Zeposia Initiation Pack How to Take

Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) belongs to the class of medications called sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) receptor modulators. It is used to treat the relapsing-remitting form of Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS).

Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) does not cure MS, but it helps to reduce the number of attacks (relapses) that occur, reduce inflammation in the brain (brain lesions seen on MRI scans), and slow the buildup of physical problems due to MS (disability progression). It is generally used for people who have not responded well to, or cannot tolerate, one or more of the other treatments for MS.

The exact way that Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) works is not known. It is believed to work by lowering the number of white blood cells (lymphocytes) circulating in your blood by preventing them from moving freely within the body. In MS, when lymphocytes reach the brain and spinal cord, they are thought to cause the inflammation that contributes to loss of the protective sheath (called myelin) that normally covers the nerve fibres and ensures that they work properly. Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) may keep these cells from reaching the brain and spinal cord.

Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Your privacy is important. That's why we send your medication inside a plain delivery box so no one will know what's inside.

Zeposia Initiation Pack Dosage

The starting dose of Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) is 0.23 mg taken by mouth once daily for the first 4 days. For the next 3 days (days 5 to 7) the daily dose is 0.46 mg. This gradual increase in dose helps to keep the heart rate from dropping too much and to prevent other side effects that can occur when starting Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod). After the first 7 days, the daily dose is 0.92 mg daily.

The starter pack of Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) contains 7 capsules only. This is enough to complete the first 7 days of treatment before continuing with the maintenance dose. Capsules should be swallowed whole, with a glass of water. Do not break, crush, or chew the capsules. Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) may be taken with or without food.

Depending on other medical conditions, you may be asked to take the first dose of Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) in your doctor's office or clinic and stay at the office for at least 6 hours after the first dose. This will allow the doctor to monitor for side effects such as slowed heartbeat and treat the effects before they become an emergency.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

If you have been taking Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) for less than 14 days and you forget to take a dose for one day or more, or if you stop taking Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) for more than 7 days between weeks 2 to 4 of treatment, contact your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor may choose to monitor you for heart and blood pressure effects before you restart the medication.

If Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) is stopped for more than 2 weeks, contact your doctor. You will be monitored for heart and blood pressure effects again when you restart the medication. You will need to restart with the lowest available dose and gradually increase your daily dose as before.

After the first 2 weeks of treatment, if you miss a dose take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, 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 .

Report any changes in vision to your doctor as soon as possible.

Heart problems: Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) causes a decrease in heart rate a few hours after taking the first dose. Your doctor will want to check your heart before you start Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod). You may be asked to stay at your doctor's office or clinic for 6 hours after your first dose to allow the doctor to monitor your heart rate and treat any problems before they become an emergency. It may be necessary to be monitored for a longer period of time if you develop very low heart rate or an irregular heartbeat.

If you have a heart problem, discuss with your doctor how Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Infections: Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) works by decreasing the number of white blood cells in the blood stream. White blood cells are responsible for fighting infection in the body.

If you notice signs of an infection, such as fever, redness, or swelling, contact your doctor as soon as possible. Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) stays in your body for about 3 months after you stop taking it, so you will continue to be at risk of infection during this time.

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

Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES): This is a rare disease of the brain that may occur when using Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod). If you have had a previous episode of PRES, this may not be an appropriate medication for you. Make sure your doctor knows you have experienced this before. If you experience signs and symptoms of PRES, such as headache, nausea, vomiting, seizures, change in awareness or consciousness, or vision changes, contact your doctor immediately.

Serotonin syndrome: Severe reactions are possible when Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) is combined with other medications that act on serotonin, such as serotonin reuptake inhibitors, medications used to treat depression, and certain migraine medications. These combinations should be avoided. Symptoms of a reaction may include muscle rigidity and spasms, difficulty moving, or changes in mental state including delirium and agitation. Coma and death are possible.

Stopping Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod): Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) works while it is being taken properly. Because it stays in the body for a long period of time, you may experience the benefit of having taken Zeposia Initiation Pack (Ozanimod) for several weeks after stopping.
