s hypersensitivity reactions (such as anaphylaxis and angioedema) have been reported in patients receiving EXJADE, with the onset of the reaction occurring in the majority of cases within the first month of treatment. If reactions are severe, discontinue EXJADE and institute appropriate medical intervention.

Skin rashes may occur during treatment with EXJADE. For rashes of mild to moderate severity, EXJADE may be continued without dose adjustment, since the rash often resolves spontaneously. In severe cases, EXJADE may be interrupted. Reintroduction at a lower dose with escalation may be considered in combination with a short period of oral steroid administration.

Special senses: Auditory (high-frequency hearing loss, decreased hearing) and ocular (lens opacities, cataracts, elevations in intraocular pressure, and retinal disorders) disturbances have been reported with EXJADE therapy in less than 1% of patients in clinical trials. Auditory and ophthalmic testing (including slit lamp examinations and dilated fundoscopy) are recommended before the start of EXJADE treatment and thereafter at regular intervals (every 12 months). If disturbances are noted, consider dose reduction or interruption.

Gastrointestinal: Gastrointestinal (GI) irritation may occur during EXJADE treatment. Upper GI ulceration and hemorrhage have been reported in patients, including children and adolescents, receiving EXJADE. Physicians and patients should remain alert for signs and symptoms of GI ulceration and hemorrhage and promptly initiate additional evaluation and treatment if a serious GI adverse event is suspected. Use caution when administering EXJADE in combination with drugs that have ulcerogenic or hemorrhagic potential, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids, oral bisphosphonates, or anticoagulants.
