Medustine (Lomustine) is an oral anti-cancer medication prescribed to treat several types of cancer. These include brain cancer, lung cancer, lymphoma, or malignant skin cancer. The medication operates by interfering with cancer cell reproduction to slow its growth and possibly prevent its spread to other parts of the body. It may be used along with surgery, radiotherapy, or other medications to fully eliminate the infection. Your physician may also prescribe it to treat other conditions not listed here.

Dosage and administration

Always follow your physician’s instructions for using Medustine (Lomustine) to ensure the safest and most effective results. It is normally prescribed to be taken once a day at the indicated dosage. Your dosage and frequency of application will be determined by your response to previous treatments, symptom severity, current health condition, and the type of cancer being treated. Never alter any part of your regiment unless instructed to do so as misuse can lead to severe health complications including death.

Swallow the daily doses whole and unaltered along with a large glass of water. It is recommended to take the capsules on an empty stomach to prevent nausea. Never change the form of the medicine prior to use by opening the capsules or dissolving their contents in water as this can destroy their contents or alter their effects by disrupting the timing of release. It is also recommended to take the doses at the same time each day to get the most efficient results by keeping a constant level of medicine in the body at all times.

Consult your physician regularly while using the medicine to make sure it is having the correct results. This will allow your response to the medicine to be observed so that the correct adjustments can be made to your regiment including changes to your dosage or frequency of administration until the best results are found. If you have questions about the medicine, ask your pharmacist or physician to ensure the correct application.
