JADENU® (deferasirox) tablets

JADENU Helps Reduce Iron Levels

If your doctor has prescribed JADENU® (deferasirox) tablets it means that your doctor has determined that you have chronic iron overload (IO). That means that there is too much iron in your blood.

Starting JADENU

If you have been prescribed JADENU, it is because your doctor has determined that you have consistently high serum ferritin levels (≥1000 mcg/L). Multiple blood transfusions may put you at risk for chronic IO. Conditions that require frequent transfusions include:

  • Sickle cell disease
  • Beta-thalassemia
  • Lower-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)
  • Other types of anemias


Even without transfusions, people with non–transfusion-dependent thalassemia (NTDT) can get chronic IO. NTDT is an inherited disorder that can cause extra iron to build up in the body over time.


JADENU is an iron chelation therapy.

  • Iron chelation is a process that helps get rid of extra iron that has built up in your body due to blood transfusions or NTDT
  • Both JADENU and iron leave your body when you go to the bathroom



  • Once a day
  • Anytime, anywhere
  • JADENU tablets should be swallowed once a day with water or other liquids (preferably at the same time each day)
  • With a light meal (containing less than 7% fat and about 250 calories) or on an empty stomach
  • Exactly as your doctor prescribes



  • Don't take JADENU at the same time you take any aluminum-containing antacids
  • JADENU dosing is based on how much you weigh
    • Keep your doctor informed of any weight changes
    • Your dose may need to be adjusted based on weight loss or gain


Ask your doctor or nurse about how JADENU can help remove excess iron from your body to protect your heart and liver.
