Thông tin thuốc gốc
Chỉ định và Liều dùng
Tardive dyskinesia
Adult: Initially, 40 mg once daily for 1 week, increased to 80 mg once daily. Consider continuation of 40 mg once daily dose based on patient response and tolerability.
Nhóm bệnh nhân đặc biệt
Patients taking strong CYP3A4 inhibitors (e.g. itraconazole, ketoconazole, clarithromycin): Reduce maintenance dose to 40 mg once daily.

Patients taking strong CYP3A4 inducers (e.g. carbamazepine, phenytoin, rifampicin): Not recommended.

Patients taking strong CYP2D6 inhibitors (e.g. paroxetine, fluoxetine, quinidine): Consider dose reduction based on patient tolerability.


Valbenazine is metabolised to its active metabolite, (+)-α-HTBZ, via hydrolysis of valine ester. (+)-α-HTBZ is further metabolised in part by CYP2D6.

Patients who are CYP2D6 poor metabolisers or concomitantly taking strong CYP2D6 inhibitors may have increased serum concentrations of valbenazine and (+)-α-HTBZ active metabolite thereby may increase risk of adverse effects (e.g. QT prolongation). The FDA-approved drug label recommends considering dose reduction for patients who are known CYP2D6 poor metabolisers based on tolerability.

Thông tin tư vấn bệnh nhân
This drug may cause somnolence, if affected, do not drive or operate machinery.
Chỉ số theo dõi
Monitor for signs of involuntary movement or Parkinson-like symptoms. Perform ECG prior to increasing dose in patient at risk of QT prolongation.
Tương tác
Increased risk of adverse effects with strong inhibitors of CYP2D6 (e.g. paroxetine, fluoxetine, quinidine) or CYP3A4 (e.g. itraconazole, ketoconazole, clarithromycin). May reduce efficacy of valbenazine with strong CYP3A4 inducers (e.g. rifampicin, carbamazepine, phenytoin). Increased serum concentration of P-glycoprotein substrates (e.g. digoxin).
Potentially Fatal: Increased risk of adverse effects (e.g. serotonin syndrome) of MAOIs (e.g. isocarboxazid, phenelzine, selegiline).
Tương tác với thức ăn
Decreased serum concentrations of valbenazine with St. John’s wort and high-fat food.
Tác dụng
Mechanism of Action: Valbenazine reversibly inhibits the vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2) which regulates the uptake of monoamine from the cytoplasm to the synaptic vesicle for storage and release. It has no binding affinity for VMAT1 nor the dopaminergic, serotonergic, adrenergic, histaminergic or muscarinic receptors.
Absorption: Bioavailability: Approx 49%. Time to peak plasma concentrations: 0.5-1 hour (valbenazine); 4-8 hours (active metabolite). Decreased serum concentration with high fat meal.
Distribution: Volume of distribution: 92 L. Plasma protein binding: >99% (valbenazine); approx 64% (active metabolite).
Metabolism: Extensively metabolised via hydrolysis of valine ester to active metabolite, (+)-α-dihydroxytetrabenazine [(+)-α-HTBZ] and via oxidative metabolism by CYP3A4/5 to mono-oxidised valbenazine and other minor metabolites. (+)-α-HTBZ is further metabolised in part by CYP2D6.
Excretion: Via urine (approx 60%, mainly as inactive metabolites; <2% as unchanged drug or active metabolite); via faeces (30%, mainly as inactive metabolites; <2% as unchanged drug or active metabolite). Elimination half-life: 15-22 hours.
