Nexavar Medication Information

Adults who have certain types of liver or kidney cancer may be able to increase survival time by taking Nexavar® (sorafenib). This chemotherapy drug is specifically approved to treat hepatocellular carcinoma (a type of liver cancer) that cannot be treated with surgery and renal cell carcinoma (a type of kidney cancer) that has spread beyond the kidneys.
 
Nexavar works by blocking certain enzymes in the body that are responsible for causing the cancer cells to grow and multiply. It comes in the form of a tablet and is usually taken twice daily on an empty stomach.
 
Before taking Nexavar, your healthcare provider will need information on all other medications you are taking, including vitamins and supplements, as well as any allergies you may have. It is also important to let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or if you have any other medical problems.
