What side effects may occur?

VIJOICE can cause different kinds of side effects, so it’s important to know what to expect and to be prepared if side effects do occur.

VIJOICE has been studied for up to 6 years as a treatment for PIK3CA-Related Overgrowth Spectrum (PROS). In both the initial and longer-term studies, no one discontinued treatment due to side effects.

The serious side effects of VIJOICE include:

Serious side effects occurred in 12% of people who received VIJOICE. Dehydration and cellulitis, or a type of skin infection, were the only serious side effects that occurred in multiple people (dehydration in 2 people, cellulitis in 2 people).

If you develop certain serious side effects during treatment, your doctor may:

  • decrease the dose

  • recommend taking a break from treatment, or 

  • tell you to completely stop taking VIJOICE

Some side effects are more common than others, including:

Tell your doctor if you have any side effects that are bothersome or don’t go away. These are not all the possible side effects of VIJOICE.

Contact your doctor for medical advice about side effects.
