The Dosage of Mekinist is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Take Mekinist regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day. Do not increase your dose or use Mekinist more often or for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase. Since Mekinist can be absorbed through the skin and lungs and may harm an unborn baby, women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not handle Mekinist or breathe the dust from the tablets.
