Jakafi Dosage

General Information on Taking Jakafi

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Jakafi include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in the form of a tablet. It is usually taken by mouth twice a day.
 
  • You can take Jakafi with or without food.
 
  • Do not drink grapefruit juice during treatment with this medicine. Grapefruit juice may affect the amount of Jakafi in your bloodstream.
 
  • If you cannot swallow Jakafi tablets, the medicine may be dissolved in water and given through a nasogastric tube (a special tube that is inserted through the nostril, down the back of the throat, and into the stomach).
 
  • Try to take your doses at the same times each day to keep an even level of the drug in your bloodstream.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Your symptoms will return if you stop taking this medication.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Jakafi dosing in general, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
