Fludara Chemotherapy Information

As a chemotherapy drug, Fludara® (fludarabine phosphate) is prescribed to treat a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow called B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia. This drug is used after other treatment has been tried unsuccessfully or if the cancer has progressed despite previous treatment. It is approved for use in adults only.
 
It comes as an injection that is given into a vein (intravenously, or by IV). Side effects are common and may include fatigue, fever, and infections.
 
If your healthcare provider recommends chemotherapy treatment with Fludara, he or she will need information on your medical history and any other medications, vitamins, or supplements you are using. You should also talk to your healthcare provider before starting Fludara if you are pregnant or have any allergies.
