PRODUCTSREQUESTS
Abtard®
  • Are there bioequivalence data with OxyContin? Fleche bas
  • Yes, data from twelve bioequivalence studies comparing Abtard with the reference product were submitted in support of the application for Marketing Authorisation.
  • How do I store Abtard® tablets? Fleche bas
  • We do not have information on the stability of Abtard® tablets outside of the original packaging. Abtard® tablets must be stored below 25°C in the original packaging to protect from moisture.
  • Is Abtard Monophasic or biphasic? Fleche bas
  • Abtard prolonged -release tablets are bioequivalent to OxyContin prolonged-release tablets and are biphasic, meaning that there is an initial absorption of approximately 40% of oxycodone from the tablet providing onset of analgesia within one hour in most patients, followed by a more controlled absorption, which determines the 12-hour duration or action.
  • How do I take Abtard® tablets? Fleche bas
  • Abtard® tablets must be taken as directed by your doctor or pharmacist. Abtard® tablets must be swallowed whole with a sufficient amount of liquid and not chewed.
  • Are the tablets film coated? Fleche bas
  • Yes they are
  • Are 2 x 60mg tablets bioequivalent to a single 120mg strength of OxyContin? Fleche bas
  • There are no bioequivalence studies for Abtard 2 x 60mg versus one single dose of 120mg of OxyContin.  It is a matter of clinical judgement for the prescriber to decide whether 2 x 60 mg tablets can be used.  What the bioequivalence studies prove is that Abtard 60mg is bioequivalent to OxyContin 60mg.  In practice if a retail pharmacist received a prescription for 120mg of OxyContin and only had the 60mg OxyContin available would they give 2 x 60mg tablets
