CAPRELSA (kap-rel-sah) is a prescription medicine for adults. It is the first FDA-approved medication to treat advanced medullary thyroid cancer (MTC).
CAPRELSA is used to treat MTC that cannot be removed by surgery or that has spread to other parts of the body, and the tumors are growing or causing symptoms. Because of the risks associated with CAPRELSA, your health care provider should carefully consider whether to prescribe CAPRELSA for you if your tumors are growing slowly or if you are not having symptoms. It takes a long time to get rid of CAPRELSA from
your body and you may be at risk for side effects related to CAPRELSA after you have stopped your treatment.
