Always take Teysuno exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor if you are not sure.
Your doctor will tell you what dose you need to take, when to take it and for how long you need to take it. Your dose of Teysuno will be determined by your doctor based on your height and weight. Your doctor may reduce the dose if you have side effects that are too severe.
Teysuno capsules should be swallowed with water at least 1 hour before or 1 hour after a meal. Teysuno must be taken twice daily (morning and evening).
Teysuno capsules are usually taken for 21 days followed by a 7 day rest period (when no capsules are taken). This 28 day period is one treatment cycle. The cycles are repeated.
Teysuno will be given with another anti-cancer medicine called cisplatin. Cisplatin will be stopped after 6 treatment cycles. Teysuno can be continued after stopping cisplatin.
If you take more Teysuno than you should
If you take more capsules than you should, contact your doctor immediately.
If you forget to take Teysuno
Do not take the missed dose at all and do not double the next one. Instead, continue your regular dosing schedule and check with your doctor.
If you stop taking Teysuno
There are no side effects caused by stopping treatment with Teysuno. In case you are using blood thinning or anti-seizure medications, stopping Teysuno might require that your doctor adjusts the dose of your medications.
If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor.
