Ease of use and lower costs may be on the horizon for Sutent patients who are currently on a 37.5 milligram prescription. Available now, Pfizer has released a new 37.5 milligram tablet for Sutent patients needing to scale down from their highest 50 milligram dosage. Previous to this, patients on the 37.5 mg dosage needed to buy and take a combination of 12.5 and 25 mg tablets to meet their prescription requirements. Changes to the Sutent packaging also include the additions of skin and mouth reactions to the warning label as side effects that may be experienced. As always, please consult with your doctor about any changes to your treatment plan, like Sutent dosage. Full information on Sutent is available at www.sutent.com.
