Mitomycin Indication

Mitomycin belongs to the group of cancer-fighting medications known as antineoplastics, and specifically to the group of antineoplastics called actinomycins. Another actinomycin is Dactinomycin.

Mitomycin kills cancer cells by interfering with their growth and reproduction. It is used alone or in combination with other antineoplastic medications, radiation, or surgery to treat certain types of stomach and Colon Cancer. It is also used to treat a certain type of cancer of the bladder.

Your doctor may have suggested Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c) for conditions other than the ones listed in these drug information articles. As well, some forms of Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are being given Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c), speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c) without consulting your doctor.

Mitomycin Dosage

The recommended dose and dosing schedule of mitomycin varies according to the specific condition being treated, the response to therapy, and other medications or treatments being used. The dose administered is also based on body size. Mitomycin is usually injected into a vein but can also be instilled intravesically (into the bladder) for treatment of bladder cancer.

When intravesicle treatment is performed, your doctor will likely advise you not to drink fluids for 12 hours prior to the procedure. The solution is usually maintained in the bladder for 2 hours. Very careful handling of Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c) is required. It is always given under the supervision of a doctor in a hospital or similar setting with access to sterile equipment for preparation.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications.

As well as interfering with the genetic material DNA of cancer cells, mitomycin can interfere with some of your normal cells. This can cause a number of side effects such as mouth sores. Mitomycin may cause nausea and vomiting, but it is important to keep using Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c) even if you feel ill.

Your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist can advise you on how to reduce the effects of nausea and vomiting. Keep track of any side effects and report them to your doctor as suggested in the section, "What side effects are possible with Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c)?"

It is important Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c) be given exactly as recommended by your doctor. If you miss an appointment to receive mitomycin, contact your doctor as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment.

Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c) should be stored at room temperature and protected from light.

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.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c). 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.

Mitomycin Warnings

Before you begin using 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 use Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c).

Blood clotting: Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c) 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. 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, Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c) can reduce the number of cells in the body that fight infection (white blood cells). Avoid contact with people who are sick especially those with contagious infections and tell your doctor if you begin to notice signs of an infection, such as fever or chills.

Kidney Disease: Mitomycin may worsen kidney disease.

Pregnancy: Use of Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c) by pregnant women has not been studied. There is a possibility of birth defect if either the man or the woman is using mitomycin at the time of conception. Effective birth control should be practiced while using Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c). If you become pregnant while taking Mitomycin (Mitomycin-c), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if mitomycin passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking mitomycin, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
