Dosage/Direction for Use
Follow all directions given by the doctor and pharmacist carefully.
These instructions may differ from the information contained in this monograph.
If the instructions on the label are not understood, ask the doctor or pharmacist for help.
How much to take: For CML, the usual dose for an adult is 400 to 600 mg each day and the maximum dose is 800 mg each day. The dose depends on what stage of CML the patient has. For Ph-positive ALL the usual dose is 600 mg each day. For children treated with CML and Ph-positive ALL, the dose depends on the size of the child.
For MDS/MPD, the starting dose is 400 mg.
For HES/CEL, the usual starting dose is 400 mg. For some patients the starting dose may be 100 mg.
For DFSP, the starting dose is 800 mg per day.
Daily dose of 400 mg should be taken as one capsule of 400 mg once a day.
Daily dose of 600 mg should be taken as either: six capsules of 100 mg; or one capsule of 400 mg plus two 100 mg capsules once a day.
Daily dose of 800 mg should be taken as 400 mg twice a day, in the morning and in the evening.
The doctor may direct the patient to take a higher or lower dose, or stop treatment if needed depending on the response to Hemator.
Hemator is usually taken as a single dose each day. However, the doctor may want the patient to take them in two doses, one in the morning and one in the evening.
How to take it: Take the medicine with a large glass of water and food.
This will help to avoid irritating the lining of the oesophagus (food pipe) and stomach.
If unable to swallow the capsules: Put the content of the required capsule(s) in a glass of water or apple juice (approximately 50 ml for a 100 mg capsule and 200 ml for a 400 mg capsule).
Stir with a spoon to completely disintegrate the contents.
Immediately drink the whole contents of the glass.
For the best effect, take the medicine at about the same time each day.
Taking them at the same time each day will help remember to take them.
How long to take it: Continue taking Hemator every day for as long as the doctor prescribes.
The doctor will keep a close check on the patient to make sure he/she is still benefiting from treatment.
If the patient forgets to take it: Take the missed dose as soon as it is remembered, then continue with the normal schedule.
Do not take a double dose to make up for the missed dose.
This may increase the chance of getting an unwanted side effect.
If not sure what to do, ask the doctor or pharmacist.
If having trouble remembering when to take the medicine, ask the pharmacist for some hints.
