What is Piqray?

Piqray (generic name Alpelisib) tablets are used along with an anti-cancer medicine called Faslodex (generic name fulvestrant) to treat certain types of breast cancer in men and postmenopausal women.

What is Piqray used for?

Your doctor will test your breast cancer tumor for a specific gene. If your doctor finds changes in the PIK3CA gene, then Piqray can help slow the growth of your cancer and possibly help shrink your tumor.

It's used in people with hormone receptor (HR)-positive, HER-2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor-2) negative advanced breast cancer. It can also be used in people with metastatic breast cancer (or cancer which has spread to other parts of the body) with a mutation in the PIK3CA gene. People whose disease has progressed on or after endocrine therapy may also benefit from Piqray.

What are the side effects of Piqray?

Common Piqray side effects include:

  • Changes in fertility (or trouble becoming pregnant)
  • Rash
  • Feeling sick to your stomach or nauseous
  • Becoming tired or weak
  • Loss of appetite
  • Throwing up
  • Sores in the mouth
  • Hair loss

  • Changes to some blood tests

Less common Piqray side effects include:

  • Serious allergic reaction (including fever, rash, fast heartbeat, flushed skin, or problems breathing)
  • Serious skin reaction (may involve peeling skin, blisters on lips/eyes/mouth, red skin, fever or rash that continues to get worse)
  • High blood sugar (Piqray may cause dry mouth, thirst, frequent urination, and increased appetite despite weight loss)
  • Breathing problems (Piqray can trigger lung problems which leave you with a cough, shortness of breath, or chest pain)
  • Severe diarrhea (Piqray may cause upset stomach and diarrhea which results in water loss leading to dehydration or kidney problems)

Call your doctor immediately if you think you are experiencing Piqray side effects.
