PharMerica has been selected as the exclusive Long Term Care pharmacy Provider for APOKYN.

APOKYN is an FDA-Approved treatment for acute, intermittent off episodes in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease (PD).

APOKYN can:

  • Be used reliably first thing in the morning1
  • Provide rapid relief and reliable return to an “on” state2,3
  • Help manage Parkinson’s disease symptoms by quickly ending off episodes2,3
  • Help patients walk, talk, and move around more easily2,3
  • Be used when needed, up to 5 times a day4

APOKYN is indicated for the acute, intermittent treatment of hypomobility, off episodes (end-of-dose wearing-off and unpredictable on-off episodes) associated with advanced Parkinson’s disease. APOKYN has been studied as an adjunct to other medications. The most common adverse events seen in controlled trials of APOKYN were yawning, drowsiness/somnolence, dyskinesias, dizziness/postural hypotension, rhinorrhea, nausea and/or vomiting, hallucinations/confusion, and edema/swelling of the extremities.

Q: Does your facility have advanced PD residents who experience off episodes while waiting for their oral medication to work? Do you believe these patients would more fully participate in daily activities if they could be administered a PD medication that returned them to an “on” state within 10 to 20 minutes?

A: If you answered yes, the solution may be APOKYN. We invite you to confer with a PharMerica pharmacist to learn more about how APOKYN may help treat advanced Parkinson’s disease (PD) residents with acute and intermittent off episodes.
