重要的安全信息

  • Visudyne.(verteporfin for injection) should not be used if you have a condition known as porphyria, or if you are allergic to it or any of its components.
  • Avoid exposure of skin and eyes to direct sunlight or bright indoor light for 5 days after treatment with Visudyne by wearing protective clothes and dark sunglasses. A UV sunscreen will not offer enough protection for your skin. Wear a wristband to remind you to do this. However, do not stay in totally dark areas. You should expose your skin to regular indoor and/or indirect light because doing so will help inactivate the drug in your skin.
  • In clinical studies, the most common side effects were injection site reactions (such as pain, redness, irritation, and swelling) or changes in vision (including blurred vision and flashes of light). Tell your doctor about any side effects that you may have.
  • Do not drive or use machines if you develop or have changes in vision.
