Breastfeeding: There is no information about Epidiolex or its breakdown products being present in breastmilk or the effects on milk production. With most seizure medicines, the amount of medicine the baby is exposed to while breastfeeding is less than during pregnancy. If you want to breastfeed your baby, check with your health care team about the best approach.

Allergic or hypersensitivity reactions: Tell your provider if you develop any redness, itching, rash, or swelling after starting Epidiolex. These may need treatment or the drug may be stopped.

Some symptoms of liver problems may include:

How To Store:

Blood tests for liver function, called serum transaminases (ALT and AST) and total bilirubin levels should be done in each person before starting Epidiolex.

Since Epidiolex may make some people sleepy, do not drive, use heavy equipment or do other dangerous activities until you know how Epidiolex affects you. People who are not seizure free also may not drive due to legal restrictions. Talk to your doctor about your seizure control, medicines, and ability to drive.

Epidiolex has not been tested in older adults, thus the use of this medicine in seniors is unknown.

Epidiolex could affect some other medicines that are broken down or metabolized by the liver.

A TEAE was defined as an adverse event with an onset date on or after the first dose of IMP. If an adverse event (AE) had a partial onset date and it was unclear from the partial date (or the stop date) whether the AE started prior to or following the first dose of IMP then the AE was considered a TEAE. The number of participants who experienced 1 or more severe TEAEs after screening up to Day 71.

All participants (in the GWP42003-P and Placebo treatment groups) were on a stable dose of CLB at Baseline, administered either once or twice daily as per the physician’s preferred CLB dosing regimen for each participant, and continued taking CLB, as an IMP, for the duration of this study.

The Cmax of CLB and its primary metabolite N-desmethylclobazam (N-CLB) was measured on Day 1 (before beginning GWP42003-P treatment; participants were taking CLB only) and Day 33 (following 21 days of GWP42003-P or placebo maintenance; participants were taking CLB and GWP42003-P or CLB and placebo). PK samples were taken at time points relative to the morning dose of CLB, as follows: Predose, 15 minutes (min), 30 min, 1 hour (h), 1.5 h, 2 h, 4 h, 6 h, 12 h, and 24 h.

Participants received GWP42003-P 20 milligrams [mg]/kilogram [kg]/day orally, twice daily immediately after their clobazam (CLB) dose. Participants titrated GWP42003-P to 20 mg/kg/day over 10 days and remained at this dose for the 21-day treatment period. Participants who then did not enter the open-label extension (OLE) or withdrew early had a 10-day taper (10% per day) period. Participants who transferred to the OLE (still blinded at that stage) tapered off their GWP42003-P treatment by reducing their maintenance dose by 10% per day and concomitantly titrating GWP42003-P for the OLE.

One participant in the placebo group was excluded from the PK set because placebo was administered on Day 1, after predose sampling. Six participants in the GWP42003-P group were excluded from the PK set because of GWP42003-P and/or CLB dose modification, discontinuation of IMP, discontinuation from trial, or administration of incorrect IMP dose.

One participant in the placebo group was excluded from the PK set because placebo was administered on Day 1, after predose sampling.
