People who have breast cancer or colorectal cancer may benefit from using Xeloda® (capecitabine), a chemotherapy medication that is available by prescription. Most people tolerate Xeloda well; and even when side effects occur, they are usually minor. Some side effects of Xeloda include nausea, diarrhea, and anemia. Xeloda comes in the form of a tablet, and it is usually taken twice a day. The dose of Xeloda that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on several factors, such as your height and weight, the type and severity of your cancer, other medications you may be taking, and other existing medical conditions.
