Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to investigate any difference in the extent and rate of absorption of doxylamine between the test (investigational medicinal product [IMP]) and reference products that could impact the bioavailability of the medication when administered under fasting conditions.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Bioavailability Drug: doxylamine succinate 10 mg/pyridoxine hydrochloride 10 mg combination Drug: Diclegis (Registered Trademark) Phase 1

Detailed Description:

The objective of the study is to compare the bioavailability of doxylamine between two oral delayed-release formulations containing the fixed-dose combination of doxylamine succinate 10 milligrams (mg)/pyridoxine hydrochloride 10 mg

  • A product of Tecnandina, S.A. TENSA (Test) and
  • Diclegis (Registered Trademark), a product of Duchesnay Inc.(Reference)

after an administration of a single dose equivalent to doxylamine succinate 20 mg and pyridoxine hydrochloride 20 mg (i.e., 2 tablets) under fasting conditions to determine bioequivalence in terms of rate and extent of absorption.

Furthermore, the tolerability of the fixed-dose combination doxylamine succinate 10 mg/pyridoxine hydrochloride 10 mg will be evaluated in healthy women in a dose equivalent to doxylamine succinate 20 mg and pyridoxine hydrochloride 20 mg.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area under the plasma concentration curve from the administration until the time t (AUC0-t) of doxylamine [ Time Frame: From pre-dose to 48 hours post-dose ]
    19 plasma samples will be collected from pre-dose to 48 hours post-dose. Doxylamine plasma concentrations will be determined using a high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry bioanalytical assay.

  2. Maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) of doxylamine [ Time Frame: From pre-dose to 48 hours post-dose ]
    19 plasma samples will be collected from pre-dose to 48 hours post-dose. Doxylamine plasma concentrations will be determined using a high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry bioanalytical assay.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area under the plasma concentration curve from 0 to infinity (AUC0-inf) of doxylamine [ Time Frame: From pre-dose to 48 hours post-dose ]
    19 plasma samples will be collected from pre-dose to 48 hours post-dose. Doxylamine plasma concentrations will be determined using a high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry bioanalytical assay.

  2. Time to maximum plasma concentration (Tmax) for doxylamine [ Time Frame: From pre-dose to 48 hours post-dose ]
    19 plasma samples will be collected from pre-dose to 48 hours post-dose. Doxylamine plasma concentrations will be determined using a high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry bioanalytical assay. Tmax will be calculated based on Cmax data for doxylamine.
