Leukeran Indication

Leukeran (Chlorambucil) belongs to the group of cancer-fighting medications known as antineoplastics, and specifically to the group of antineoplastics called alkylating agents. It prevents the growth of cancer cells by interfering with the genetic material DNA, which is necessary for reproduction of cells.

Leukeran (Chlorambucil) is used to treat cancers of the blood and lymph system, such as certain types of Leukemia (e.g., Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) and certain types of lymphoma (e.g., non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia, and Hodgkin's disease).

Leukeran (Chlorambucil) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Leukeran (Chlorambucil) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Leukeran (Chlorambucil) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Leukeran (Chlorambucil) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Leukeran (Chlorambucil), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Leukeran (Chlorambucil) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Leukeran (Chlorambucil) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Leukeran (Chlorambucil) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Leukeran Dosage

The recommended dose of Leukeran (Chlorambucil) depends on the condition being treated.

For chronic lymphocytic leukemia, the usual adult starting dose is 0.15 mg per kilogram body weight per day until the total white blood cell count reaches the desired range. 4 weeks after the first course of treatment, the medication may be restarted at a dose of 0.1 mg per kilogram body weight per day.

For Hodgkin's disease, the usual dose is 0.2 mg per kilogram body weight per day for 4 to 8 weeks.

For Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, the usual dose is 0.1 mg to 0.2 mg per kilogram body weight per day for 4 to 8 weeks initially. Maintenance treatment is then started at a reduced daily dose or with intermittent courses of treatment. Leukeran (Chlorambucil) may be included as part of a combination treatment with other antineoplastic medications.

For Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia, usual dose is 0.1 mg to 0.2 mg per kilogram body weight per day initially. Maintenance treatment is then given at a reduced daily dose of 0.03 mg to 0.1 mg per kilogram body weight per day.

As well as interfering with the genetic material DNA of cancer cells, Leukeran (Chlorambucil) can interfere with some of your normal cells. This can cause a number of side effects. Keep track of any side effects and report them to your doctor as suggested in the section, "What side effects are possible with Leukeran (Chlorambucil)?"

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Leukeran (Chlorambucil) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not stop taking Leukeran (Chlorambucil) without talking with your doctor. If you vomit shortly after taking a dose of the medication, call your doctor for instructions on whether to skip that dose or to take another dose. If you miss a dose, ask your doctor for instructions. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.

Store Leukeran (Chlorambucil) in a refrigerator, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Leukeran (Chlorambucil). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Leukeran Warnings

Before you begin taking a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should take Leukeran (Chlorambucil).

Blood clotting: Leukeran (Chlorambucil) can reduce the number of platelet cells in the blood. Platelets help the blood to clot, and a shortage could make you bleed more easily. Tell your doctor of any signs that your blood is not clotting as quickly. Such symptoms may include black and tarry stools, blood in the urine, easy bruising, or cuts that won't stop bleeding.

Infection: As well as killing cancer cells, Leukeran (Chlorambucil) can reduce the number of cells that fight infection in the body (white blood cells). Avoid contact with people who have contagious infections and tell your doctor if you begin to notice signs of an infection such as fever or chills.

Kidney problems: If you have kidney problems, discuss with your doctor how Leukeran (Chlorambucil) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Leukeran (Chlorambucil), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver problems: If you have severe liver problems, discuss with your doctor how Leukeran (Chlorambucil) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Leukeran (Chlorambucil), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Secondary cancer: When used for long periods of time, Leukeran (Chlorambucil) can increase the risk of developing leukemia. If you are concerned about this, talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of using Leukeran (Chlorambucil).

Seizures: Leukeran (Chlorambucil) may increase the risk of seizures in people with a history of seizures, with nephrotic syndrome, or with a head injury. Talk to your doctor about whether any special monitoring is needed.

Surgery: If you need surgery, tell your doctor or anesthetist that you are taking Leukeran (Chlorambucil).

Pregnancy: There is a possibility of birth defects if either the man or woman is taking Leukeran (Chlorambucil) at the time of conception, or if it is taken during pregnancy. Infertility may occur with the use of Leukeran (Chlorambucil). Use effective birth control while taking Leukeran (Chlorambucil). If you become pregnant while taking Leukeran (Chlorambucil), contact your doctor immediately.
