Hydroxyprogesterone Caproate Injection USP 2 ml

Therapeutic Class:

Dosage Forms:

Brand Name: Pogastin

How it works?

Hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection is a progestin indicated to reduce the risk of preterm birth in women with a singleton pregnancy who have a history of singleton spontaneous preterm birth. The effectiveness of hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection is based on improvement in the proportion of women who delivered < 37 weeks of gestation. There are no controlled trials demonstrating a direct clinical benefit, such as improvement in neonatal mortality and morbidity.
Limitation of use: While there are many risk factors for preterm birth, safety and efficacy of hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection has been demonstrated only in women with a prior spontaneous singleton preterm birth. It is not intended for use in women with multiple gestations or other risk factors for preterm birth.

Administer intramuscularly at a dose of 250 mg (1 ml) once weekly (every 7 days) by a healthcare provider
Begin treatment between 16 weeks, 0 days and 20 weeks, 6 days of gestation
Continue administration once weekly until week 37 (through 36 weeks, 6 days) of gestation or delivery, whichever occurs first

The most common adverse reactions reported in ≥ 2% of subjects and at a higher rate in the Pogastin group than in the control group were injection site reactions (pain [35%], swelling [17%], pruritus [6%], nodule [5%]), urticaria (12%), pruritus (8%), nausea (6%) and diarrhea (2%).

Postmarketing Experience
The following adverse reactions have been identified during postapproval use of Pogastin. 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.
Body as a whole: Local injection site reactions (including erythema, urticaria, rash, irritation, hypersensitivity, warmth); fatigue; fever; hot flashes/flushes
Digestive disorders: Vomiting
Infections: Urinary tract infection
Nervous system disorders: Headache, dizziness
Pregnancy, puerperium and perinatal conditions: Cervical incompetence, premature rupture of membranes
Reproductive system and breast disorders: Cervical dilation, shortened cervix
Respiratory disorders: Dyspnea, chest discomfort

Thromboembolic Disorders
Discontinue Pogastin if an arterial or deep venous thrombotic or thromboembolic event occurs.

Allergic Reactions
Allergic reactions, including urticaria, pruritus and angioedema, have been reported with use of Pogastin. Consider discontinuing the drug if such reactions occur.

Decrease in Glucose Tolerance
A decrease in glucose tolerance has been observed in some patients on progestin treatment. The mechanism of this decrease is not known. Carefully monitor prediabetic and diabetic women while they are receiving Pogastin.

Fluid Retention
Because progestational drugs may cause some degree of fluid retention, carefully monitor women with conditions that might be influenced by this effect (e.g., preeclampsia, epilepsy, migraine, asthma, cardiac or renal dysfunction).

Monitor women who have a history of clinical depression and discontinue Pogastin if clinical depression recurs.

Carefully monitor women who develop jaundice while receiving Pogastin and consider whether the benefit of use warrants continuation.

Carefully monitor women who develop hypertension while receiving Pogastin and consider whether the benefit of use warrants continuation.
