Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Nexavar

Although Nexavar® (sorafenib) can be an effective treatment for certain types of kidney and liver cancer, it is not an appropriate medicine for everyone. For example, if you are taking carboplatin and paclitaxel (Taxol®) to treat a type of lung cancer known as squamous cell carcinoma, you should not take Nexavar. Combining all three of these medications can increase your risk for death.
 
To help avoid other potentially serious complications, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of all other medications you are taking, including nonprescription drugs, vitamins, and supplements, as well as any other medical conditions you may have, before beginning treatment with Nexavar.
