The usual recommended starting dose of oral NINLARO is one 4 mg capsule taken once a week with lenalidomide and dexamethasone at standard dosing2
NINLARO + Rd offers the convenience of all-oral administration2
- Should be taken at least 1 hour before or at least 2 hours after food2
- Should be swallowed whole with a glass of water2
- Antiviral prophylaxis should be considered to reduce the risk of herpes zoster reactivation2
If a dose of NINLARO is delayed or missed, the dose should be taken only if the next scheduled dose is ≥72 hours away2
NINLARO should be stored in the original packaging and the capsules should be removed just prior to dosing2

Minimum number of planned hospital visits required for administration/collection of multiple myeloma treatments over 18 cycles2,5-7†
NINLARO + Rd
Carfilzomib + Rd
†Patients are treated until progression or unacceptable toxicity. Calculation excludes visits for monitoring. Standard carfilzomib regimen is 18 cycles; number of administrations of carfilzomib per cycle: cycle 1-12 = 6 doses (2 consecutive doses each week for 3 weeks), cycle 13-18 = 4 doses (2 consecutive doses during 1st and 3rd week). Treatment with carfilzomib + Rd for longer than 18 cycles should be based on an individual benefit risk assessment, as the data on the tolerability and toxicity of carfilzomib beyond 18 cycles are limited7
