Call your doctor right away or seek immediate medical attention if your symptoms do not improve or they become worse after using abiraterone. You can also call 800-222-1222 to reach the American Association of Poison Control Centers or use its online resource if you think you’ve used too much abiraterone. But if you have severe symptoms, call 911 (or your local emergency number) immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.


If you think it is an emergency, call 999 or find your nearest A&E
If you need help now, but it’s not an emergency go to 111.nhs.uk or call 111. Alternatively you can speak to one of our pharmacists or use the Now Patient app to make an appointment with your GP.

What should I do if I miss my dose?

There are occasions when people forget to take their medication at correct prescribed times. This may not only have an effect on potentially making the medication less effective but it may also inadvertently lead to taking doses too close together, thereby increasing the risks of side effects.

Conditions treated by abiraterone

Abiraterone is primarily used for the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (metastatic CRPC) in adult patients (prostate cancer that is resistant to medical or surgical treatments that lower testosterone and has already spread to other parts of the body) and metastatic high-risk castration-sensitive prostate cancer.

It is most commonly offered to men whose cancer has stopped responding to hormone therapy or androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). Abiraterone is often used in combination with a steroid called prednisolone or prednisone.

How does abiraterone work?

Abiraterone works by inhibiting the production of androgens (male hormones) in the body, including testosterone, which fuels the growth of prostate cancer cells. By reducing the levels of androgens, abiraterone helps slow down the progression of prostate cancer.

Forms of abiraterone available

Abiraterone is available in the form of oral tablets.

Dosage of abiraterone

The dosage of abiraterone may vary depending on the specific condition being treated and individual patient factors. It is important to follow the prescribed dosage instructions provided by the healthcare provider.

Directions for abiraterone use

Abiraterone should be taken exactly as directed by the healthcare provider. The medication is usually taken once daily on an empty stomach, either one hour before or two hours after a meal. Swallow the tablets whole with water; do not split, chew, or crush them.

Warnings and precautions for abiraterone

  • Abiraterone should be used with caution in individuals with certain medical conditions, such as liver problems or cardiovascular disease. Regular monitoring and dose adjustments may be necessary
  • It may interact with certain medications, including other medications that affect androgen levels. Inform the healthcare provider about all medications being taken including supplements
  • You may have a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test at least every two or three months while you’re taking abiraterone to check how well your treatment is working

Drug interactions

Some drugs that may interact with abiraterone include:

  • Cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6) inhibitors: drugs that inhibit the activity of the CYP2D6 enzyme, such as fluoxetine, paroxetine, and quinidine, can increase the levels of abiraterone in the body. This can lead to an increased risk of side effects
  • Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) inhibitors: medications that inhibit the activity of the CYP3A4 enzyme, such as ketoconazole, itraconazole, and ritonavir, can also increase the levels of abiraterone in the body. This can result in an increased risk of side effects
  • Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) inducers: drugs that induce the activity of the CYP3A4 enzyme, such as rifampin, phenytoin, and carbamazepine, can decrease the levels of abiraterone in the body, potentially reducing its effectiveness

Use of abiraterone during pregnancy

Abiraterone is contraindicated during pregnancy. It is important to discuss contraception and pregnancy planning with a healthcare provider before starting abiraterone. Men with female partners of childbearing age should use reliable form(s) of birth control while taking this medication and for at least 3 weeks after stopping treatment.

Use of abiraterone while breastfeeding

It is unknown whether abiraterone or its metabolites are excreted in human milk. Breastfeeding should be avoided during abiraterone treatment.
