Before Treatment With Xofigo®
Xofigo is not for use in women. It should not be given to women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant. Taking Xofigo could potentially harm their unborn baby. Women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not come in contact with Xofigo without protection, such as wearing gloves.
If you suffer from bone marrow problems (a decrease in blood cell production in the bone marrow), your healthcare provider will decide if treatment is appropriate. In a clinical trial, some patients had to permanently discontinue therapy because of bone marrow problems. In addition, there were some deaths and blood transfusions that occurred due to severe bone marrow problems.
Xofigo can cause your blood cells counts to go down. Your healthcare provider will do blood tests before and during treatment with Xofigo.
Tell your healthcare provider if you are receiving any chemotherapy or any extensive radiation therapy. The use of chemotherapy while taking Xofigo is not recommended.
Tell your healthcare provider if you have any other medical conditions.
