Hello, my aunt is using erlotinib 150g. She's been taking it for a month now and is on the second month at the moment. Could you please let me know if she needs gaps in between the bottles? Many thanks.

Hello Lybrate user patient do not need a gap between the two bottles. Please take tablet everyday after food look for side effects like diarrhea, rash.
Totally agree, but do look out for the side-effects, as they can be severe.
Dear user erlotinib is a continuous form of therapy without breaks if tolerance is good.
