Evermil is a medication used to treat certain types of cancer, such as renal cell carcinoma and breast cancer. The active ingredient in Evermil is Everolimus, which works by blocking the action of an enzyme called mTOR, which is involved in the growth and spread of cancer cells. Evermil is manufactured by Glenmark (Onkos) Pharmaceuticals Ltd. and is available in the form of tablets in a pack of 10 tablets, with a strength of 10 mg.
HOW TO USE:
This medication should be taken orally, usually once a day at the same time each day, with or without food. The dosage and frequency of administration will be determined by your doctor based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Swallow the tablets whole with a glass of water, do not crush, chew or break the tablets.
Evermil should be stored at room temperature, away from light and moisture. Keep it out of reach of children and pets. Do not store the medication in the bathroom.
Mechanism of action:
Everolimus works by inhibiting the action of an enzyme called mTOR, which regulates the growth and division of cells, including cancer cells. By blocking mTOR, Evermil slows down or stops the growth and spread of cancer cells. This medication helps to slow down the rate at which cancerous cells multiply and grow, thus preventing the cancer from getting worse.
