Zolinza 

Indication

Zolinza (Vorinostat) belongs to the class of medications called antineoplastics, or anticancer medications. It is used to treat a type of cancer called cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) that gets worse, does not go away, or comes back after treatment with other medications.

CTCL is a type of cancer that affects certain cells of the lymph system and affects your skin. Zolinza (Vorinostat) works by reducing the activity of histone deacetylase (HDAC), and this slows or stops the growth of cancer cells or causes the death of cancer cells.

Your doctor may have suggested Zolinza (Vorinostat) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. As well, some forms of Zolinza (Vorinostat) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Zolinza (Vorinostat), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Zolinza (Vorinostat) without consulting your doctor.

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

Zolinza 

Dosage

Many things can affect the dose of a 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 that Zolinza (Vorinostat) 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 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.
