6.1 Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

The safety of UBRELVY was evaluated in 3,624 subjects who received at least one dose of UBRELVY. In two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 3 trials in adult patients with migraine (Studies 1 and 2), a total of 1,439 patients received UBRELVY 50 mg or 100 mg [see Clinical Studies ( 14)] . Of the UBRELVY-treated patients in these 2 studies, approximately 89% were female, 82% were White, 15% were Black, and 17% were of Hispanic or Latino ethnicity. The mean age at study entry was 41 years (range of 18-75 years).

Long-term safety was assessed in 813 patients, dosing intermittently for up to 1 year in an open-label extension study. Patients were permitted to treat up to 8 migraines per month with UBRELVY. Of these 813 patients, 421 patients were exposed to 50 mg or 100 mg for at least 6 months, and 364 patients were exposed to these doses for at least one year, all of whom treated at least two migraine attacks per month, on average. In that study, 2.5% of patients were withdrawn from UBRELVY because of an adverse reaction. The most common adverse reaction resulting in discontinuation in the long-term safety study was nausea.

Adverse reactions in Studies 1 and 2 are shown in Table 2.
