 FAQs

Q. How is Nexavar administered?

Nexavar is an oral medicine and you should take it exactly as per your doctor’s advice. It can be taken without food or with low to moderate fat meal. It should not be taken with high-fat meal which will make Nexavar less effective. If you are taking high-fat meal, take Sorafenib 1 hour before or two hours after high-fat meal.

Q. For how long do I need to take Nexavar?

If Nexavar suits you well, then you should continue taking it for the duration suggested the doctor. However, if you experience any side effect that bothers you, talk to your doctor immediately.

Q. Do I need to take a treatment along with Nexavar for it to work?

Nexavar is used as a monotherapy, that is, it is a medicine which is used alone rather than in combination with other treatments like radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

Q. How do I know if I am responding to Nexavar?

While receiving treatment with Nexavar, your doctor will most likely recommend regular scans to monitor the size of the tumor. You may also need to get regular blood tests to see if the deranged liver or kidney functions have improved or not.

Q. What are the serious side effects that can occur while taking Nexavar?

The possible serious side effects that may occur (not in everyone) include heart attack and heart failure, increased risk of bleeding, high blood pressure, skin problems and wound healing problems. Some other side effects which get highlighted when you go through various tests are decreased blood flow to the heart, swelling of the liver, an opening in the wall of stomach or intestines (perforation), changes in electrical activity of the heart (QT prolongation) and changes in thyroid hormone levels.

Q. Does Nexavar affect blood sugar levels?

Yes, Nexavar can cause a decrease in the blood sugar levels. In fact, the levels can decrease to the extent that the patient may faint. So, it is important that the patients having diabetes check their blood sugar levels regularly. Additionally, you should also consult the doctor if the dose of anti-diabetic medicines needs to be adjusted.

Q. I have developed redness and pain in my palms and soles ever since I started using Nexavar. My skin is also coming off. Is this dangerous? What should I do?

It seems you have developed hand and foot skin reaction due to Nexavar. Consult your doctor who will either interrupt your therapy for sometime or change your dose. He might also suggest some cream or lotion to treat the problem. If the problem is severe, consult a skin doctor.
