Avoid taking an herbal supplement containing St. John's wort at the same time you are taking abiraterone.
This medicine can pass into body fluids (including urine, feces, vomit, semen, vaginal fluid).

Wash soiled clothing and linens separately from other laundry.
Body fluids should not be handled by a woman who is pregnant or who may become pregnant. Use condoms during sexual activity to avoid exposure to body fluids.
