Recorlev Frequently Asked Questions

Levoketoconazole has rarely caused very serious (possibly fatal) liver problems. It should not be used by people with severe liver disease, gallstones, or by people who had liver problems caused by azole antifungal drugs (such as ketoconazole). Get medical help right away if you develop symptoms of liver problems, such as nausea/vomiting that doesn't stop, loss of appetite, stomach/abdominal pain, yellowing eyes/skin, dark urine.

Levoketoconazole may also cause a condition that affects the heart rhythm (QT prolongation). QT prolongation can rarely cause serious (rarely fatal) fast/irregular heartbeat and other symptoms (such as severe dizziness, fainting) that need medical attention right away. Levoketoconazole must not be used with other medications that may also affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation) or be used by people with a history of certain heart diseases (such as ventricular arrhythmias, long QT syndrome). Tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the medications and products you take before you start levoketoconazole treatment. See also Precautions and Drug Interactions sections.

To reduce the risk of these very serious side effects, your doctor should order tests (such as liver function, EKG) before you start this medication and while you are taking it.
