Votrient (pazopanib) is a cancer medicine that interferes with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body. Votrient is used to treat advanced renal cell carcinoma(kidney cancer). Votrient is also used to treat soft tissue sarcoma (a tumor that can develop in or around muscles, tendons, joints, organs, or blood vessels). Votrient is usually given after other cancer medications have been tried without successful treatment of soft tissue sarcoma.
How should I take Votrient?
Take Votrient exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Take this medicine on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal.
Do not crush a Votrient tablet. Swallow the tablet whole. Crushing the pill may cause your body to absorb too much of the drug at one time. Votrient can cause severe or life-threatening liver problems. While using this medicine, you may need frequent blood or urine tests. Your liver function and blood pressure will also need to be checked often. Your heart function may need to be checked using an electrocardiograph or ECG (sometimes called an EKG).
