In this article, we will discuss Vandetanib (Dosage Overview). So, let’s get started.
Vandetanib is indicated for the treatment of symptomatic or progressive medullary thyroid cancer in patients with unresectable locally advanced or metastatic disease.
Use Vandetanib in patients with indolent, asymptomatic or slowly progressing disease only after careful consideration of the treatment related risks of Vandetanib.
The recommended dose of Vandetanib is 300 mg taken orally once daily until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs.
Vandetanib may be taken with or without food.
Do not take a missed dose within 12 hours of the next dose.
Do not crush Vandetanib tablets. The tablets can be dispersed in 2 ounces of water by stirring for approximately 10 minutes (will not completely dissolve). Do not use other liquids for dispersion. Swallow immediately after dispersion.
Mix any remaining residue with 4 additional ounces of water and swallow.
The dispersion can also be administered through nasogastric or gastrostomy tubes.
