Ask a nurse about XERMELO

When you sign up with TerSera NurseSupport, you’ll get a dedicated expert who can offer one-on-one help and be available to answer your questions at any time. Our specialized nurses can:

  • Help you stay on track with treatment by helping make XERMELO part of your routine
  • Easily identify Carcinoid Syndrome Diarrhea–friendly foods (you’ll receive a FREE nutrition guide, too)
  • Help you learn about the role of hormones, including serotonin, in NETs
  • Set up convenient text reminders to take your medication three times a day (optional)

When you talk to a CNE, ask about the Find Food You Love book. They can send you a copy for free! It’s filled with 100 pages of easy-to-follow dietary information and recipes designed to help people with Carcinoid Syndrome Diarrhea.

Note: TerSera Nurse Support is an informational service that is available without charge to anyone seeking support for managing with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) and/or Carcinoid Syndrome Diarrhea (CSD), or with TerSera products. No purchase or prescription is necessary. TerSera Nurse Support consists of registered nurses who are employed or contracted by TerSera Therapeutics, LLC, a manufacturer of pharmaceutical products, for the limited purpose of providing generalized information about navigating with NET and/or CSD and product information and support regarding TerSera products. Importantly, TerSera Nurse Support nurses are not your personal clinicians and do not provide any medical or clinical advice or patient-specific information. If you have questions about your medical treatment, need medical care, or are experiencing a medical concern or emergency, call your physician or treating clinician, or, in the case of an emergency, dial 911 immediately.
