Our Commitment to Improving Lives

Paying for treatment shouldn’t get in the way of your patient’s health. That’s why the Horizon By Your Side team is diligent in exploring all options to help your patient.

  • Does your patient have commercial insurance, like a preferred provider organization (PPO) or health maintenance organization (HMO)? If so, they may qualify for a lower co-pay*
  • Does your patient have government insurance, such as Medicare, Medicare Part D, Medicaid, Medigap, VA, CHAMPUS, Department of Defense, TRICARE, or any state, patient foundation, or other pharmaceutical program? If so, there may be additional support for them
  • Once your treatment plan is set in place, the Patient Access Liaison can help talk with your patient about the insurance approval process and what the potential out-of-pocket treatment costs may be

Through our team’s knowledge of how insurance companies work and our understanding of your specific benefits, our Patient Access Liaisons can help your patient understand the insurance process by walking them through coverage and possible financial assistance options.

Shared Responsibility

As an industry partner, we have limitations that we must respect. We cannot guarantee access or reimbursement for our medicines; however, we can educate you and your staff about gaining access to the medicine and various patient financial support programs. Similarly, we cannot provide medical advice to your patient about the medicines you prescribe or act as an extension of—or substitution for—your staff.

Together, we can advocate for your patient to gain access to the medicines you believe will improve their lives.

INDICATION and IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

INDICATION

RAVICTI (glycerol phenylbutyrate) Oral Liquid is indicated for use as a nitrogen-binding agent for chronic management of patients with urea cycle disorders (UCDs) who cannot be managed by dietary protein restriction and/or supplementation alone. RAVICTI must be used with dietary protein restriction and, in some cases, dietary supplements (e.g. essential amino acids, arginine, citrulline, protein-free calorie supplements).

LIMITATIONS OF USE

  • RAVICTI is not indicated for the treatment of acute hyperammonemia in patients with UCDs because more rapidly acting interventions are essential to reduce plasma ammonia levels.
  • The safety and efficacy of RAVICTI for the treatment of N-acetylglutamate synthase (NAGS) deficiency has not been established.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

CONTRAINDICATIONS

  • Patients with known hypersensitivity to phenylbutyrate: Reactions include wheezing, dyspnea, coughing, hypotension, flushing, nausea, and rash.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

  • Neurotoxicity: Phenylacetate (PAA), the major metabolite of RAVICTI, may be toxic at levels of 500 micrograms/mL or greater. If symptoms of vomiting, nausea, headache, somnolence, or confusion, are present in the absence of high ammonia or other intercurrent illness which explains these symptoms, consider the potential for PAA neurotoxicity which may need reduction in the RAVICTI dosage.
  • Pancreatic Insufficiency or Intestinal Malabsorption: Low or absent pancreatic enzymes or intestinal disease resulting in fat malabsorption may result in reduced or absent digestion of RAVICTI and/or absorption of phenylbutyrate and reduced control of plasma ammonia. Monitor ammonia levels closely.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

The most common adverse reactions reported in clinical trials (at least 10% of patients) were:

  • Adult patients: diarrhea, flatulence, and headache occurred during 4-week treatment (n=45) with RAVICTI; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite, dizziness, headache, and fatigue occurred during 12-month treatment (n=51) with RAVICTI.
  • Pediatric patients ages 2 to 17 years: upper abdominal pain, rash, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite, and headache occurred during 12-month treatment (n=26) with RAVICTI.
  • Pediatric patients ages 2 months to less than 2 years: neutropenia, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, pyrexia, hypophagia, cough, nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, rash, and papule occurred during 12-month treatment (n=17) with RAVICTI.
  • Pediatric patients less than 2 months of age: vomiting, gastroesophageal reflux, increased hepatic enzymes, feeding disorder (decreased appetite, hypophagia), anemia, cough, dehydration, metabolic acidosis, thrombocytosis, thrombocytopenia, neutropenia, lymphocytosis, diarrhea, flatulence, constipation, pyrexia, lethargy, and irritability/agitation occurred during 24-month treatment (n=16) with RAVICTI.

DRUG INTERACTIONS

  • Corticosteroids, valproic acid, or haloperidol may increase plasma ammonia level. Monitor ammonia levels closely.
  • Probenecid may affect renal excretion of metabolites of RAVICTI, including phenylacetylglutamine (PAGN) and PAA.
  • CYP3A4 substrates with narrow therapeutic index (e.g., alfentanil, quinidine, cyclosporine): RAVICTI may decrease exposure to the concomitant drug.
  • Midazolam: Use of RAVICTI decreased exposure of midazolam with concomitant use.

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

  • Pregnancy: RAVICTI should be used with caution in patients who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. Based on animal data, RAVICTI may cause fetal harm. Report pregnancies to Horizon at 1‐866‐479‐6742.
  • Lactation: breastfeeding is not recommended during treatment with RAVICTI. There are no data on the presence of RAVICTI in human milk, the effects on the breastfed infant, nor the effects on milk production.
