In this article, we will discuss Relugolix (Dosage Overview). So, let’s get started.
Relugolix is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with advanced prostate cancer.
Initiate treatment of Relugolix with a loading dose of 360 mg on the first day and continue treatment with a 120 mg dose taken orally once daily at approximately the same time each day. Relugolix can be taken with or without food. Instruct patients to swallow tablets whole and not to crush or chew tablets. Advise patients to take a missed dose of Relugolix as soon as they remember. If the dose was missed by more than 12 hours, patients should not take the missed dose and resume with the next scheduled dose.
If treatment with Relugolix is interrupted for greater than 7 days, restart Relugolix with a loading dose of 360 mg on the first day, and continue with a dose of 120 mg once daily.
In patients treated with GnRH receptor agonists and antagonists for prostate cancer, treatment is usually continued upon development of nonmetastatic or metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer.
