    Before taking NUBEQA, tell your healthcare provider about all your medical conditions, including if you:

    • Have heart problems
    • Have high blood pressure
    • Have diabetes
    • Have high amounts of fat or cholesterol in your blood (dyslipidemia)
    • Have a history of seizures, brain injury, stroke, or brain tumors
    • Have kidney or liver problems
    • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. NUBEQA can cause harm to your unborn baby and loss of pregnancy (miscarriage)
    • Have a partner who may become pregnant. Males who have female partners who may become pregnant should use effective birth control (contraception) during treatment and for 1 week after the last dose of NUBEQA. Talk with your healthcare provider about birth control methods
    • Are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if NUBEQA passes into breast milk

    Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. NUBEQA may affect the way other medicines work and other medicines may affect how NUBEQA works.

    You should not start or stop any medicine before you talk with the healthcare provider that prescribed NUBEQA.

    Know the medicines you take. Keep a list of them with you to show to your healthcare provider and pharmacist when you get a new medicine.

      • Take NUBEQA exactly as your healthcare provider tells you
      • Your healthcare provider may change your dose, temporarily stop, or completely stop your treatment with NUBEQA if you have certain side effects
      • Take your prescribed dose of NUBEQA 2 times a day with food
      • Swallow NUBEQA tablets whole
      • If you are receiving gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analog therapy, you should continue with this treatment during your treatment with NUBEQA unless you have had a surgery to lower the amount of testosterone in your body (surgical castration)
      • If you miss a dose of NUBEQA, take your prescribed dose as soon as you remember before the next scheduled dose. Do not take 2 doses together to make up for a missed dose
      • If you take more NUBEQA than prescribed, call your healthcare provider right away

        NUBEQA is not chemotherapy, but it is approved in combination with a chemotherapy called docetaxel for the treatment of metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC).

        • Docetaxel is given as an intravenous (IV) infusion in your arm once every 3 weeks for up to 6 cycles
        • Your doctor may change, delay, or stop treatment with docetaxel if needed
        • Once chemotherapy is complete, treatment with NUBEQA can be continued as prescribed by your doctor

        *Hormone therapy includes drug treatments or surgery to lower testosterone.
