    • Be as specific and open as you can with your HCP by asking questions and communicating specific information about the symptoms you might be experiencing
    • Should I expect to feel better or is this just how it’s going to be?

    Ask about your options.

    • What are my treatment options?
    • What do you consider when determining the appropriate treatment
      for me?

    Ask about INREBIC.

    • What are the side effects with INREBIC that I should be aware of?
    • Are there any side effects that I experience which signal I call you
      immediately?
    • Does INREBIC interact with any other medications I’m currently
      taking?
    • What can I expect when taking INREBIC?

    • Will my health insurance pay for INREBIC?
    • What if my INREBIC prescription is denied by my health insurance?

    • Can you take notes while I listen to what the doctor says?
    • Will you help me remember to take my medication?

    Reaching out to others

    Living with myelofibrosis may be particularly stressful for patients. They might not know how to talk about it, and it may be hard to know exactly what kind of emotional support they need.

     

    • Be realistic about what you can do, and learn how to pass on the responsibilities to others if necessary
    • Tell people how they can help, as they may not be aware of what caregiving involves
    • Work with friends and family to make a plan of what needs to get done
    • Let go of tasks that can wait until later because you can always go back to them at another time
