Talking to Your Doctor
You probably have questions about your disease and your treatment with YONDELIS®. Be sure to ask your doctor any questions or express any concerns before and during your treatment.
Before receiving YONDELIS®, be sure to tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions.
Tell your healthcare provider if you have liver or kidney problems.
Tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. YONDELIS® can harm your unborn baby. You should not become pregnant during treatment with YONDELIS®. Women who are able to become pregnant should use an effective form of birth control during treatment with YONDELIS®, and for 2 months after your last dose of YONDELIS®. Men should use an effective form of birth control when having sex with female partners who are able to become pregnant, during your treatment with YONDELIS®, and for 5 months after your last dose of YONDELIS®.
Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if YONDELIS® passes into your breast milk. You should not breastfeed during treatment with YONDELIS®.
Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
It is important to make your healthcare provider aware of any problems you experience during your treatment with YONDELIS®, during your infusion, and between treatments. The sooner you tell them, the quicker they can address them.
Tell your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any of the following:
Tell your healthcare provider if you have an allergic reaction (hypersensitivity). This could include difficulty breathing, chest tightness, wheezing, swelling of the lips, or skin rash.
Tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away. Learn more about the safety of YONDELIS®.
