Afinitor Disperz information

Side Effects
Available Form

The tablets for oral suspension are intended to be used to treat SEGA associated with TSC, and seizures associated with TSC only. If you are using the tablets for oral suspension, the tablets must be mixed with water to prepare a suspension (particles of drug mixed into a liquid) before taking the medication. Use tap water or non-sparkling water only. Do not use juice or any other liquids. You may choose to use an oral syringe to mix the tablets and water, or mix the tablets with water in a small amount of water in a glass.

To use an oral syringe, place the prescribed number of Afinitor Disperz (Everolimus) tablets for suspension into the oral syringe. Draw 5 mL of water and 4 mL of air into the syringe. Let the syringe rest for 3 minutes, until the tablets have mixed with the water and formed a suspension. Gently invert the syringe 5 times immediately before taking the dose. After taking the dose, draw another 5 mL of water into the syringe and gently swirl the water in the syringe to wash any remaining medication off the sides of the syringe. Swallow the contents of the syringe.

To use a small glass, place the prescribed number of Afinitor Disperz (Everolimus) tablets for oral suspension into the glass containing approximately 25 mL of water and let the tablets and water stand for 3 minutes. Stir the contents gently with a spoon and drink the contents immediately. After taking the dose, add a small amount of water to the glass and gently swirl the contents of the glass or rinse any remaining medication off the sides of the glass. Swallow the contents of the glass.

These tablets for suspension should not be swallowed whole, broken or crushed. Once the suspension has been prepared, it should be taken immediately. If it is not administered within 60 minutes, safely discard the suspension and start over. Wash your hands before and after preparing the suspension.

Avoid drinking grapefruit juice or eating grapefruit, star fruit, or Seville oranges. These foods can slow down how the body gets rid of the medication and may result in too much medication in the body.

It is important that Afinitor Disperz (Everolimus) be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is more than 6 hours after the time you normally take the medication, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Afinitor Disperz (Everolimus) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
