Gilenya Information:

Gilenya (generic name: Fingolimod) is a new approved oral medication for the treatment of relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis. Gilenya does not cure multiple sclerosis (MS), however it does assist in slowing down the problems caused by MS. Gilenya can decrease the amount of MS relapses. Fingolimod belongs to the group of drugs called immunosuppressive. In patients with MS, the body’s own immune system attacks the insulating substance (myelin) around the nerve cell fibres. It is an inflammatory disease. Gilenya (fingolimod) works by suppressing the immune system to reduce the number of attacks on the myelin. Patients with MS may notice symptoms such as numbness and/or tingling, blurred vision, problems moving about and muscle weakness or tightness. MS is a lifelong condition but it is not terminal. MS can occur at any age but it is more common between the ages of 20 to 40. Women are more at risk by double than men of having MS. The disease occurs because of damage to the central nervous system, which is the brain and spinal cord. These are vital to the body because they control every action in the body. Gilenya helps to regain control by stopping the immune system from attacking the nervous system.

Gilenya Side Effects:

As with any drug, there may be side effects from taking Gilenya including dizziness, fatigue, changes in heartbeat, fever, body aches, chills, nausea and vomiting, headache, diarrhea, back pain, coughing, loss of appetite and dark urine. More serious side effects may include slow heart rate when you first start taking the drug, changes in vision, blind spot in centre of vision, sensitivity to light and infections. If you experience any side effects you must seek medical attention immediately for safety.

Gilenya Directions:

You should follow the instructions of the doctor who prescribed Gilenya to you. Directions and dosage information can also be found on the pack or leaflet inside the pack. Gilenya comes in capsule form. You should swallow Gilenya whole with a glass of water. Do not break or chew capsules as many are designed to release the drug at a specific rate, and chewing or breaking a capsule can cause too much of the drug to be released at once. Gilenya should be stored at room temperature away from direct sunlight and heat.

Gilenya Precautions:

If you are allergic to any of the ingredients of Gilenya, you should avoid taking it and inform your doctor. You must consult your doctor if you have any pre-existing medical conditions including irregular or abnormal heartbeat, heart problems, heart rate of less than 55bpm, history of fainting, fever or infection, eye problems (inflammation), diabetes, liver problems, breathing problems, high blood pressure. You must consult your doctor if you are taking any other medications as they may interact with Gilenya, including medication for heart problems, vaccines, medicines that can increase risk of infections (such as cancer or immune system medications), ketoconazole and any vitamins or supplements. It is important that you inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to conceive or breastfeeding as Gilenya may cause harm to unborn and new born babies.
