How To Use
  • Take gefitinib by mouth once daily, with or without food, or as directed.
  • Medications which reduce or completely block stomach acid (e.g., proton pump inhibitors/PPIs, H2 blockers, antacids) may decrease the absorption of gefitinib.
  • This could decrease the effectiveness of gefitinib.
  • Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any of these medications.
  • Use Iressa regularly in order to get the most benefit from it.
  • To help you remember, use it at the same time each day.

Side Effects
  • Diarrhea, rash, acne, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite or unusual weakness may occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist immediately.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: eye irritation/pain, swelling of the ankles/feet.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these highly unlikely but very serious side effects occur: stomach/abdominal pain, extreme fatigue, dark urine, yellowing eyes/skin.
  • Gefitinib may cause rare (possibly fatal) lung disease (interstitial lung disease-ILD).
  • Tell your doctor immediately if you develop trouble breathing, cough or fever.
  • If you have persistent diarrhea or skin rashes contact your doctor.
  • Your doctor may temporarily stop gefitinib (for up to 14 days) which may help reverse those side effects.
  • Treatment is then resumed with the same dosage.

  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: severe rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, trouble breathing.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

  • Gefitinib is not recommended for use during pregnancy.
  • It may cause fetal harm.
  • Consult your doctor for more details.
  • It is not known whether Iressa passes into breast milk.
  • Due to the potential risk to the infant, breast-feeding while using gefitinib is not recommended.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you remember.
  • If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not double the dose to catch up.

Drug Interactions
  • Before using Iressa, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription products you may use, especially of: blood thinners (warfarin), drugs which reduce stomach acid (e.g., ranitidine, cimetidine, famotidine, omeprazole, lansoprazole, rabeprazole), certain liver enzyme inhibitors (CYP 3A4 inhibitors such as ketoconazole, itraconazole, erythromycin, clarithromycin).
  • Some liver enzyme inducer medications such as rifamycins (e.g., rifampin, rifabutin), St.
