Zumustin 100 mg Injection


Overview

Introduction of Zumustin Injection

Zumustin 100 mg Injection is used to treat cancer of the lymphatic system such as Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). It may also be used to treat other types of cancer as determined by your doctor. It can be used alone, or together with certain other medicines as part of combination chemotherapy.

Zumustin 100 mg Injection prevents cancer cells from growing, as a result of which they eventually die. This stops the spread of cancer cells in the body. Since the growth of normal body cells may also be affected with this medicine, other effects may also occur. Zumustin 100 mg Injection often causes nausea and vomiting. However, it is important that you continue to receive the medicine, even if you begin to feel ill.

Zumustin 100 mg Injection may also cause damage to the nerves. If you experience symptoms such as pain, burning, numbness, or tingling in the hands or feet, weakness in the arms or legs, loss of ability to move arms or legs, mood changes, loss of consciousness, contact your doctor immediately. This medicine may reduce the number of blood cells in your blood thereby, increasing the susceptibility to infections. Regular blood tests are required to check your blood cells along with kidney, liver and heart function during treatment with this medicine. It is important to use effective contraception to avoid getting pregnant or fathering a child during treatment.
