Uses

How To Use
  • APPEARANCE: Injectable. Medicines used to treat cancer are very strong and can have many side effects.
  • Before receiving this medicine, make sure you understand all the risks and benefits.
  • It is important for you to work closely with your doctor during your treatment. Your doctor will prescribe your exact dose and tell you how often it should be given.
  • This medicine is given through a needle placed in one of your veins. You will receive this medicine while you are in a hospital or cancer treatment center.
  • A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this medicine. You may also receive medicines to help prevent nausea and vomiting. Do not get this medicine on your skin or in your eyes.
  • This medicine can be very harmful if it comes into contact with these areas, or if any medicine leaks out of the IV needle.
  • Tell your caregiver right away if you feel any burning, pain, redness, blistering, or swelling while you are receiving this medicine.

Side Effects
  • Call your doctor right away if you notice any of these side effects: Allergic reaction: Itching or hives, swelling in your face or hands, swelling or tingling in your mouth or throat, chest tightness, trouble breathing. Diarrhea, uncontrollable nausea or vomiting. Burning, pain, redness, swelling, blistering, or skin changes where the needle is placed. Fever, chills, cough, sore throat, and body aches. Painful sores or white patches in your mouth or throat. Pain in your upper stomach. Severe swelling, redness, or peeling skin on your hands or feet. Unusual bleeding or bruising.
