This means that Health Canada has approved Lynparza (Olaparib) to be marketed based on promising evidence of effectiveness, but additional results of studies are needed to verify its effectiveness. An NOC/c is used to allow access to products that are used to treat or prevent serious, life-threatening, or severely debilitating illness.

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Lynparza (Olaparib). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Lynparza Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Lynparza (Olaparib).

Anemia: Lynparza (Olaparib) may cause low levels of red blood cells. If you experience symptoms of reduced red blood cell count (anemia) such as shortness of breath, feeling unusually tired, or pale skin, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Birth control: The effectiveness of hormonal birth control (birth control pill or monthly injections) may be reduced by Lynparza (Olaparib). Additional forms of birth control are recommended while taking Lynparza (Olaparib) and for at least 1 month after stopping the medication.

Bleeding: Lynparza (Olaparib) may cause a reduced number of platelets in the blood, which can make it difficult to stop cuts from bleeding. If you notice any signs of bleeding, such as frequent nosebleeds, unexplained bruising, or black and tarry stools, notify your doctor as soon as possible.

Blood Clots: Lynparza (Olaparib) may increase the chance of blood clot formation, causing reduction of blood flow to organs or the extremities.

If you have a history of clotting, you may be at increased risk of experiencing blood clot-related problems such as Heart Attack, Stroke, or clots in the deep veins of your leg. Discuss with your doctor how Lynparza (Olaparib) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Lynparza (Olaparib), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms such as sharp pain and swelling in the leg, difficulty breathing, chest pain, blurred vision or difficulty speaking, contact your doctor immediately.

Drowsiness/dizziness: Lynparza (Olaparib) may cause drowsiness or dizziness, affecting your ability to drive or operate machinery. Avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing other potentially hazardous tasks until you have determined how Lynparza (Olaparib) affects you.

Grapefruit and grapefruit juice: Grapefruit, star fruit, pomegranate, Seville oranges, and their juices interfere with how Lynparza (Olaparib) is broken down and removed from the body. Consuming any of these products while taking Lynparza (Olaparib) may cause the medication to build up in the body, causing severe side effects. For this reason, you should avoid these fruits and their juices while taking Lynparza (Olaparib).

Infection: As well as killing cancer cells, Lynparza (Olaparib) can reduce the number of cells that fight infection in the body (white blood cells). If possible, avoid contact with people with contagious infections. 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.

Kidney function: Decreased kidney function may cause Lynparza (Olaparib) to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have kidney problems, discuss with your doctor how Lynparza (Olaparib) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Lynparza (Olaparib), and whether any special monitoring is needed. Lynparza (Olaparib) is not recommended for people with severe kidney impairment or end-stage renal disease.

Liver function: Decreased liver function may cause Lynparza (Olaparib) to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have liver problems, discuss with your doctor how Lynparza (Olaparib) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Lynparza (Olaparib), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Lung inflammation: On rare occasions, some people taking Lynparza (Olaparib) have experienced lung inflammation (pneumonitis) causing difficulty breathing. This can be serious and sometimes fatal. If you experience new or worsening shortness of breath or cough (with or without fever) at any time while you are taking Lynparza (Olaparib), contact your doctor immediately.

Other cancers: Rarely, people who are using Lynparza (Olaparib) develop myelodysplastic syndrome/acute myeloid Leukemia (AML) or other diseases where the bone marrow is not able to properly make blood cells.

If you or your partner becomes pregnant while taking Lynparza (Olaparib), contact your doctor immediately.
