Important Information:
Therapeutic drug monitoring may be considered to document optimal absorption when used for prophylaxis or active treatment of a fungal infection. Consider rechecking a level if the patient is unable to meet optimal nutritional intake, is receiving continuous tube feeding, is receiving a proton pump inhibitor (decreased posaconazole levels in some studies), or has mucositis, diarrhea, vomiting, GVHD, or other reason that he/she may not absorb the drug well.
