Tarceva contains the generic ingredient erlotinib, which belongs to the class of drugs called tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Tarceva is used to treat non-small cell lung cancer.
Doctors prescribe Tarceva to treat non-small cell lung cancer at an advanced stage after at least one regimen of chemotherapy has not been successful in treating the cancer.
Epidermal growth factor receptor is a protein found on the surface of many cancer cells. Tarceva works by attaching to the tyrosine kinase enzyme, which prevents the epidermal growth factor from activating, and stops cancer cells from growing and multiplying.
The recommended daily dose of Tarceva is 150mg taken orally with a glass of plain water. Take Tarceva at least one hour before or two hours after meal.
These may not be all the side effects of Tarceva 150mg.
If you are allergic to the active medicinal ingredient, erlotinib, or any of the other ingredients in the formulation, do not take Tarceva.
You must have a confirmed activating mutation of the EGFR-TK before starting first-line Tarceva monotherapy. Let your doctor know if you have cataracts, wear contact lenses, have liver or kidney problems, ulcers or lung disease before starting this medication.
Store this medication at room temperature, away from the reach of children. Discard after the expiry date.
Lung cancer is a malignant tumour that starts in the cells of the lung. Depending on the type of cell where the cancer began, lung cancers are divided into non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Non-small cell lung cancer usually starts in the glandular cells on the outer part of the lung (adenocarcinomas). Non–small cell lung cancer can also start in flat, thin cells called squamous cells, which line the large airways (squamous cell carcinoma). There are other types of non-small cell lung cancers, which are less common. Symptoms may include a cough that does not go away, fatigue, coughing up blood, loss of appetite, and losing weight without trying. Non-small cell lung cancer is divided into five stages depending on its growth and spread. Stage 0 means that the cancer has not spread beyond the inner lining of the lung. Stage IV means that the cancer has spread to other organs of the body, such as the other lung, brain or liver.
