About Ibrance

Ibrance is considered a kinase inhibitor, which interferes with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body.

Ibrance is used to treat HR-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic breast cancer) in men and women. Ibrance is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation as well as under different brand names, including palbociclib.

Ibrance may be prescribed as a capsule or tablet. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage prescribed.

If you're prescribed Ibrance, be sure to complete the full course of the cancer medicine unless your doctor specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, the cancer medicine may not fully treat your breast cancer.

Ibrance uses

There are several FDA-approved uses for Ibrance, but it may also be used off-label to treat other conditions. Your online healthcare provider may prescribe it for any of the following common reasons.

It’s also possible that healthcare professionals may prescribe it for other reasons not listed here. If you have questions about why a medication is prescribed, ask your online doctor or pharmacist.

  • Breast cancer

    Ibrance is FDA-approved to treat breast cancer in men and women. Ibrance is used to treat adult patients with hormone receptor-positive, human epidermal growth factor 2-negative advanced breast cancer or metastatic breast cancer.

    Ibrance may be prescribed in combination with an aromatase inhibitor in postmenopausal women or men, or with fulvestrant in patients with disease progression following endocrine therapy.
