Osimertinib is used to treat metastatic (cancer that has already spread) non-small cell lung cancer in patients who have certain types of abnormal epidermal growth factor (EGFR) genes. This medicine is also used to help prevent non-small cell lung cancer from coming back in patients whose tumor has been removed by surgery. It is also used in patients who have already received an EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor and it has stopped working. Your doctor will perform a test to check for the EGFR gene before you use this medicine.
Osimertinib belongs to the group of medicines called antineoplastics (cancer medicines). It works by interfering with the growth of cancer cells, which are eventually destroyed.
This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.
