Inlyta Buy Online Axitinib 5 mg 56 Tablets

Axitinib (AG013736; Inlyta) is a small molecule that inhibits tyrosine kinase developed by Pfizer. It significantly inhibits the growth of breast cancer in xenograft models and has shown efficacy in clinical trials of renal carcinoma.

 

1. What Inlyta is and what it is used for

Inlyta is a medicine containing the active substance axitinib. Axitinib reduces the blood supply to the tumour and slows down the growth of cancer.

Inlyta is indicated for the treatment of advanced kidney cancer (advanced renal cell carcinoma) in adults, when another medicine (called sunitinib or a cytokine) is no longer stopping disease from progressing.

If you have any questions about how this medicine works or why this medicine has been prescribed for you, ask your doctor.

2. What you need to know before you take Inlyta

Do not take Inlyta:

If you are allergic to axitinib or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6). If you think you may be allergic, ask your doctor for advice.

Warnings and precautions
Talk to your doctor or nurse before taking Inlyta:

  •   If you have high blood pressure.
    Inlyta can raise your blood pressure. It is important to check your blood pressure before you take this medicine, and regularly while you are taking it. If you have high blood pressure (hypertension) you may be treated with medicines to reduce the blood pressure. Your doctor should make sure that your blood pressure is under control before starting Inlyta treatment, and while on treatment with this medicine.

  •   If you have thyroid gland problems.
    Inlyta can cause thyroid gland problems. Tell your doctor if you get tired more easily, generally feel colder than other people, or your voice deepens whilst taking this medicine. Your thyroid function should be checked before you take Inlyta and regularly while you are taking it. If your thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroid hormone before, or while on treatment with this medicine, you should be treated with thyroid hormone replacement.

  •   If you have had a recent problem with blood clots in your veins and arteries (types of blood vessels), including stroke, heart attack, embolism, or thrombosis.
    Get emergency help right away and call your doctor if you get symptoms such as chest pain or pressure; pain in your arms, back, neck or jaw; shortness of breath; numbness or weakness on one side of your body; trouble talking; headache; vision changes; or dizziness while on treatment with this medicine.

  •   If you suffer from bleeding problems.
    Inlyta may increase your chance of bleeding. Tell your doctor if you have any bleeding, coughing up of blood or bloody sputum while on treatment with this medicine.

  •   If during treatment with this medicine you get severe stomach (abdominal) pain or stomach pain that does not go away.
    Inlyta may increase the risk of developing a hole in the stomach or intestine or formation of fistula (abnormal tube-like passage from one normal body cavity to another body cavity or the skin).

    Tell your doctor if you have severe abdominal pain while on treatment with this medicine.

  •   If you are going to have an operation or if you have an unhealed wound.
    Your doctor should stop Inlyta at least 24 hours before your operation as it may affect wound healing. Your treatment with this medicine should be restarted when the wound has adequately healed.

  •   If during treatment with this medicine, you get symptoms such as headache, confusion, seizures (fits), or changes in vision with or without high blood pressure.
    Get emergency help right away and call your doctor. This could be a rare neurological side effect named posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome.

  •   If you have liver problems.
    Your doctor should do blood tests to check your liver function before and during treatment with Inlyta.

  •   If during treatment with this medicine, you get symptoms such as excessive tiredness, swelling of the abdomen, legs or ankles, shortness of breath, or protruding neck veins. Inlyta may increase the risk of developing heart failure events. Your doctor should monitor for signs or symptoms of heart failure events periodically throughout treatment with axitinib.
