Major Food Interaction

Pemigatinib may be taken with or without food. Do not consume grapefruit, grapefruit juice, or any supplements that contain grapefruit extract during treatment with pemigatinib unless directed otherwise by your doctor. Grapefruit juice can increase the blood levels of pemigatinib. This may increase the frequency and severity of serious side effects such as elevated phosphate levels in the blood (which can eventually lead to low blood calcium levels; calcium deposits in the skin, muscles, and other tissues; anemia; muscle cramps; seizures; and irregular heart rhythm), eye and vision problems, joint pain, mouth sores and inflammation, hair loss, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and constipation. 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. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
