It's important to understand your ZYDELIG dose and to take your medication exactly as prescribed.
The recommended starting dose for ZYDELIG is 150 mg twice daily. If you experience certain side effects while taking ZYDELIG, your doctor may decide to temporarily or permanently stop ZYDELIG to address the side effect. Once the side effect is resolved, your doctor may restart ZYDELIG at 100 mg twice daily. Of the patients in the clinical trial who stopped and restarted ZYDELIG in order to manage certain side effects, more than half who stopped due to diarrhea or liver toxicity were ultimately able to remain on therapy.2
