Tips to Help You Talk With Your Healthcare Provider

  • Prepare your questions ahead of time
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for the information you want
  • Bring someone with you to your appointment. They’ll help you keep track of the information your healthcare provider gives you
  • Bring a pen and paper so you can take notes
  • Repeat back what your doctor tells you. That way you can be sure you’ve understood it

What You Should Tell Your Healthcare Provider Before Taking ZYTIGA®

Before taking ZYTIGA®, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

  • Have heart problems
  • Have liver problems
  • Have a history of adrenal problems
  • Have a history of pituitary problems
  • Are receiving any other treatment for prostate cancer
  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. ZYTIGA® can cause harm to your unborn baby and loss of pregnancy (miscarriage). Females who are or may become pregnant should not handle ZYTIGA® uncoated tablets or other ZYTIGA® tablets if broken, crushed, or damaged without protection, such as gloves
  • Have a partner who is pregnant or may become pregnant
    • Males who have female partners who are able to become pregnant should use effective birth control (contraception) during treatment with ZYTIGA® and for 3 weeks after the last dose of ZYTIGA®
  • Are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if ZYTIGA® passes into your breastmilk

Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take or treatments you receive, including prescription and over-the counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. ZYTIGA® can interact with many other medicines.

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

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.
