WHAT IS ZYTIGA®?

ZYTIGA® (abiraterone acetate) is a prescription medicine that is used along with prednisone. ZYTIGA® is used to treat men with prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body.

It is not known if ZYTIGA® is safe and effective in females or children.

  • Have heart problems

  • Have a history of pituitary problems
  • Are receiving any other treatment for prostate cancer
  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. ZYTIGA® can cause harm to your unborn baby and loss of pregnancy (miscarriage). Females who are or may become pregnant should not handle ZYTIGA® uncoated tablets or other ZYTIGA® tablets if broken, crushed, or damaged without protection, such as gloves
  • Have a partner who is pregnant or may become pregnant
    • Males who have female partners who are able to become pregnant should use effective birth control (contraception) during treatment with ZYTIGA® and for 3 weeks after the last dose of ZYTIGA®

Tell your healthcare provider if you notice any of the following changes:
    • Yellowing of the skin or eyes
    • Darkening of the urine
    • Severe nausea or vomiting
  • Increased risk of bone fracture and death when ZYTIGA® and prednisone or prednisolone is used in combination with a type of radiation called radium Ra 223 dichloride. Tell your healthcare provider about any other treatments you are taking for prostate cancer
