    Ways of Intake and Overdose

    When choosing the regimen and doses in each individual case, you should be guided by special data. The drug is used orally. If swallowing is difficult, the capsule can be opened. Pour the contents into a glass of water and immediately drink it. You should take a fairly large amount of fluid during treatment with the drug.

    Important Instructions

    When there is simultaneous use of the drug with other myelosuppressive medications or radiation therapy, the degree of suppression of bone marrow function or development of other side effects may increase.

    Treatment with Hydrea should be carried out only under the doctor’s supervision, who has experience in use of antitumor therapy. Before each course and during treatment with the drug, it is necessary to periodically monitor functions of the bone marrow, kidney and liver. Determination of hemoglobin, leukocytes and platelets should be carried out at least once a week during the entire period of treatment with the drug.

    Usage during Pregnancy and Lactation

    Hydrea should not be taken during pregnancy, so during the therapy a patient should be warned about the need for reliable contraception. If pregnancy has occurred during the drug administration, it is necessary to warn the patient about the possibility of a risk to a fetus. The drug passes into breast milk, so it is necessary to stop breastfeeding for the period of treatment or cancel the therapy.
