Zelboraf Medication Information

Adults who have been diagnosed with an advanced case of melanoma (a type of skin cancer) may benefit from ZelborafTM (vemurafenib). This prescription medication can help slow down the progression of melanoma by blocking the action of an abnormal gene that causes an overgrowth of cancer cells.
 
Zelboraf comes in the form of a tablet that is taken twice daily, with 12 hours between doses. Your specific dosage will depend on how you respond to the medicine, whether you are taking other drugs, and other factors.
 
Prior to starting treatment with Zelboraf, make sure to review the medication's safety information with your healthcare provider. For instance, you may not be able to use this medicine if you have certain problems with your heart, eyes, or electrolytes. Also, this drug may react with certain other medications.
