Side Effects of Gemzar

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Gemzar. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, some people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in some cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
 
Common side effects include but are not limited to:
 
  • Increased liver enzymes (which can be a sign of liver damage)
  • Nausea and vomiting (see Chemotherapy and Nausea)
  • Anemia (see Chemotherapy and Anemia)
  • Neutropenia (low levels of a certain type of white blood cell called neutrophils).
