Tips for taking CIBINQO
Choose a time and stick with it
Take CIBINQO once each day, around the same time. Consider taking CIBINQO at the same time you regularly do something else, like brushing your teeth. Be sure to follow the instructions for taking your medication.
Another tip: Set a daily reminder on your phone to take CIBINQO.
Swallow CIBINQO whole with water
Do not crush, split, or chew the pills.
You can take CIBINQO with or without food
If you experience nausea, it sometimes helps to take medicine with food.
In case you missed a dose
Take your missed dose right away. If it’s less than 12 hours before your next dose, skip it and take the next dose at your scheduled time.

CIBINQO works with or without prescribed topical steroid medications (lotions, creams, or ointments applied to your skin) for eczema.
CIBINQO comes in multiple dosage strengths
The recommended starting dose of CIBINQO is 100 mg. If the 100 mg dose isn't working well after 3 months, your doctor may increase your dose to 200 mg. If the 200 mg dose isn't working well, your doctor may advise you to stop CIBINQO.
Testing and monitoring
CIBINQO may affect certain blood counts, so it's important to have lab tests done before and during treatment.
- Blood tests are used to monitor your blood cell count and adjust treatment, if necessary
- Lab tests are used to help evaluate your health and screen for infections
What kind of tests should I expect?
Before starting CIBINQO, your doctor will evaluate your overall health and medical history to determine if CIBINQO is right for you. Your doctor will perform a few tests, including:
- Checking a complete blood count (CBC)
- Screening for infections, including tuberculosis (TB) and hepatitis B and C
Your doctor will also check to ensure your vaccines are up-to-date.
Why do I need to take these tests?
You should not take CIBINQO if your blood cell counts are too low, or if you have active TB, hepatitis B or C, or a serious infection. If needed, your doctor may stop your CIBINQO treatment for a period of time because of changes seen in your blood test results. Your doctor should also check your blood cholesterol levels to see if the amount of fat in your blood has increased.
How often will I be tested?
- Before you start treatment
- Four weeks after starting CIBINQO
- Four weeks after any increase in dose
Based on your health and medical history, your doctor may order other blood tests as needed.
What about after I start treatment?
After you have started CIBINQO, your doctor will continue to monitor your health. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Monitoring you for signs and symptoms of infections, including TB and hepatitis B and C
- Checking for changes in blood cell counts and cholesterol levels
- Performing periodic skin checks, as there is an increased risk of skin cancer with JAK inhibitors
