Xalkori should be stored at room temperature, in its original container. Keep this and all other medicines out of the reach of children and pets.
What If I Miss a Dose?
If you miss a dose of Xalkori, take it as soon as you remember. If it is less than six hours until your next dose, however, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
Xalkori capsules come in 200-mg and 250-mg strengths.
