Uses
Vinblastine is used in the treatment of various cancers to slow or stop the growth of cancer cells.

Storage
  • Refrigerate between 36 and 46 F (between 2.2 and 7.8 degrees C).
  • This drug may be stored for 30 days after the first withdrawal.


How To Use
  • HOW TO USE THIS MEDICATION: This is a potent medication.
  • Use it exactly as prescribed.
  • Tell your doctor or nurse immediately if you experience pain, burning or redness at the place where injected.
  • Unless your doctor instructs you otherwise, drink plenty of fluids while taking this medication.
  • This helps your kidneys to remove the drug from your body and avoid some of the side effects.

Side Effects
  • Nausea, vomiting, and muscle pain are common side effects.
  • Not eating before your treatment may help relieve vomiting.
  • Changes in diet such as eating several small meals or limiting activity may help lessen some of these effects.
  • In some cases, drug therapy may be necessary to prevent or relieve nausea and vomiting.
  • Temporary hair loss is another common side effect; normal hair growth should return after treatment has ended.
  • Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms: fever, chills, cough, lower back or side pain, painful or difficult urination, joint pain, swelling of feet or lower legs, sores in mouth or on lips, unusual bleeding or bruising, black, tarry stools, blood in urine or stools, small red spots on the skin, dizziness, pain in the jaw, pain or numbness in fingers or toes, pain in testicles, double vision or difficulty walking.

  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Tell your doctor your medical history, especially of all illnesses, kidney or liver problems, of previous cancer therapy and of any allergies.
  • Because this medication lowers your resistance to fight illness, avoid getting near people with the flu and with those who have recently received oral polio vaccine.
  • For this same reason, avoid touching your eyes or inside your nose without first washing your hands.
  • Use caution with sharp objects like safety razors or nail cutters and avoid activities such as contact sports to lower your risk of getting cut, bruised or injured.
  • Do not have immunizations/vaccinations without consent of your doctor.

  • Consult your doctor.

Missed Dose
  • Because you should not miss any doses, it is very important you remain under close supervision of your doctor.

Drug Interactions
  • Tell your doctor of all medicines you may use (both prescription and nonprescription) especially of hydantoins (e.g., phenytoin), mibefradil, aspirin and NSAIDs (e.g., ibuprofen), cisplatin, carboplatin, "azole" antifungals (e.g., itraconazole) or aminoglycosides (e.g., gentamicin).
