Xeloda (Capecitabine) Drug Information
If you have breast cancer or colorectal cancer, your healthcare provider may recommend Xeloda® (capecitabine). Because this chemotherapy drug is not suitable for everyone, it's important to review the safety information for this medicine with your healthcare provider before starting treatment. For example, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other health issues you may have, such as kidney disease, liver disease, or any allergies.
Xeloda comes in tablet form and is taken every day for two weeks, followed by a one-week break. Make sure to take your dosage with food (within 30 minutes after eating a meal) and at the same times every day to maintain an even level in your blood.
