abiraterone food

Applies to: Zytiga (abiraterone)

Taking abiraterone with food increases the amount of medicine that gets absorbed by the body. This may increase the risk of side effects such as high blood pressure, water retention, and a condition called hypokalemia (low blood potassium), which in severe cases can lead to muscle weakness, paralysis, breathing and swallowing difficulties (due to muscle paralysis), and irregular heart rhythm. You should take abiraterone once a day on an empty stomach. No food should be eaten for at least two hours before and one hour after taking abiraterone. Let your doctor know if you experience nausea, vomiting, constipation, abdominal cramping, confusion, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, muscle weakness, muscle cramps, numbness or tingling, rapid heart beat, chest pain, and/or swelling in the legs or feet, as these may be symptoms of hypokalemia or excessive effects of abiraterone. 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.
