Warnings:

Sonidegib is not recommended for use during pregnancy because it may cause serious harm (possibly death) to an unborn baby. Women of childbearing age must have a pregnancy test before starting this medication. They must also use reliable forms of birth control while taking sonidegib and for 20 months after the last dose of this medication.

It is unknown if sonidegib passes into semen. Because of the possible risk of passing the drug on to a partner, men taking sonidegib (including men who have had a vasectomy) must use condoms during sex with women who are pregnant or of childbearing age, both during treatment with sonidegib and for 8 months after the last dose of this medication. Men should also not donate sperm during this time.

If you or your partner become pregnant or think you may be pregnant, tell your doctor right away.
