IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION for RYDAPT® (midostaurin) capsules

CONTRAINDICATIONS

  • Do not use in patients with hypersensitivity to midostaurin or its excipients. Hypersensitivity reactions have included anaphylactic shock, dyspnea, flushing, chest pain, and angioedema

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS
Embryofetal Toxicity

  • Do not use during pregnancy. Midostaurin caused severe embryofetal abnormalities and death in animal studies
  • Verify pregnancy status of females of reproductive potential within 7 days prior to initiating RYDAPT
  • Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment and for at least 4 months after the last dose
  • Males taking RYDAPT should use effective contraception with females of reproductive potential and pregnant women and for at least 4 months after the last dose

Pulmonary Toxicity

  • Cases of interstitial lung disease and pneumonitis, some fatal, have occurred in patients treated with RYDAPT as monotherapy or with chemotherapy
  • Monitor patients for pulmonary symptoms. Discontinue RYDAPT in patients who experience signs or symptoms of interstitial lung disease or pneumonitis without an infectious etiology

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS
Lactation

  • Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in breastfed infants from RYDAPT, advise women not to breastfeed during treatment with RYDAPT and for at least 4 months after the last dose

Infertility

  • Based on findings in animals, RYDAPT may impair fertility in females and males of reproductive potential. It is unknown whether these effects on fertility are reversible

Drug Interactions

  • Strong CYP3A4 Inducers: Avoid concomitant use as strong CYP3A4 inducers decrease exposure to midostaurin and may reduce efficacy
  • Strong CYP3A4 Inhibitors: Coadministration with strong CYP3A4 inhibitors may increase midostaurin concentrations and may increase the risk of toxicity. Monitor patients for increased risk of adverse reactions, especially during the first week of RYDAPT use in each chemotherapy cycle and the first week of consecutive RYDAPT administration. Consider alternative therapies that do not strongly inhibit CYP3A4 activity
