Storage
  • If you have your treatments at a clinic, the staff at the clinic will keep your medicine there. If you have your treatments at home, you may need to store your medicine.
  • Keep the IV liquid in the refrigerator.
  • Do not freeze. Keep all medicine away from children. If you have your treatments at home, you should be given a special container for the used needles, medicine bag or bottles, and tubes.
  • Keep it where children or pets cannot reach it.


How To Use
  • APPEARANCE: Injectable. This medicine, like all medicines used to treat cancer, is very strong.
  • Make sure you understand why you are getting it and what the risks and benefits of treatment are.
  • It is important for you to work closely with your doctor. Your doctor will prescribe your exact dose and tell you how often it will be given. Your medicine will be given through a tube put in one of your veins, usually in your arm, wrist, or hand and sometimes in your chest.
  • This is called an intravenous (in-tra-VEEN-us), or IV. A nurse or other person trained to give cancer drugs will give your treatments. Do not get the medicine on your skin.
  • If this happens wash the area with soap and water, and tell your caregiver.

Side Effects
  • Call your doctor right away if you notice any of these side effects: Fever, chills, or sore throat Unusual bleeding or bruising Severe stomach pain, blood in stools Trouble breathing, swelling in feet or legs Hives, rash, or severe itching Pain, redness, or swelling where the IV is given

  • If you miss a dose, call your doctor, home health caregiver, or the clinic where you get your treatments for instructions.

Drug Interactions
  • Do not breastfeed while you are being given this medicine. If you start to have pain, redness, or swelling where the IV is given tell your health caregiver right away. You may get infections more easily while you are getting idarubicin.
  • Stay away from crowds or people with colds, flu, or other infections. This medicine may make your mouth sore and irritated.
  • Brush your teeth with a soft-bristle toothbrush or mouth swab. Idarubicin can cause nausea and vomiting.
