Applies to: ACAM2000 (smallpox vaccine) and venetoclax
If you are currently being treated or have recently been treated with venetoclax, you should let your doctor know before receiving smallpox vaccine. Depending on the dose and length of time you have been on venetoclax, you may be at risk for developing an infection from the vaccine or have a reduced response to the vaccine. In some situations, your doctor may want to delay vaccination to give your body time to recover from the effects of venetoclax therapy. Conversely, if you have recently been vaccinated with smallpox vaccine, your doctor may choose to postpone treatment with venetoclax for a few weeks. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
Drug and food interactions

Food helps to increase the absorption of venetoclax. You should take each dose of venetoclax with a meal and water at approximately the same time each day. Do not consume grapefruit, grapefruit juice, Seville oranges, or starfruit during treatment with venetoclax. Doing so can significantly increase blood levels and effects of the medication. This may increase your risk of developing tumor lysis syndrome, a serious condition that is caused by the rapid breakdown of cancer cells and that can lead to kidney failure and even death. In addition, you may be more likely to experience other side effects such as nausea; vomiting; diarrhea; fatigue; and impaired bone marrow function resulting in low numbers of different types of blood cells, which can increase the risk of anemia, bleeding problems, and infections. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs.
