Drug Uses

Leukeran is used for treating certain cancers. It may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor. Leukeran is an alkylating agent. It works by binding to the RNA or DNA of certain cancer cells, which helps to slow down their growth and reproduction.

How to use

This is a potent medication. Take it exactly as prescribed. 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. Do not stop taking this medication, even if you feel nauseated or experience vomiting. If you vomit shortly after a dose, or if you miss a dose, contact your doctor.

Drug Class and Mechanism

Chlorambucil is one of a drugs group, known as alkylating agents; these drugs are also known as cancer drugs, chemotherapy, antineoplastics, or "chemo". They are used in the treatment of various cancers to slow or stop the growth of cancer cells. A combination of different types of cancer drugs will often be used to achieve better results and minimize side effects.

Nausea, vomiting, or changes in menstrual period are common side effects. Taking the medication on an empty stomach with a full glass of water may help relieve vomiting.

In some cases, drug therapy may be necessary to prevent or relieve nausea and vomiting. Contact your doctor without delay if you experience any of the following symptoms: fever, chills, painful or difficult urination, easy bruising or bleeding, tarry stools, blood in urine or stools, small red spots on the skin, joint pain, swollen feet or lower legs, sores in mouth or on lips, yellow eyes or skin, cough, lower back or side pain, stomach pain, trouble walking, muscle twitching, agitation, confusion, hallucinations, weakness, paralysis.
