Common Questions and Answers

How often do I take Impavido (miltefosine)?


Normal dose is 50 mg three times a day for 28 days.


What is the most common side effect?


About half of all patients will experience GI issues such as nausea or vomiting.


How can I mitigate side effect of nausea/vomiting?


30 minutes before each meal take an anti-nauseant such as Zofran.  Then take Impavido with a fatty meal 30 minutes later.  Keep hydrated.  Its always easier to prevent nausea in the first place rather than treating after it happens.
