The clinical benefit of the decrease in opioid consumption has not been demonstrated.
EXPAREL is indicated for administration into the surgical site to produce postsurgical analgesia.
Important Safety Information
EXPAREL is contraindicated in obstetrical paracervical block anesthesia. EXPAREL has not been studied for use
in patients younger than 18 years of age. Non-bupivacaine-based local anesthetics, including lidocaine, may
cause an immediate release of bupivacaine from EXPAREL if administered together locally. The administration
of EXPAREL may follow the administration of lidocaine after a delay of 20 minutes or more. Formulations of
bupivacaine other than EXPAREL should not be administered within 96 hours following administration of EXPAREL.
Monitoring of cardiovascular and neurological status as well as vital signs should be performed during and after
injection of EXPAREL as with other local anesthetic products. Because amide-type local anesthetics, such as
bupivacaine, are metabolized by the liver, EXPAREL should be used cautiously in patients with hepatic disease.
Patients with severe hepatic disease, because of their inability to metabolize local anesthetics normally, are at
a greater risk of developing toxic plasma concentrations. In clinical trials, the most common adverse reactions
(incidence ≥10%) following EXPAREL administration were nausea, constipation, and vomiting.
