Moderate Food Interaction
Sonidegib should be taken on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. The presence of food can significantly increase the absorption of sonidegib into the blood stream. This may increase side effects such as muscle spasms, muscle pain, muscle weakness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, weight loss, hair loss, itching, and taste abnormalities. You may also have an increased risk of developing a rare but serious condition called rhabdomyolysis that involves the breakdown of skeletal muscle tissue. In some cases, rhabdomyolysis can cause kidney damage and even death. Let your doctor know immediately if you have unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness during treatment with sonidegib, especially if these symptoms are accompanied by fever or dark colored urine. Grapefruit juice may also increase the blood levels of sonidegib and should be avoided. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns.
