What Is Lynparza?
Olaparib (pronounced [oh LAP a rib]) is also known by the brand name, Lynparza. It is an antineoplastic (anticancer) drug that belongs to a class called PARP inhibitors, and it may be prescribed alone or in combination with other anticancer drugs like bevacizumab (Avastin).
Lynparza is a type of chemotherapy.
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 Lynparza Used?
Lynparza has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat a wide variety of cancers, including breast, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, and other cancers. It can be prescribed in combination with other chemotherapy agents, depending on the severity and type of cancer.
Lynparza is only available in the form of tablets or capsules and must be administered orally. The tablets are only available in two strengths: 100 mg and 150 mg. The capsules, on the other hand, are only available in 50 mg strength. The tablets are elliptical or oval-shaped.
The 100 mg tablet is yellow with “OP 100” imprinted on one side. The 150 mg tablet is green with “OP 150” imprinted on one side. The capsules are white and marked with “Olaparib 50 mg,” followed by a logo.

Directions for Use
Lynparza may be taken with or without food. When taking the pill, swallow it whole; do not break, crush, chew, open, or allow it to be dissolved in your mouth. Do not substitute capsules for tablets without consulting with your physician. Lynparza is typically dosed twice a day, and the dose is dependent on the cancer type and severity. Verify the correct dose and frequency with your provider.
If you accidentally miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with the next scheduled dose. Do not take extra doses to make up for a missed dose.
Store capsules in a cool, dry place at room temperature and ensure the bottle is tightly closed.
