Description
Leukeran, also known as Chlorambucil, is useful in the treatment of certain cancers.
Drug Uses

Leukeran is useful in the treatment of certain cancers. It may also be used for certain other conditions as and when prescribed by your medical practitioner. Being an alkylating agent it binds to the RNA or DNA of some of the cancer cells. This in turn helps in slowing down their growth as well as reproduction.

Usage

Medication must always be taken as advised by your medical practitioner/physician. If you are unsure, then please contact your physician for precise instructions. On the other hand, the medicine label usually contains dosage instructions which also may be followed.

Do not take Leukeran if you have been suffering from vomiting or are feeling nauseated.

A full glass of water when taken with Leukeran always ensures better absorption.

Medications are prescribed according to a dosage schedule which must be completed in order to reap the benefits of the treatment. Lapsed schedules render Leukeran ineffective. So, never stop in between unless advised by your physician.
