Were you looking for information about Tykerb? Tycerb is a common misspelling of Tykerb.
Tykerb® is a prescription medicine used for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer in people who have unsuccessfully tried other options. It is used in combination with another medication to slow down the growth of cancer cells.
Tykerb comes in tablet form and is usually taken once a day. Possible side effects include vomiting, rash, and diarrhea. Because some people are more likely to experience side effects, it's important to tell your healthcare provider about all other drugs you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements) and any other medical conditions you have, like liver or kidney disease.
(Click Tykerb for more information on how the drug works, what you should know before starting treatment, and when and how to take it. You can also click any of the links in the box to the right for specific information.)
