Error in ZYTIGA® Beginning Your Treatment Brochure

It has come to Malecare’s attention that the dosing schedule for ZYTIGA® (abiraterone acetate) is incorrectly described in the ZYTIGA® Beginning Your Treatment brochure.

Please destroy the ZYTIGA® Beginning Your Treatment brochure and the ZYTIGA® Resource Kit. It contains inaccurate dosing information.

Please ask your doctor, today, to ensure that you understand the appropriate dosing for ZYTIGA®. The recommended dose for ZYTIGA® is 1,000 mg (four 250-mg tablets) administered orally once daily

[in combination with prednisone 5 mg administered orally twice daily].

It is a massive shame on JANSSEN that Malecare has found this out, indirectly. Patients, through their advocacy organizations like Malecare, should have been notified, directly. We say again, SHAME ON JANSSEN for outrageously poor patient communication!  Direct any additional questions to Janssen Medical Information: 1-800-JANSSEN(1-800-526-7736), Monday–Friday 9 am–8 pm ET; Saturday and Sunday 9 am–5 pm ET.
