Management of Pyrexia

This video is intended for patients already prescribed dafrafenib/trametinib and must only be shown to patients prescribed the drug.


This is a short video, less than 3 minutes long, which could be valuable to play for your patients taking Tafinlar (daprafenib) + Mekinist (trametinib) to help them understand and manage Pyrexia (fever).

The video covers:

  • What is Pyrexia?
  • How do I know if I have Pyrexia?
  • What should I do?
  • How to manage a fever at home?
