How to give LENVIMA through a feeding tube:
LENVIMA should be given in feeding tubes of at least 5 french diameter (polyvinyl chloride or polyurethane tube) and at least 6 French diameter (silicone tube).
Place your daily dose, up to 5 capsules, in a syringe (approximately 20 mL capacity).
Add 3 mL of water to the syringe. Wait 10 minutes for the capsule shell (outer surface) to dissolve completely, then stir or shake the mixture for 3 minutes until capsules are fully dissolved. Do not break or crush the capsules.
Give the mixture through a feeding tube.
Next, cap the syringe and remove the plunger. Use a second syringe and add an additional 2mL of liquid to the syringe. Swirl or shake and give the mixture in the feeding tube. Repeat this step at least one time and until you cannot see any of the LENVIMA mixture left in the syringe to make sure all of the medicine is taken.
If 6 capsules are required for your daily dose, follow the above instructions using 3 capsules at a time.
LENVIMA mixture may be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator at 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C) for a maximum of 24 hours. Throw away the LENVIMA mixture if not used within 24 hours of mixing.
