Rezlidhia Warnings/Precautions


Obtain blood counts and blood chemistries including liver function tests prior to initiation, at least once weekly for the first 2 months, once every other week for the 3rd month, once in the 4th month, and once every other month thereafter. Withhold treatment if differentiation syndrome is suspected, and initiate systemic corticosteroids (eg, dexamethasone 10mg IV every 12hrs for at least 3 days) and hemodynamic monitoring until symptom resolution; initiate hydroxyurea if concomitant leukocytosis is observed. Withhold, reduce, or permanently discontinue if hepatic dysfunction occurs; monitor frequently for clinical symptoms (eg, fatigue, anorexia, right upper abdominal discomfort, dark urine, jaundice). Mild (total bilirubin ULN and any AST >ULN or total bilirubin >1–1.5xULN and any AST) or moderate (total bilirubin >1.5–3xULN and any AST) hepatic impairment: increased risk of differentiation syndrome; monitor closely. Severe renal impairment (CrCL 15–29mL/min), renal failure (CrCL <15mL/min), on dialysis, or severe hepatic impairment (total bilirubin >3xULN with any AST): dosage not established. Pregnancy. Nursing mothers: not recommended (during and for 2 weeks after the last dose).
