KORSUVA is not recommended in patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis (fluid taken from abdomen)

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
What are the possible side effects of KORSUVA?

KORSUVA may cause serious side effects, including:

  • Dizziness, sleepiness mental status changes (e.g., confusion), and trouble walking (which may lead to falls). Sleepiness is more likely to occur in patients who are 65 years or older. Taking KORSUVA with centrally acting depressant medications (including anti-depressants and medicines used for anxiety, epilepsy, insomnia), sedating antihistamines (allergy medicines that can cause drowsiness), and opioid analgesics (certain pain medications) may increase the likelihood of these side effects.
  • Impairment of mental or physical abilities. You should not drive or operate dangerous machinery until the effect of KORSUVA on your ability to drive or operate machinery is known. The most common side effects of KORSUVA include: diarrhea, dizziness, nausea, trouble walking (including falls), high potassium, headache, sleepiness, and mental status changes (e.g., confusion).
What should I tell my doctor before taking KORSUVA?

Before you take KORSUVA, tell your doctor if you:

  • are currently taking centrally acting depressant medications (including anti-depressants and medicines used for anxiety, epilepsy, insomnia), sedating antihistamines (allergy medicines that can cause drowsiness) or opioid analgesics (certain pain medications)

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or plan to become pregnant or breastfeed. In pre-clinical studies, KORSUVA was shown to be transferable into breastmilk.
