IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Reading the CMI does not take the place of counselling by a health professional. Always talk to your doctor or pharmacist about all aspects of your medicines, including why you are taking them and what benefits / risks you can expect.
The CMI for your medicine that is on this web site is the most up-to-date version available. It may differ from a CMI that you previously received from your doctor or pharmacist, or in your pack of medicine.

This web site does not contain all CMIs for medicines sold in Australia and not all medicines have a CMI available for them. If you do not find a CMI for your medicine on this page, contact the pharmaceutical company who makes the medicine or talk to your doctor or pharmacist. The information on this web site is intended for use in Australia only.

Expand Adcetris 17 May 2021
 
Adcetris contains the active ingredient brentuximab vedotin.
Adcetris belongs to a group of medicines known as anti-cancer agents. There are many different classes of anti-cancer agents.
Adcetris is designed to work differently than traditional anti-cancer agents (chemotherapy). Traditional chemotherapy enters the blood and kills both cancer cells and healthy cells that divide rapidly. Adcetris is made up of a monoclonal antibody linked to a substance intended to kill cancer cells. This substance is delivered to cancer cells by the monoclonal antibody.
A monoclonal antibody is a protein which recognises certain cancer cells.
Adcetris is used to treat Hodgkin Lymphoma that has come back or not responded to previous treatment.
Adcetris may also be used alone to lower the likelihood of Hodgkin Lymphoma coming back after a stem cell transplant in patients with certain risk factors. In these patients, Adcetris may help prevent or delay recurrence of disease. Your doctor will discuss the potential risks and benefits of receiving Adcetris following a stem cell transplant.
Hodgkin Lymphoma is a type of cancer of the white blood cells.
Adcetris is also used to treat patients with cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma (CTCL) who have previously received at least one anti-cancer medicine that travels through the bloodstream.
CTCL is a cancer of a certain type of white blood cell called a ‘T-cell’ that mainly affects the skin. Adcetris is used to treat CTCL where a specific type of protein is present on the cells’ surface.
Adcetris is also used to treat patients with peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma (PTCL) who have not had treatment before.
PTCL is a type of non Hodgkin Lymphoma found in the lymph nodes and/or throughout other parts of the body. When Adcetris is used to treat PTCL that has not already been treated, it is given in combination with other chemotherapy medicines used to treat this condition.
Systemic Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (sALCL) is a type of PTCL. Adcetris may also be used alone to treat sALCL that has come back or not responded to previous treatment.
Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why it has been prescribed for you.
Your doctor may have prescribed it for another purpose.
This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.

Expand Adefin XL 15 Jan 2020
 
ADEFIN XL is used to:
treat high blood pressure
prevent chronic stable angina, a type of angina (chest pain).
ADEFIN XL is not used to relieve sudden attacks of angina or to manage unstable angina.
ADEFIN XL contains the active ingredient nifedipine which belongs to a group of medicines called calcium channel blockers.
Calcium channel blockers work by opening up blood vessels in the body to lower blood pressure and improve the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart.
ADEFIN XL tablets are specially designed with a strong outer shell. This outer shell allows the medicine to be released slowly into the body over a longer period of time after it is taken. The outer shell is excreted or passed out in the faeces (or bowel motions), as it does not dissolve in the body. Therefore, it is normal to find a "tablet-like" object in the faeces. The active substance contained in them has been absorbed by the body before excretion.
Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why ADEFIN XL has been prescribed for you.
Your doctor may have prescribed it for another reason.
This medicine is only available with a doctor's prescription.
