AFINITOR

How to take AFINITOR

AFINITOR is an oral tablet you take once daily, consistently with or consistently without food. AFINITOR should be taken at the same time every day. You may take AFINITOR at home or at any other place that works for you. This may eliminate the need to receive treatment in your doctor's office.

 

You should take AFINITOR exactly as your health care provider tells you. Your health care provider may change your dose of AFINITOR or tell you to temporarily interrupt dosing if needed.

 

You can use scissors to open the blister pack.

 

Swallow AFINITOR tablets whole with a glass of water. Do not take any tablet that is broken or crushed.

 

As you continue your treatment journey with AFINITOR, it is important that you keep in touch with your health care team and follow your doctor's directions so that you can get the most out of your therapy. Call your doctor if you have any questions about taking your medicine. AFINITOR will work best if you follow the directions from your doctor carefully.

 

You should have blood tests before you start AFINITOR and as needed during your treatment. These will include tests to check your blood cell count, kidney and liver function, and blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

 

If you take too much AFINITOR, contact your health care provider or go to the nearest hospital emergency room right away. Take the pack of AFINITOR with you.


If you miss a dose of AFINITOR, you may still take it up to 6 hours after the time you normally take it. If it is more than 6 hours after you normally take your AFINITOR, skip the dose for that day. The next day, take AFINITOR at your usual time. Do not take 2 doses to make up for a missed dose. If you are not sure what to do, call your health care provider.

Foods to avoid

You should not drink grapefruit juice or eat grapefruit during your treatment with AFINITOR. It may make the amount of AFINITOR in your blood increase to a harmful level.
