Indications & Dosage

Lapatinib 250mg, sold as Hertab 250 mg, is a generic kinase inhibitor that is prescribed for the treatment of breast cancer. Specifically, it is used for the following:

  • Advanced or metastatic breast cancer patients with tumors that overexpress human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) and who have previously received therapy including an anthracycline, a taxane, and trastuzumab. These patients can be treated with capecitabine. It's important to note that treatment with lapatinib in combination with capecitabine should only be initiated if the patient has experienced disease progression on trastuzumab.
  • Postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer that overexpresses the HER2 receptor and for whom hormonal therapy is indicated can be treated with Letrozole. It's worth noting that the efficacy of lapatinib in combination with an aromatase inhibitor has not been compared to a trastuzumab-containing chemotherapy regimen for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer.

Lapatinib Dosage

For the treatment of advanced or metastatic breast cancer, the recommended dose of Lapatinib is 1,250 mg (equivalent to 5 tablets) taken orally once daily continuously on Days 1-21, in combination with capecitabine 2,000 mg/m2/day taken orally in 2 doses about 12 hours apart on Days 1-14, in a repeating 21-day cycle.

For hormone receptor-positive, HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer, the recommended dose of Lapatinib is 1,500 mg (equivalent to 6 tablets) taken orally once daily continuously, in combination with letrozole at a dose of 2.5 mg taken orally once daily. Lapatinib should be taken at least one hour before or one hour after a meal, while capecitabine should be taken with food or within 30 minutes after food. It is important to take Lapatinib as a single daily dose and not divide the dose.

The dose of Lapatinib should be adjusted in case of cardiac and other toxicities, severe hepatic impairment, diarrhea, and CYP3A4 drug interactions.
