RYDAPT® (midostaurin) capsules is a prescription medicine taken by mouth twice a day with food. You should always take RYDAPT exactly as your doctor tells you.
How often do I take RYDAPT for advanced systemic mastocytosis (SM)?
Capsules not actual size.
Your doctor will tell you how many capsules of RYDAPT you need to take. The usual starting dose is 4 capsules twice a day. These should be taken about 12 hours apart (with breakfast and with dinner).
Taking RYDAPT at the same time each day will help you to remember when to take your medicine.
Your doctor may tell you to decrease your dose, temporarily stop, or completely stop taking RYDAPT if you develop certain side effects during treatment with RYDAPT. Do not change your dose unless your doctor tells you to.
