Rozlytrek Frequently Asked Questions

Read the Patient Information Leaflet and Instructions for Use if available from your pharmacist before you start taking entrectinib 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.

If you are taking the capsules, swallow whole. Do not crush or chew the capsules.

If you have trouble swallowing the capsules, or if you are prescribed a certain dose, your doctor may direct you to open a prescribed number of capsule(s) and mix the contents with room-temperature water or milk to make a suspension. Ask your doctor or pharmacist how much water or milk you should use to mix the capsule(s). Let the suspension sit for 15 minutes, then carefully measure the prescribed dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. Take the suspension right away, then drink water to make sure you have swallowed all of the prescribed dose. In some cases, your doctor may direct you to mix more medication than you need for a dose. Always follow your doctor's directions for how to mix your medication, but do not take more of the suspension than your doctor tells you to take. Discard any unused suspension, or any suspension that has not been used within 2 hours after preparation.

The suspension may also be given through a tube into the stomach (nasogastric or gastric tube). If you are giving this medication through a nasogastric or gastric tube, ask your health care professional for detailed instructions on how to give it.

If you are using the pellet form of this medication, open the packet(s) and sprinkle the entire contents of each packet on one or more spoonful(s) of soft food (such as applesauce, yogurt, pudding). Take the mixture right away. To avoid a bitter taste, do not crush or chew the pellets. Drink water after taking to make sure the entire dose is taken. If you are unable to take the pellets sprinkled on soft food within 20 minutes, throw away the mixture and prepare a new dose. Do not use the pellets to make a suspension. Do not give the pellets through a feeding tube.

Avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while using this medication unless your doctor or pharmacist says you may do so safely. Grapefruit can increase the chance of side effects with this medicine. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details.

The dosage is based on your medical condition, response to treatment, age, lab tests, and other medications you may be taking. Be sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Children's dosage is also based on body size.

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

If you vomit right after taking a dose, you may take another dose.

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 serious side effects will increase.

Since this drug can be absorbed through the skin and lungs and may harm an unborn baby, women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not handle this medication or breathe the dust from the capsules or pellets.
