Everolimus 5 mg is intended for the treatment of certain kind of non-malignant brain tumor in patients with tuberous sclerosis complex. It acts by impeding the growth of cancer cells.
Take this drug orally (generally once a day). Always take the drug with or without meal.
Avoid swallowing the pill. The medication must be dissolved in water. If another person is helping you prepare this drug, he/she must wear gloves while preparing each dosage to avert possible contact with the medication.
Never take more than 10 mg at once. You may use an oral syringe or a measuring glass (read the drug leaflet carefully). If you choose the first option, place the drug into a 10-ml syringe. Avoid breaking or crushing the pill. Pour 1 tsp (5 ml) of water into the syringe. Place the syringe into a container for a few minutes to dissolve the medication. Gently swirl the syringe five times before taking the drug. Always make sure you have taken the whole dose.
Don’t eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice during the treatment, as this fruit can enhance the risk of adverse effects. If you have any questions, consult your doctor.
As this drug can be absorbed through the lungs and skin (and therefore harm a fetus), pregnant women shouldn’t contact with this medication.
