What is Gilotrif prescribed for?

What is Gilotrif prescribed for?

Gilotrif is a prescription medication used to treat non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that has spread to other parts of the body. It is often used as a first-line treatment for cancerous tumors with the EGFR gene mutation.  

Gilotrif may also be prescribed to patients with squamous NSCLC that has worsened after platinum chemotherapy treatment. 

Active Ingredient 

The active ingredient in Gilotrif is afatinib, an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor. By blocking EGFR, afatinib helps to slow or stop the growth of cancer tumor cells.

Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) 

Nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a disease where cancerous cells form in the lung tissues. There are several subtypes of NSCLC including adenocarcinoma, large cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma.  

NSCLC most commonly manifests in persistent cough and breathlessness. Other symptoms may include chest pain, wheezing, hoarseness, weight loss, trouble swallowing, fatigue, and swelling of the face and/or neck. 

Major risk factors for lung cancer include smoking, a family history of cancer, and being exposed to radiation, secondhand smoke, asbestos, arsenic, or tar.

Treatment options generally depend on the subtype and stage of cancer, as well as the patient’s overall health and lung function. In most cases, lung cancer is treated with surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, and/or targeted treatment.  


*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as Prescription Care assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (Refund).

To receive a Refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 866-262-2603, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
