Common use

Xeloda is used to treat cancer. It is pro-medication, it turns into a cytotoxic compound 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). 5-FU is formed in the tumors with help of thymidine phosphorylase, thus systemic influence of 5-FU on healthy tissues is minimal. The medication is used to treat breast cancer or colon or rectum cancer (also one with metastases) including types of the cancer resistant to paclitaxel and anthracyclines.

Dosage and direction

Take the medication exactly as it was administered to you. Treatment usually consists in a treatment cycle of 2 weeks on and 1 week off. This cycle is repeated up to 8 times. Take it orally with a full glass of water, 30 minutes after a meal. The daily dose is 2.5 g/sq.m/day (the daily dose should be divided in two intakes).

Antacids which contain aluminum and magnesium hydroxide increase blood concentrations of capecitabine and metabolite 5′-Deoxy-5-fluorocytidine. Cyclophosphamide increases toxicity due to increase of thymidine activity. Calcium folinate increases toxicity of capecitabine due to increased toxicity of fluorouracil.

Missed dose

Take the dose you missed as soon as you remember. If it is almost time of your next intake just skip it and return to your regular schedule.
