Generic name: ENZALUTAMIDE 40mg
Dosage form: capsule
The recommended dose of XTANDI is 160 mg (two 80 mg tablets or four 40 mg tablets or four 40 mg capsules) administered orally once daily. XTANDI can be taken with or without food [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Swallow capsules or tablets whole. Do not chew, dissolve, or open the capsules. Do not cut, crush, or chew the tablets [see How Supplied/Storage and Handling (16)].
If a patient experiences a ≥ Grade 3 toxicity or an intolerable side effect, withhold dosing for one week or until symptoms improve to ≤ Grade 2, then resume at the same or a reduced dose (120 mg or 80 mg), if warranted [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1), (5.2)].
Concomitant Strong CYP2C8 Inhibitors
The concomitant use of strong CYP2C8 inhibitors should be avoided if possible. If patients must be co-administered a strong CYP2C8 inhibitor, reduce the XTANDI dose to 80 mg once daily. If co-administration of the strong inhibitor is discontinued, the XTANDI dose should be returned to the dose used prior to initiation of the strong CYP2C8 inhibitor [see Drug Interactions (7.1) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
Concomitant Strong CYP3A4 Inducers
The concomitant use of strong CYP3A4 inducers should be avoided if possible. If patients must be co-administered a strong CYP3A4 inducer, increase the XTANDI dose from 160 mg to 240 mg once daily. If co-administration of the strong CYP3A4 inducer is discontinued, the XTANDI dose should be returned to the dose used prior to initiation of the strong CYP3A4 inducer [see Drug Interactions (7.2) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
