How to use Lenvima
Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. Swallow the capsules whole. If you have trouble swallowing the capsules whole, place the capsules in a glass with a small amount of water or apple juice (1 tablespoon/15 milliliters). Let the capsules sit in the liquid for 10 minutes. Do not crush or break the capsules. After 10 minutes, stir the contents of the glass for at least 3 minutes. Drink all of the mixture right away. Then rinse the glass with another small amount of water or apple juice and drink the rinsing liquid to make sure you have taken the entire dose. Do not prepare a supply in advance.
Lenvatinib may have different packaging and different dosage instructions based on your medical condition. To prevent dosage errors, ask your pharmacist about proper use. The dosage is also based on your response to treatment, laboratory tests - and on your weight for the treatment of liver cancer.
Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.
Do not increase your dose or use this drug more often or for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of serious side effects will increase.
Since this drug can be absorbed through the skin and lungs and may harm an unborn baby, women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not handle this medication or breathe the dust from the capsules.
