Orilissa Indication

Orilissa (Elagolix) belongs to the class of medications known as gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonists. It is used to treat the moderate-to-severe pain that occurs with Endometriosis.

Endometriosis is a painful condition where tissue that normally forms the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus. These tissues go through the same changes during the menstrual cycle as the tissue in the uterus. These changes are caused by the hormone estrogen. Orilissa (Elagolix) works by blocking the effects of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), which in turn, reduces the amount of estrogen produced by the body.

Orilissa (Elagolix) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Orilissa (Elagolix) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Orilissa (Elagolix) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Orilissa (Elagolix) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Orilissa (Elagolix), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Orilissa (Elagolix) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Orilissa (Elagolix) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Orilissa (Elagolix) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Orilissa Dosage

The recommended dose of Orilissa (Elagolix) is either 150 mg taken by mouth once a day or 200 mg taken by mouth two times a day. Your doctor will determine the best dose for you based on the severity of your endometriosis symptoms. Orilissa (Elagolix) may be taken with food or on an empty stomach and should be taken at the same time every day.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Orilissa (Elagolix) exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Orilissa (Elagolix) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Orilissa Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Orilissa (Elagolix).

Birth control: It is possible to become pregnant while taking Orilissa (Elagolix). Women taking Orilissa (Elagolix) should use effective methods of birth control that do not contain estrogen while taking Orilissa (Elagolix) and for at least 1 week after the last dose.

Bone health: Orilissa (Elagolix) can cause a decrease in the density of bones. Higher doses taken for longer periods of time increase the amount of bone lost. The lowest dose of Orilissa (Elagolix) to control the symptoms, taken for the shortest period of time, is less likely to cause these problems. If you have risk factors for osteoporosis, such as previous use of other medications that decrease bone density, metabolic bone disease, anorexia, long term use of alcohol or tobacco, or family history of osteoporosis, discuss with your doctor whether any special monitoring is needed.

Depression and suicidal behaviour: Orilissa (Elagolix) can cause mood swings and symptoms of depression. People taking Orilissa (Elagolix) may feel agitated (restless, anxious, aggressive, emotional, and feeling not like themselves), or they may want to hurt themselves or others. Symptoms of depression such as poor concentration, changes in weight, changes in sleep, and decreased interest in activities may also occur. If you experience these side effects or notice them in a family member who is taking Orilissa (Elagolix), contact your doctor immediately. Your doctor should closely monitor your emotional and behavioural changes while taking Orilissa (Elagolix).

If you have depression or a history of depression, discuss with your doctor how Orilissa (Elagolix) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Orilissa (Elagolix), and whether any special monitoring is needed.
Liver function: Liver disease or reduced liver function may cause Orilissa (Elagolix) to build up in the body, causing side effects. Orilissa (Elagolix) may also reduce liver function and can cause liver damage. If you have liver problems, discuss with your doctor how Orilissa (Elagolix) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Orilissa (Elagolix), and whether any special monitoring is needed. Your doctor may want to test your liver function regularly with blood tests while you are taking Orilissa (Elagolix).

If you experience symptoms of liver problems such as fatigue, feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain or swelling, and itchy skin, contact your doctor immediately.
