Perform ECG prior to initiation and repeat during treatment as indicated. Correct electrolyte abnormalities prior to initiation and monitor; interrupt if QTcF ≥480msec; discontinue if QT prolongation does not resolve. Serious hemorrhage. Obtain CBC prior to initiation; monitor weekly during therapy or more as indicated. Monitor for infections; treat and consider interruption or discontinuation if diagnosed.
