Cyendiv Medicine Details
Nintedanib is a targeted therapy drug used to treat a type of non-small cell lung cancer called adenocarcinoma. Cyendiv 100mg is indicated in combination with docetaxel for the treatment of adult patients with locally advanced, metastatic or locally recurrent non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) of adenocarcinoma tumour histology after first-line chemotherapy
Cyendiv Nintedanib 100mg may also be used to treat other cancers as part of a clinical trial. It is best to read this information with our general information on non-small cell lung cancer.
How nintedanib works
Nintedanib stops proteins sending signals to cancer cells to grow. Nintedanib can also stop the cancer cells from developing new blood vessels. This reduces their supply of oxygen and nutrients, so that the cancer shrinks or stops growing.
When nintedanib is given
Nintedanib is used to treat a type of non-small cell lung cancer called adenocarcinoma that has spread or come back after chemotherapy. Nintedanib is given with a chemotherapy drug called docetaxel.
Taking nintedanib capsules
You take nintedanib twice a day with food. Try and keep the doses 12 hours apart. For example, you might take one capsule at 8am and another one at 8pm. Swallow the capsules whole with a glass of water. Don’t chew or open them up.
Always take nintedanib exactly as your nurse or pharmacist explained. This is important to make sure it works as well as possible for you.
When you are having nintedanib capsules and docetaxel chemotherapy, you start taking the capsules the day after chemotherapy. Do not take nintedanib on the same day as the docetaxel. You usually take nintedanib for 20 days and then you have docetaxel again. This is called a cycle of treatment.
Your doctor will talk to you about how many cycles of treatment you can have.
Your doctor may talk to you about continuing nintedanib after finishing treatment with docetaxel. In this situation, you usually take nintedanib every day for as long as it keeps the cancer under control. Your doctor may ask you to stop taking nintedanib or take a lower dose because of side effects. Always follow your doctor’s advice carefully.
There are some other important things to remember when taking your capsules:
Don’t take nintedanib if you’re allergic to peanut or soya.
If you forget a dose, just take the next dose at the usual time. Never take a double dose to make up for the one you missed.
Keep the capsules in the original package at room temperature.
Keep them safe and out of the reach of children.
Return any remaining capsules to the pharmacist if your treatment is stopped.
