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.
