What is Afatinib:
Afatinib is a cancer medicine that interferes with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body.
Afatinib is used to treat a certain type of non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. Afatinib is used for this condition only if your tumor has a specific genetic marker for which your doctor will test.
Afatinib is also used to treat squamous non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other parts of the body after other cancer medicine has been tried without successful treatment.
How afatinib works:
This type of drug works by blocking particular proteins on cancer cells that encourage the cancer to grow. Afatinib blocks proteins called epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFR). Cancers that have these receptors are called EGFR positive.
Between 10 and 15 people out of every 100 with non small cell lung cancer (10 to 15%) have EGFR positive cancer. Doctors check your cancer cells to see if they have the receptors before you have this treatment.
Afatinib may shrink the cancer or stop it growing for a time.
Afatinib Dosage and Usage:
Afatinib is available as blue, or white and yellow, tablets, depending on the strength. Your doctor will tell you which dose to take. You take the tablets once a day on an empty stomach. It is important to take them at least 1 hour before eating or at least 3 hours after eating.
If you find it difficult to swallow the tablets you can dissolve them in a glass of still water. Don’t use any other type of liquid. Drop the tablet into the water without crushing it. Stir it occasionally for up to 15 minutes until the tablet is broken into very small particles. Drink the liquid straight away. Then fill the glass again and drink it to make sure you take the whole dose.
It is very important that you take tablets according to the instructions your doctor or pharmacist gave you. Whether you have a full or empty stomach can affect how much of a drug gets into your bloodstream. You should take the right dose, not more or less. And never stop taking a cancer drug without talking to your specialist first.
If you accidentally take too much afatinib, see a doctor or go to a hospital straight away. If you forget to take a dose of afatinib and your next dose is due after more than 8 hours, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If the next dose is due in less than 8 hours, skip the missed dose and take the next dose at the usual time. Don't take a double dose to make up for the missed one.
You usually continue taking afatinib for as long as it works, unless it causes bad side effects.
Do not use afatinib if you are pregnant. It could harm the unborn baby. Tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant during treatment. Use effective birth control to avoid pregnancy while you are using this medication and for at least 2 weeks after your treatment ends.
