Before taking Lapatinib 250mg, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.

Before using Lapatinib 250mg, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: heart disease (e.g., irregular heartbeat), liver disease.

Lapatinib 250mg may cause a condition that affects the heart rhythm (QT prolongation). QT prolongation can rarely cause serious (rarely fatal) fast/irregular heartbeat and other symptoms (such as severe dizziness, fainting) that need medical attention right away.

The risk of QT prolongation may be increased if you have certain medical conditions or are taking other drugs that may cause QT prolongation. Before using Lapatinib 250mg, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all the drugs you take and if you have any of the following conditions: certain heart problems (heart failure, slow heartbeat, QT prolongation in the EKG), family history of certain heart problems (QT prolongation in the EKG, sudden cardiac death).

Low levels of potassium or magnesium in the blood may also increase your risk of QT prolongation. This risk may increase if you use certain drugs (such as diuretics/"water pills") or if you have conditions such as severe sweating, diarrhea, or vomiting. Talk to your doctor about using Lapatinib 250mg safely.

Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of Lapatinib 250mg, especially QT prolongation (see above).

Lapatinib 250mg is not recommended for use during pregnancy. It may harm an unborn baby. Therefore, it is important to prevent pregnancy while taking Lapatinib 250mg.

If you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant, tell your doctor right away.

It is not known whether Lapatinib 250mg passes into breast milk. Because of the possible risk to the infant, breast-feeding while using Lapatinib 250mg is not recommended. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

Store at room temperature away from light and moisture. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep all medications away from children and pets.

Do not flush medications down the toilet or pour them into a drain unless instructed to do so. Properly discard this product when it is expired or no longer needed. Consult your pharmacist or local waste disposal company.

Lapatinib 250mg is used together with another medication (capecitabine) to treat a certain type of breast cancer (HER2-positive) that has not responded to the standard treatment. Lapatinib 250mg may also be used together with another medication (letrozole) to treat HER2-positive breast cancer in women after menopause. It works by slowing or stopping the growth of cancer cells.

Avoid pressure on elbows, knees, and soles of feet (e.g., leaning on elbows, kneeling, taking long walks). Wear loose clothing and comfortable shoes. Depending on how severe your hand-foot syndrome is, your doctor may give you an additional medication to reduce the symptoms, or stop or delay your Lapatinib 250mg treatment.
