What is Kynmobi?

Levodopa is considered the gold standard for Parkinson’s disease treatment. But several years after starting the medication, most patients began experiencing fluctuations in their motor symptoms caused by a faster wearing off of the treatment’s effects. These “off episodes” can happen at any time of the day, and most patients experience more than one episode each day.

Kynmobi is an FDA-approved medication manufactured by Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. for patients above 18 years of age with the acute, intermittent treatment of “off episodes” in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Kynmobi sublingual film is a blue to green rectangular film with a white printed number identifying the strength (e.g., “10” is 10 mg).

What doses of Kynmobi are available?

Kynmobi is available in sublingual film tablet form, in the following doses: 10 mg, 15 mg, 20 mg, 25 mg, and 30 mg apomorphine hydrochloride.

Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

The dose range for Kynmobi is 10 mg to 30 mg per dose, administered sublingually, as needed, for the acute intermittent treatment of “off episodes”.

Doses should be separated by at least 2 hours. If a single dose of Kynmobi is ineffective for a particular “off episode”, a second dose should not be given for that “off episode”. The efficacy or safety of administering a second dose for a single “off episode” has not been studied.

Do not administer more than 5 doses per day. The maximum single dose of Kynmobi is 30 mg.

Kynmobi active ingredients

Kynmobi contains the active ingredient apomorphine hydrochloride.

  • Low blood pressure
  • Sleepiness
  • Mouth swelling, pain, or sores

In rare instances, Kynmobi can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Nausea and vomiting. Nausea is a common side effect of Kynmobi. Nausea and vomiting can happen with Kynmobi. Your healthcare provider may prescribe a medicine called an antiemetic, such as trimethobenzamide to help prevent nausea and vomiting. If trimethobenzamide is prescribed, talk to your healthcare provider about how long you should remain on this medicine
  • Sleepiness or falling asleep during the day. Sleepiness is a serious, and common side effect of Kynmobi. Some people treated with Kynmobi may get sleepy during the day or fall asleep without warning while doing everyday activities such as talking, eating, or driving a car
  • Dizziness. Dizziness is a serious, and common side effect of Kynmobi. Kynmobi may lower blood pressure and cause dizziness. Dizziness can happen when Kynmobi treatment is started or when the Kynmobi dose is increased. Do not get up too fast from sitting or after lying down, especially if you have been sitting or lying down for a long period of time
  • Mouth (oral) irritation. Mouth (oral) irritation is a common side effect of Kynmobi. You should call your healthcare provider if you develop any of these signs or symptoms:
    • redness
    • mouth sores (ulceration)
    • dryness of the mouth, lips, or tongue
    • swelling
    • pain
    • pain with swallowing
  • Falls. The changes that can happen with PD, and the effects of some PD medicines, can increase the risk of falling. Kynmobi may also increase your risk of falling
  • Hallucinations or psychotic-like behavior. Kynmobi may cause or make psychotic-like behavior worse including hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that are not real), confusion, excessive suspicion, aggressive behavior, agitation, delusional beliefs (believing things that are not real), and disorganized thinking.
  • Strong (intense) urges. Some people with PD have reported new or strong uncontrollable urges to gamble, increased sexual urges, increased urges to spend money (compulsive shopping), and other intense urges, while taking PD medicines, including Kynmobi. If you or your family members notice that you have strong urges, talk to your healthcare provider. The strong urges may go away if your Kynmobi dose is lowered or stopped
  • High fever and confusion. Kynmobi may cause a problem that can happen in people who suddenly lower their dose, stop using, or change their dose of Kynmobi. Symptoms include:
    • very high fever
    • confusion
    • stiff muscles
    • changes in breathing and heartbeat
  • Heart problems. If you have shortness of breath, fast heartbeat, chest pain, or feel like you are going to pass out (faint) while taking Kynmobi, call your healthcare provider or get emergency help right away
  • Tissue changes (fibrotic complications). Some people have had changes in the tissues of their pelvis, lungs, and heart valves when taking medicines called non-ergot-derived dopamine agonists like Kynmobi
  • Prolonged painful erections (priapism). Kynmobi may cause prolonged, painful erections in some people. If you have a prolonged and painful erection, you should call your healthcare provider or go to the nearest hospital emergency room right away
  • Kynmobi also contains a sulfite called sodium metabisulfite. Sulfites can cause severe, life-threatening allergic reactions in some people

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Kynmobi against your risk of side effects.

Get medical advice immediately if you have any serious side effects.

Kynmobi drug interactions

Kynmobi can interact with other medications. These include:

  • 5HT3 Antagonists. Based on reports of profound hypotension and loss of consciousness when subcutaneous apomorphine was administered with ondansetron, the concomitant use of Kynmobi with 5HT3 antagonists, including antiemetics (e.g., ondansetron, granisetron, palonosetron) and alosetron, is contraindicated
  • Antihypertensive Medications and Vasodilators. In a study of healthy subjects, concomitant administration of 0.4 mg sublingual nitroglycerin with subcutaneous apomorphine caused greater decreases in blood pressure than with subcutaneous apomorphine alone. Patients taking Kynmobi should lie down before and after taking sublingual nitroglycerin
  • Alcohol. In a study of healthy subjects, concomitant administration of high dose (0.6 g/kg) or low dose (0.3 g/kg) ethanol with subcutaneous apomorphine caused greater decreases in blood pressure than with subcutaneous apomorphine alone. Patients should avoid drinking alcohol after using Kynmobi
  • Dopamine Antagonists. Since Kynmobi is a dopamine agonist, it is possible that concomitant use of dopamine antagonists, such as the neuroleptics (e.g., phenothiazines, butyrophenones, thioxanthenes) or metoclopramide, may diminish the effectiveness of Kynmobi. Antiemetics with anti­-dopaminergic actions should be avoided. Patients with major psychotic disorders receiving neuroleptics should be treated with dopamine agonists only if the potential benefits outweigh the risks
  • Drugs Prolonging the QT/QTc Interval. Caution should be exercised when prescribing Kynmobi concomitantly with drugs that prolong the QT/QTc interval

This list is not exhaustive and other drugs may interact with Kynmobi. Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including:

  • prescription medicines
  • over-the-counter medicines
  • vitamins
  • herbal supplements

Kynmobi contraindications

Kynmobi is contraindicated in patients:

  • Using concomitant 5HT3 antagonists, including antiemetics (e.g., ondansetron,
    granisetron, dolasetron, palonosetron) and alosetron
  • With hypersensitivity/allergic reaction to apomorphine or to any of the ingredients of Kynmobi. Angioedema or anaphylaxis may occur

Tell your doctor about all your medical conditions including if you:

  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known if Kynmobi will harm your unborn baby
