General Information on Taking Leukeran

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Leukeran include the following:
 
  • Leukeran comes in the form of a tablet. It is normally taken by mouth once a day.
  • Try to take this medicine on an empty stomach, about one hour before or two hours after eating. However, you can take it with food if it upsets your stomach.
  • Take your dose at about the same time each day to keep an even level of the medicine in your bloodstream.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage, please talk with your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
