Mustargen Drug Information

Mustargen® (mechlorethamine) is a medication used for the palliative treatment of certain types of cancer. This means that it helps to reduce symptoms caused by the cancer, but it cannot cure the disease. Mustargen is approved for use in adults only and is specifically licensed to treat the following types of cancer:
 
  • Certain cancers of the blood and bone marrow, such as lymphoma and leukemia
  • Lung cancer
  • Metastatic cancer (cancer that has spread from its original site) that has caused an abnormal collection of fluid in the body cavities (effusion).
  •  
Although some people may not have any problems with this medicine, side effects are common and may include vomiting, weakness, and infertility.
 
To ensure your safety with Mustargen, make sure your healthcare provider has current information on any other drugs you are taking (including vitamins and supplements), as well as any allergies you may have. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
