Do not chew, crush or split tablets. Do not ingest if lorlatinib tablets are broken, cracked, or otherwise not intact. Take lorlatinib at the same time each day. If a lorlatinib dose is missed, then take the missed dose unless the next dose is due within four hours. Do not take two doses at the same time to make up for a missed dose.
