Are you in control?

More control is possible

If somatostatin analog (SSA) injections aren’t giving you the control you need, you’re not alone. Over two-thirds of patients say their current treatments don’t do enough to control their Carcinoid Syndrome diarrhea. Even if you know what triggers it, what foods to avoid in your diet, and how to stay on track with SSA treatment, you may still have diarrhea due to an overproduction of serotonin.

If Carcinoid Syndrome diarrhea has forced you to redefine everyday life, maybe you’ve hit your breaking point. This doesn’t have to be your normal. See how adding XERMELO can help.

When you ask for XERMELO by name, you are more likely to receive a prescription. So ask your doctor if XERMELO could be right for you.

“I wish my doctor realized how hard this is.”

Don’t just listen, speak up. It’s important to talk to a neuroendocrine tumor (NET) specialist about exactly how Carcinoid Syndrome diarrhea impacts your life.

Try these strategies for talking to your doctor about the control you need.

  • Prioritize: Talk about your breaking point at the start of the visit
  • Be Specific: Explain how Carcinoid Syndrome diarrhea impacts you. How does it affect your eating? Your sleeping? Your social activities?
  • Ask Questions: Ask about what Carcinoid Syndrome diarrhea treatments may help
