Uses of Geftinat Tablet
Geftinat 250 mg tablet is indicated as monotherapy for the treatment of patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
How Geftinat Tablet Works
Geftinat 250 mg Tablet is an anti-cancer medication that interferes with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body. It works by targeting and blocking epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase. In some cancers, this receptor is overactive, causing cells to grow and divide too fast. By inhibiting EGFR, Geftinat prevents the uncontrolled growth of cells that contributes to tumor growth. Your oncology team will test your tumor for this abnormality, which must be present in order to receive the medication.
How to Use Geftinat Tablet
Geftinat 250 mg comes as a tablet to take by mouth once daily with or without food. Try to take Geftinat at around the same time every day. Take the tablet whole, do not break, crush or chew. If you cannot swallow Geftinat tablet whole, you can place them in 4-8 ounces of water, stir, and allow to dissolve, which may take 15-20 minutes. You should drink the mixture right away, add another 4-8 ounces of water to the container and drink it to be sure you’ve gotten all the medication.
It is important to make sure you are taking the correct amount of medication every time. Before every dose, check that what you are taking matches what you have been prescribed.
