Blood pressure: Imbruvica (Ibrutinib) may cause increased blood pressure.

Diarrhea and dehydration: Imbruvica (Ibrutinib) causes diarrhea in many patients. Diarrhea causes fluid loss from the body and can complicate cancer treatment. If you experience diarrhea while taking Imbruvica (Ibrutinib), contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Imbruvica (Ibrutinib) may affect the mental or physical abilities needed to drive or operate machinery. Avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous tasks until you have determined how Imbruvica (Ibrutinib) affects you.

Hepatitis B reactivation: People who have hepatitis B infection that is dormant may experience the infection returning, causing further liver dysfunction or liver failure. If you have a history of hepatitis B infection, discuss with your doctor how Imbruvica (Ibrutinib) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of this mediation, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms of worsening liver function, such as fatigue, feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain or swelling, and itchy skin, contact your doctor immediately.

Your doctor will monitor the progress of this with blood tests.

Tell your doctor immediately if you notice signs of an infection, such as fever or chills, severe diarrhea, shortness of breath, prolonged dizziness, headache, stiff neck, weight loss, or listlessness.

If you experience memory loss, vision changes, trouble thinking, personality changes, or difficulty walking, contact your doctor immediately.

Tumour lysis syndrome: Imbruvica (Ibrutinib), like many other cancer medications, causes many cancer cells to be suddenly killed when treatment is first started. This can overwhelm the body with waste products from the cells. As a result, the body may not be able to keep up with getting rid of all the waste. When this happens, you may experience nausea, shortness of breath, cloudy urine, or joint pain. This is called tumour lysis syndrome. Your doctor may prescribe some medications to help your body get rid of the waste products. Make sure you understand how to use these medications and report any of these signs or symptoms to your doctor immediately.

Pregnancy: Imbruvica (Ibrutinib) should not be used during pregnancy, as it may harm the developing baby. If you become pregnant while taking Imbruvica (Ibrutinib), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if Imbruvica (Ibrutinib) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Imbruvica (Ibrutinib), it may affect your baby.
