Avoid concomitant use of moderate CYP3A inducers during QINLOCK treatment.
If a moderate CYP3A inducer cannot be avoided, increase the QINLOCK dosing frequency from the recommended dose of 150 mg once daily to 150 mg twice daily during the co-administration period. Monitor for clinical response and tolerability. If the concomitant moderate CYP3A inducer is discontinued, resume QINLOCK dosage back to 150 mg once daily 14 days after the discontinuation of the moderate CYP3A inducer. [see Drug Interactions (7.1) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
