What Is Erleada?

Apalutamide is also known by the brand name Erleada. It is an antineoplastic (anti-cancer) drug that belongs to a class called antiandrogen therapy.

Erleada is a type of chemotherapy that prevents cancer cells from multiplying and restricts their growth.

What Is Chemotherapy?

Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment in which certain drugs are used to kill cancerous cells. These drugs are usually cytotoxic chemical substances that are toxic to the cells, restrict their growth, prevent their division, and ultimately kill the cells.

How Is Erleada Used?

Erleada has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for males to treat many different types of prostate cancer. It can be prescribed alone or with other medications simultaneously. 

Available Formulations

At this time, Erleada is only available as a 60 mg oral tablet. 

Missed Dose

This medicine needs to be given on a fixed schedule. If you miss a dose, administer it as soon as possible on the same day and return to the normal dosing schedule the following day. Do not administer extra tablets to make up for a missed dose. If you miss more than one dose, call your doctor immediately. 

Storage

Store tablets in their original containers in a cool, dry place at room temperature and ensure the bottle is tightly closed. Keep the bottle away from direct sunlight. Do not discard desiccant in the bottle, as the medication needs to be protected from moisture.

Directions for Use

Erleada is typically dosed at 240 mg once a day. Most of the time, it is prescribed in combination with other continuous androgen deprivation therapy. Verify the correct dose and frequency with your provider. The dose should not be more or less than what is prescribed. Administer at the same time each day. Erleada may be taken with or without food. Swallow tablets whole with water; do not break, crush, chew, or allow the tablets to be dissolved in your mouth. If tablets are accidentally broken or damaged, avoid inhalation or contact with skin or mucous membranes. 

If unable to swallow tablets whole, mix tablets in 120 ml of applesauce without crushing them. Allow mixture to sit for 15 minutes, stir the mixture, let the mixture sit another 15 minutes, and then stir the mixture again until tablets are dispersed without any chunks remaining. Once dispersed, swallow the applesauce mixture immediately using a spoon. Rinse the container with 60 ml of water and immediately drink the contents. Repeat with a second 60 ml of water to ensure the entire dose is administered. Consume mixture within 1 hour of preparation; do not store for later use.
