TALZENNA Patient Counseling Information (talazoparib)


Advise the patient to read the FDA-approved patient labeling (Patient Information).

  • MDS/AML: Advise patients to contact their healthcare provider if they experience weakness, feeling tired, fever, weight loss, frequent infections, bruising, bleeding easily, breathlessness, blood in urine or stool, and/or laboratory findings of low blood cell counts, or a need for blood transfusions. This may be a sign of hematological toxicity or a more serious uncommon bone marrow problem called MDS or AML, which have been reported in patients who received PARP inhibitors [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].
  • Myelosuppression: Advise patients that TALZENNA may affect hematopoiesis and can cause anemia, leukopenia/neutropenia, and/or thrombocytopenia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)].
  • Administration Instructions: Advise patients that TALZENNA can be taken once daily with or without food. Instruct patients that if they miss a dose of TALZENNA, they should take their next normal dose at the usual time. Also advise patients to swallow each capsule whole, and that capsules must not be opened or dissolved [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)].
  • Embryo-Fetal Toxicity: Advise females to inform their healthcare provider if they are pregnant or become pregnant. Inform female patients of the risk to a fetus and potential loss of the pregnancy [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)]. Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with TALZENNA and for at least 7 months after the last dose. Advise male patients with female partners of reproductive potential or who are pregnant to use effective contraception during treatment and for at least 4 months after receiving the last dose of TALZENNA [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3), Use in Specific Populations (8.1, 8.3)].
  • Lactation: Advise patients not to breastfeed while taking TALZENNA and for at least 1 month after receiving the last dose [see Use in Specific Populations (8.2)].
