  • Gilenya Overview

    Gilenya is used to treat multiple sclerosis-MS. It is not a cure for MS but it is thought to help by preventing immune system cells (lymphocytes) from attacking the nerves in your brain and spinal cord. It helps decrease the number of episodes of worsening and may prevent or delay disability.

  • How to Use Gilenya

    Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start taking fingolimod and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Before starting fingolimod, your doctor will do medical/laboratory tests (such as complete blood count, blood pressure, EKG, pulse, eye exam) to monitor for side effects. Take Gilenya by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once a day. You will be monitored for at least 6 hours after the first dose to make sure your heartbeat does not go too slow. A very slow heartbeat increases the risk for a serious heart rhythm problem (QT prolongation in the EKG). Tell your doctor if you have low levels of magnesium/potassium in the blood, personal or family history of QT prolongation in the EKG, family history of sudden cardiac death, or heart failure. Also tell your doctor if you are taking other drugs that can slow down your heartbeat or affect heart rhythm (such as causing QT prolongation in the EKG). See also Drug Interactions section. If your doctor temporarily stops your fingolimod, you may need to be heartbeat-monitored again for at least 6 hours after you restart Gilenya. Children who have their dosage increased may also need to be monitored again for 6 hours. Ask your doctor for details. Do not stop taking Gilenya without consulting your doctor. Your condition may become worse when Gilenya is stopped. Tell your doctor right away if your MS symptoms are much worse after stopping fingolimod. The Dosage of Gilenya is based on your age and weight. Do not increase your dose or use Gilenya more often or for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase. Take Gilenya regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day. Tell your doctor if your condition gets worse.
