What is Recorlev?

Recorlev is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication developed by Strongbridge Biopharma (now acquired by Xeris Pharmaceuticals, Inc.) for endogenous Cushing’s syndrome.

FDA approval of Recorlev as a safe and effective treatment option for adult patients with endogenous Cushing’s syndrome is based on results from the open-label SONICS trial that showed Recorlev reduces and causes normalization of mean urinary-free cortisol concentrations without a dose increase. Results from the LOGICS trial confirmed findings from the SONIC trial.

The FDA has approved Recorlev, (Xeris Biopharma Holdings) for the treatment of endogenous hypercortisolemia (high cortisol levels) in adult patients with Cushing’s syndrome for whom surgery has not been curative or is not an option. Recorlev is not used for the treatment of fungal infections.

What doses of Recorlev are available?

Recorlev is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 150 mg.

The boxed warnings include hepatotoxicity, hypercortisolism, hypersensitivity reaction, QT prolongation, and risks related to decreased testosterone. Please read the prescribing information provided and always speak with your healthcare provider for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
