BRUKINSA Interactions:

Concomitant moderate or strong CYP3A inducers may reduce zanubrutinib efficacy (eg, rifampin, efavirenz); avoid use. Concomitant moderate or strong CYP3A inhibitors may increase risk of toxicities (eg, itraconazole, fluconazole, erythromycin); reduce zanubrutinib dose (see Adults). Increased risk of hemorrhage with concomitant antiplatelets or anticoagulants; monitor.
