We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Sunosi, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Sunosi assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll.

What is Sunosi?

Sunosi (solriamfetol) is an FDA approved medication manufactured by Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Inc for patients above 18 years of age used to improve wakefulness and treat sleep disorders in adults with excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) due to narcolepsy (with or without cataplexy)or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Sleepiness can be assessed using the Epworth Sleepiness Scale which is a common test used by doctors to help assess a person’s level of tiredness.

Sunosi does not treat the underlying cause of obstructive sleep apnea and does not take the place of any device prescribed for obstructive sleep apnea, such as a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. It is important that you continue to use these treatments as prescribed by your healthcare provider.

Sunosi belongs to a class of drugs called dopamine-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors.

Sunosi is thought to work on two areas in the brain that help keep you awake during the day. Two natural chemicals in the brain—dopamine, and norepinephrine—help you stay awake. Sunosi is thought to improve wakefulness by increasing the activity of these natural chemicals.

In clinical studies, at Week 12, 150 mg of Sunosi for narcolepsy patients and all doses for OSA patients demonstrated improvements in wakefulness compared to placebo as assessed in test sessions 1 (approximately one-hour post-dose) through 5 (approximately nine hours post-dose) of the maintenance of wakefulness test (MWT).

What doses of Sunosi are available?

Sunosi is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 75mg (functionally scored) and 150mg.

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

Sunosi active ingredients

Sunosi contains the active drug solriamfetol.

Sunosi side effects

The most common side effects caused by Sunosi include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Decreased appetite
  • Anxiety
  • Trouble sleeping or ongoing sleep problems
  • Chest pain

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

  • Increased blood pressure and heart rate. Sunosi can cause blood pressure and heart rate increases that can increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, heart failure, and death. Your doctor should check your blood pressure before, and during, treatment with Sunosi. Your doctor may decrease your dose or tell you to stop taking Sunosi if you develop high blood pressure that does not go away during treatment with Sunosi

Call your doctor for advice about side effects. Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Sunosi against your risk of side effects.

Sunosi is available in 75 mg and 150 mg tablets and is a federally controlled substance (CIV) because it contains solriamfetol that can be a target for people who abuse prescription medicines or street drugs. Keep Sunosi in a safe place to protect it from theft. Never give or sell your Sunosi to anyone else because it may cause death or harm them and it is against the law. Tell your doctor if you have ever abused or been dependent on alcohol, prescription medicines, or street drugs.

Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Sunosi to healthcare professionals or the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
