INDICATION

ARESTIN® (minocycline HCl) Microspheres, 1 mg is indicated as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP) procedures for reduction of pocket depth in patients with adult periodontitis. ARESTIN® may be used as part of a periodontal maintenance program, which includes good oral hygiene and SRP.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

  • ARESTIN® is contraindicated in any patient who has a known sensitivity to minocycline or tetracyclines. Hypersensitivity reactions have been reported with its use. Post-marketing cases of anaphylaxis and serious skin reactions such as Stevens Johnson syndrome and erythema multiforme have been reported with oral minocycline, as well as acute photosensitivity reactions.
  • THE USE OF DRUGS OF THE TETRACYCLINE CLASS DURING TOOTH DEVELOPMENT MAY CAUSE PERMANENT DISCOLORATION OF THE TEETH, AND THEREFORE SHOULD NOT BE USED IN CHILDREN OR IN PREGNANT OR NURSING WOMEN.
  • Tetracyclines, including oral minocycline, have been associated with development of autoimmune syndromes. In symptomatic patients, diagnostic tests should be performed and ARESTIN® treatment discontinued.
  • The use of ARESTIN® in an acutely abscessed periodontal pocket or for use in the regeneration of alveolar bone has not been studied.
  • The safety and effectiveness of ARESTIN® has not been established in immunocompromised patients or in those with coexistent oral candidiasis. Use with caution if there is a predisposition to oral candidiasis.
  • In clinical trials, the most frequently reported nondental treatment-emergent adverse events were headache, infection, flu syndrome, and pain.
