Breast Cancer Home > Xeloda 150 Mg Tablets

A variety of factors will affect the amount of Xeloda® (capecitabine) tablets your healthcare provider prescribes; the 150-mg strength is certainly a possibility, but this will depend on things like your height and weight (taken together, this is known as your body surface area), as well as the type and severity of your cancer.
You should take a dose of Xeloda within 30 minutes after a meal, and it's best to take this medication at the same times each day to maintain an even level in your blood. Do not adjust your dosage -- and especially do not stop taking it -- without talking to your healthcare provide first.
