Osimertinib is used in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer.

How Osimertinib works?
Osimertinib is an anti-cancer medication. It works by blocking the action of the abnormal protein that signals cancer cells to multiply. This helps to stop or slow the spread of cancer cells.
Common side effects of Osimertinib
Diarrhea, Stomatitis (Inflammation of the mouth), Rash, Loss of appetite
How should I take Osimertinib?
You should take Osimertinib exactly as directed by your doctor. It should be started by doctors who have experience in administering cancer medicines. Take it once a day with or without food. Do not drink grapefruit juice or eat grapefruit during your treatment with Osimertinib, as the chances of side effects may be more.
What should I do if I forget a dose?
If you miss a dose of Osimertinib by less than 12 hours, take the missed dose as soon as you remember it and then take the next dose at the scheduled time. However, if you miss a dose by more than 12 hours, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.

    Osimertinib is a drug that is used to treat non-small cell lung cancer with an aberrant "EGFR" gene. This gene will be tested for by your doctor. When cancer has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic) or has returned after surgery, osimertinib may be prescribed. In adults, osimertinib is used to help prevent a certain type of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) from returning after the tumor(s) have been surgically removed. It's also used as a first-line treatment for individuals with a specific type of NSCLC that's spread to other places of the body. Osimertinib is also used to treat some forms of NSCLC that have progressed to other regions of the body in individuals who have failed to respond to previous types of chemotherapy. Osimertinib belongs to the kinase inhibitor class of drugs. It works by preventing the aberrant protein from causing cancer cells to multiply. This may help decrease tumours by halting or slowing the spread of cancer cells.
