Afinitor tablets contain the generic medicinal ingredient everolimus, which is a type of medicine known as a protein kinase inhibitor. Afinitor is used to treat several types of cancer.
Doctors prescribe Afinitor to treat advanced breast and kidney cancers. Doctors also prescribe this medicine for certain types of cancer in the pancreas, lung, stomach and intestines. Afinitor can also be used to treat patients with a genetic condition called tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC).
Afinitor works by interfering with the pathways that signal certain cancer cells to grow. Afinitor attaches to a certain protein inside the cancer cells and blocks the action of a protein kinase called mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), which stops the cancer cells from growing.
Follow your doctor's instructions carefully. Take Afinitor tablets orally once daily, preferably in the morning. Swallow the tablets whole, with a glass of water. Do not chew or crush the tablets. Do not drink grapefruit juice or eat grapefruit, star fruit or Seville oranges. It may increase the amount of Afinitor in the blood, possibly to a harmful level.
These may not be all the side effects of Afinitor 2.5mg.
Do not take Afinitor if you are hypersensitive to everolimus or to any of the non-medicinal ingredients of this medication.
Before taking Afinitor, tell your doctor if you have certain conditions, such as an infection, liver disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, low blood cell count or kidney problems.
Keep this medication at room temperature (15°C to 30°C). Store in the original package and protect from light and moisture. Keep out of the reach and sight of children and pets.
Cancer is a group of diseases where abnormal cells multiply uncontrollably and can lump together to form a mass of tissue called a tumour. Breast cancer is cancer that forms in the cells of the breasts. Symptoms may include a breast lump, change in the size, shape or appearance of a breast, recently inverted nipple, flaking of the area of skin surrounding the nipple (areola) and redness or pitting of the skin over your breast (like the skin of an orange). There are several tests used to diagnose breast cancer, such as a mammogram or biopsy (the removal of a sample of breast cells for testing). Testing for hormone receptors is very important to determine whether the cancer will likely respond to hormonal therapy. Estrogen-receptor-positive (ER+) cancer has receptors for estrogen and progesterone-receptor-positive (PR+) cancer has progesterone receptors. Hormonal therapy includes drugs that either lower the amount of estrogen in your body or block estrogen from supporting the growth and function of breast cells. If no receptors are present, the cancer is hormone-receptor-negative and hormonal treatments are unlikely to work.
