What Is Lenvima?
Lenvatinib is also known by the brand name, Lenvima. It is an antineoplastic (anti-cancer) drug that belongs to a class called tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors.
TKIs work by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosine kinase, thus blocking cell growth and division. Lenvima is a type of chemotherapy.
What Is Chemotherapy?
Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment in which certain drugs are used to kill cancerous cells. Chemotherapy 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 Lenvima Used?
Lenvima has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat metastatic endometrial, hepatocellular, renal, and thyroid cancers. Lenvima can be prescribed in combination with other chemotherapy agents, such as pembrolizumab (Keytruda) or everolimus (Afinitor), depending on the severity and type of cancer.
For example, for endometrial carcinoma, it is typically given in combination with pembrolizumab, and for renal cell carcinoma, it is typically given with either everolimus or pembrolizumab.
Lenvima is only available in the form of capsules as a therapy pack and must be administered orally. The capsules are available in two different strengths: 4 mg and 10 mg. The 4 mg capsules are red and imprinted with “E LENV 4 mg” on one side. The 10 mg capsules are red and yellow and imprinted with “E LENV 10 mg” on one side.

Directions for Use
Lenvima may be taken with or without food. While taking the capsule, swallow it whole; do not break, crush, chew, or allow it to be dissolved in your mouth. Lenvima may also be dissolved in a small glass (15 ml) of water or apple juice. (Put the entire capsule in liquid and leave for 10 minutes and stir for an additional 3 minutes.) Following the ingestion of the liquid, add another small amount (15 ml) of water or apple juice into the glass, swirl, and repeat a few times to ensure all contents of the capsule have been ingested.
Lenvima is typically dosed once a day and the dose is dependent on the cancer type and severity. You should verify the correct dose and frequency with your provider.
If you have accidentally missed a dose, do not take a missed dose within 12 hours of the next dose. If within 12 hours, skip the missed dose and return to regular administration.
Store capsules in a cool, dry place at room temperature and ensure the bottle is tightly closed.
