Recommended Dose Erlotinib

Many people undergoing treatment with erlotinib (Tarceva®) take between 100 and 150 mg a day, depending on the condition being treated. However, several factors will affect your recommended dose of erlotinib, such as whether you smoke, what type of cancer is being treated, and whether you are taking other medications. Regardless of the amount you take, erlotinib should be taken on an empty stomach, at least one hour before or two hours after food.
