Vandetanib Drug for Thyroid Cancer

Available in the form of a tablet, vandetanib (Caprelsa®) is a prescription drug used to treat thyroid cancer. The medication is approved to treat medullary thyroid cancer that has spread just beyond the thyroid or more distantly to other areas of the body and cannot be treated with surgery. It is used in people who are having symptoms or whose thyroid cancer is progressing.
 
Vandetanib is usually taken once a day, at the same time each day. Generally, people take it until benefits are no longer seen or until potentially serious or intolerable side effects occur.
