    Niraparib is used to help people who have completely or partially responded to other chemotherapy medications maintain their response to certain types of ovarian (female reproductive organs where eggs are formed), fallopian tube (tube that transports eggs released by the ovaries to the uterus), and peritoneal (layer of tissue that lines the stomach) cancer (s). It's also used to treat cancers of the ovary, fallopian tubes, or peritoneum that have progressed after three or more chemotherapy treatments. Niraparib belongs to the group of drugs known as poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors. It functions by destroying cancer cells. Niraparib is a once-daily pill to be taken by mouth. Niraparib should be taken at the same time each day, with or without food. If you get nausea after taking niraparib, take it at bedtime once a day.
