ZYKADIA® (ceritinib)

Understanding Side Effects

Treatment for ALK+ metastatic NSCLC means staying on therapy as long as it continues to work. Many people are concerned about the possible side effects that may result.

The most common side effects of ZYKADIA® (ceritinib) include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach-area pain
  • Tiredness (fatigue)
  • Decreased appetite
  • Constipation

Tell your doctor if you have any side effect that bothers you or does not go away. These are not all of the possible side effects of ZYKADIA.

Talk to your doctor about your side effects

Be sure to tell your doctor how you are feeling or if you have any concerns about your treatment, especially if you think you are experiencing any treatment side effects. Some of the gastrointestinal side effects can be managed by supportive care with standard antiemetics (for nausea/vomiting), antidiarrheal medications, and/or fluid replacement. Consult your doctor to develop an appropriate side effects management plan. Your doctor may temporarily interrupt or reduce your dose of ZYKADIA.
