TAVALISSE dose modification guidance1
Modification of the TAVALISSE dose can help in the management of adverse reactions
- In addition to supportive care measures, management of some adverse reactions may require dose interruption, reduction, or discontinuation
- See section 2.3 of the full Prescribing Information for specific guidance on dose modifications and recommendations for treatment discontinuations regarding hypertension, hepatotoxicity, diarrhea, and neutropenia
- Starting with the current dose, gradually reduce the dose following the steps provided below until the adverse reaction resolves
- Concomitant use with a strong CYP3A4 inhibitor increases exposure to the major active metabolite of TAVALISSE. Monitor for toxicities of TAVALISSE that may require TAVALISSE dose modifications when given concurrently with a strong CYP3A4 inhibitor
§If further dose reduction below 100 mg/day is required, discontinue TAVALISSE.
||Once-daily TAVALISSE should be taken in the morning.
