Vinorelbine is sometimes given together with certain other medicines. If you are using a combination of medicines, it is important that you receive each one at the proper time. If you are taking some of these medicines by mouth, ask your health care professional to help you plan a way to take them at the right times.

Your doctor may want you to drink plenty of fluids, eat meals rich in fiber, or use stool softeners (laxatives) to prevent constipation.
