SUTENT®Drug Interactions (sunitinib malate)

7 DRUG INTERACTIONS

7.1 Effect of Other Drugs on SUTENT

Strong CYP3A4 Inhibitors

Co-administration with strong CYP3A4 inhibitors may increase sunitinib plasma concentrations [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Select an alternate concomitant medication with no or minimal enzyme inhibition potential. Consider a dose reduction for SUTENT when it is co-administered with strong CYP3A4 inhibitors [see Dosage and Administration (2.5)].

Strong CYP3A4 Inducers

Co-administration with strong CYP3A4 inducers may decrease sunitinib plasma concentrations [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Select an alternate concomitant medication with no or minimal enzyme induction potential. Consider a dose increase for SUTENT when it must be co-administered with CYP3A4 inducers [see Dosage and Administration (2.5)].

7.2 Drugs that Prolong QT Interval

SUTENT is associated with QTc interval prolongation [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3), Clinical Pharmacology (12.2)]. Monitor the QT interval with ECGs more frequently in patients who require treatment with concomitant medications known to prolong the QT interval.
