    Gilotrif Information

    Gilotrif dosage

    Always follow your doctor’s instructions to ensure you experience the best results. The typical dose is one tablet orally around meal times. It works best when you take it an hour before or two hours after eating. Try to take this around the same time every day as consistent use will yield the best results.

    Do not take extra doses as they will not improve your condition. You should avoid skipping doses when you feel better as cancer will continue to grow if left untreated.

    How Gilotrif works

    Afatinib is a kinase inhibitor which targets and blocks Tyrosine Kinase. Tyrosine Kinase is an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) which is overactive in certain cancers. This over activity causes the cells to grow and divide too fast. Afatinib prevents tumor growth by inhibiting EGFR and thus prevents the uncontrolled growth of cells. Your Oncologist will determine your type of tumor and it’s cause before deciding whether Afatinib is an appropriate treatment.
