In Depth Information on Oncotron Injection

Expert advice for Oncotron Injection

  • Mitoxantrone may turn your urine to a blue-green color and the whites of your eyes to a bluish color; this is not of a cause of concern.
  • Avoid contact with people who have colds or infections as mitoxantrone may lower the ability of your body to fight infections. 
  • Do not receive a live vaccine (eg, measles, mumps) while you are using mitoxantrone.
  • Avoid activities that may cause bruising or injury as mitoxantrone may reduce the number of clot-forming cells (platelets) in your blood making you more susceptible to bleeding. Seek immediate medical attention if you have unusual bruising or bleeding or if you have dark, tarry, or bloody stools.
  • Take precautions by staying hydrated especially if vomiting or diarrhea occurs.
  • Ensure that cardiac monitoring is regularly performed and blood counts are taken at frequent intervals prior, during, and post therapy. 
  • Tell your doctor of any relevant medical history, especially of blood/bleeding disorders (e.g., anemia, low blood cell counts), heart disease (e.g., congestive heart failure, irregular heartbeat), liver disease, radiation treatment, recent/current infection.
