 28 children investigated) had at least one detectable blood level as compared to the adults (12 adults out of the total 52 adults investigated) over a 3-week treatment period. Due to the erratic nature of the blood levels observed, no correlation could be made between amount of cream, degree of BSA involvement, and blood concentrations. In general, the blood concentrations measured in adult atopic dermatitis subjects were comparable to those seen in the pediatric population. In a second group of 30 pediatric subjects aged 3-23 months with 10%-92% BSA involvement, following twice daily application for three weeks, blood concentrations of pimecrolimus were <2.6 ng/mL with 65% (75/116) of the blood samples having blood concentration below 0.5 ng/mL, and 27% (31/116) below the limit of quantification (0.1 ng/mL) for these trials. Overall, a higher proportion of detectable blood levels was seen in the pediatric subject population as compared to adult population. This increase in the absolute number of positive blood levels may be due to the larger surface area to body mass ratio seen in these younger subjects. In addition, a higher incidence of upper respiratory symptoms/infections was also seen relative to the older age group in the PK trials. At this time, a causal relationship between these findings and ELIDEL use cannot be ruled out. 8.5 Geriatric Use Nine (9) subjects ≥65 years old received ELIDEL Cream, 1% in Phase 3 trials. Clinical trials of ELIDEL Cream, 1% did not include sufficient numbers of subjects aged 65 and over to assess efficacy and safety.

A few weeks ago I printed out one of your cards and used it on one of my medications because my co-pay went up and to my surprise instead of paying a $45.00 co-pay through my insurance, I ended up paying only $17.00 by just running it through the discount card! Now I will be comparing prices!" Steve
SAVINGS OF 70%! "I went to a chain pharmacy today and wanted to fill a prescription and not run it through my insurance.They quoted me $164.00 for a 90 day generic supply, I asked them to double check and it was the best they could do. I came home, checked your online price, registered and had a card in 15 seconds. Went back, and the prescription was $16.92!"

I was able to buy the Melphalan chemotherapy drug for $34 less than the last 2 months, since we started treatment! Thanks so much!" Mary L.
SAVINGS OF 70%! "Wow! I can`t believe this actually worked. I have no insurance at this time and have to pay
I lost my insurance coverage and went online seeking help and found this CARD! It worked and saved me money $$$$$ very 1st time. There are others out there but with less coverage and a smaller list of drugs or they charge you a monthly fee. I am so happy I take 3 prescriptions a month forever and at times more and I will save over 78% as I figured it out, and that is great tell everybody you know as I am doing."
