What Is Tagrisso?

Osimertinib is also known by the brand name, Tagrisso. It is a type of chemotherapy and an antineoplastic (anticancer) 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. Tagrisso is not considered a hazardous agent.

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 Tagrisso Used?

Tagrisso has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a first-line agent to treat non-small cell lung cancer.

Available Formulations

Tagrisso is only available in the form of tablets and must be administered orally. The tablets are only available in two strengths: 40 mg and 80 mg. The 40 mg tablets are round and imprinted with “AZ 40.” The 80 mg tablets are oval and imprinted with “AZ 80.” Tagrisso is typically dosed once a day, and the dose is dependent on the cancer type or severity and other factors. Verify the correct dose and frequency with your provider.

What To Avoid While Taking Tagrisso

While on Tagrisso therapy, you must follow some precautions. Always tell your physician about any medications you are already taking. Do not take any drug or medicine (even herbals or over-the-counter medications) without prior consent from your physician or pharmacist, as they may have some significant interactions with Tagrisso.

Avoid taking this medication with any other drugs that may prolong cardiac QTc intervals such as ziprasidonedronedarone, and posaconazole. QTc prolongation is when the heart’s electrical system takes longer than normal to recharge between beats, which may be detected through a periodic ECG.

Avoid any kind of immunization or vaccination without prior consent from your physician. Driving and other activities that require clear vision must be avoided while taking this drug.

Directions for Use

Tagrisso may be taken with or without food. When taking the tablet, swallow it whole; do not break, crush, chew, or allow it to dissolve in your mouth. 

For patients with difficulty swallowing solids, this medication can be dispersed in 2 ounces (60 ml) of noncarbonated water. Stir until dispersed into small pieces (it will not completely dissolve) and immediately drink. Rinse the container with another 4 to 8 ounces (120-240 mL) of water and immediately drink again. Do not crush or heat the tablet.

Missed Dose

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.

Storage

Store tablets in a cool, dry place at room temperature and ensure the bottle is tightly closed.
