- are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if DOJOLVI passes into breast milk
- are taking a pancreatic lipase inhibitor, such as orlistat, as it may affect how well DOJOLVI works
Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
If you are taking another medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) formulation, stop taking the MCT before starting DOJOLVI
