Lumakras Frequently Asked Questions

Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking sotorasib and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. Swallow the tablets whole. Do not chew, crush, or split the tablets.

If you have trouble swallowing the tablet whole, place the tablet into a cup with half a glass of non-carbonated, room-temperature water (4 ounces/120 milliliters). Stir or swirl the cup for about 3 minutes until the tablet breaks into small pieces. The tablet will not completely dissolve. Do not crush the tablet or heat the mixture. Drink all of the mixture, without chewing, right away or within 2 hours. After drinking the mixture, rinse the cup with another half a glass of water (4 ounces/120 milliliters) and drink the rinse water to make sure you are getting all of the drug. If you are not drinking the mixture right away, make sure to stir the mixture right before drinking.

The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not increase your dose or use this drug more often or for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase.

If you vomit after taking a dose, do not take another dose. Take your next dose at your regular scheduled time.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.

Medications which reduce or block stomach acid (such as proton pump inhibitors/PPIs, H2 blockers, antacids) may reduce the absorption of sotorasib, making it work less well. Avoid taking PPIs (such as omeprazole, lansoprazole) and H2 blockers (such as famotidine, ranitidine) while using this medication. If you take antacids, take this medication at least 4 hours before or at least 10 hours after taking the antacid.
