Chemical Name: Busulfan
Myleran belongs to the group of cancer-fighting medicines known as antineoplastics, and specifically to the group of antineoplastics known as alkylating agents. Myleran prevents the growth of cancer cells by interfering with the genetic material DNA, which is necessary for reproduction of cells. Myleran is used to treat leukemia (cancer of white blood cells). Your doctor may choose to use this medication for other conditions not listed here.
Myleran Side Effects:
The recommended dose of Myleran is 0.06 mg per kilogram body weight per day to a total maximum daily dose of 4 mg per day. Treatment is given until maximum benefit is achieved or toxic effects prevent further use. When the white blood cell count is under control without medication after treatment with busulfan, the patient is said to be in remission. While in remission, monthly checks are carried out and treatment begins again if the white blood cell count rises to a certain number per volume of blood (usually 50,000/mm). Dose varies according to circumstances and how long remission has lasted. 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 using the medication without talking to your doctor.
Myleran tablets must be taken exactly as directed by your doctor. They should be taken at the same time each day to have the best effect.
