Drug Info for tafinlar

Dabrafenib is used alone or in combination with trametinib (Mekinist) to treat certain types of melanoma (a type of skin cancer). It is also used in combination with trametinib to prevent the return of a certain type of melanoma after surgery. Dabrafenib is also used in combination with trametinib to treat certain types of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and thyroid cancer. It is also used in combination with trametinib to treat certain types of solid tumors in adults and children 6 years of age or older and to treat a certain type of glioma (a type of cancerous brain tumor) in children 1 year of age or older. Dabrafenib is in a class of medications called kinase inhibitors. It works by blocking the action of an abnormal protein that signals cancer cells to multiply. This helps stop the spread of cancer cells.

Tafinlar comes in capsule form and is used to treat melanoma that cannot be treated with surgery or has spread to other parts of the body. It is also used to treat non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. Tafinlar works by interfering with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body. Do not use Tafinlar if you are pregnant as it could harm the unborn baby. Common Tafinlar side effects may include headache, muscle or joint pain, bleeding, fever, chills and tiredness.
