Fludara Drug Information
Oforta is used to treat leukemia and other cancers. It works by slowing or stopping the growth of cancer cells.
Oforta may cause certain severe blood and bone marrow problems (low red blood cells/white blood cells/platelets, hemolytic anemia). These problems can decrease your body's ability to prevent/stop bleeding, fight infection, or carry enough oxygen in your blood. Tell your doctor right away if you develop easy bleeding/bruising, unusual tiredness, fast/pounding heartbeat, pale/bluish skin color, or signs of infection (e.g., fever, chills, persistent sore throat). Fludarabine may rarely cause severe (sometimes fatal) central nervous system problems. Symptoms may not occur until weeks after your last treatment. Tell your doctor right away if you notice any vision changes, seizures, agitation, confusion, or numbness/tingling. Do not use fludarabine with pentostatin (deoxycoformycin). Use of these 2 medications together has caused fatal lung problems.
How to Use Oforta
Oforta is given by injection into a vein over 30 minutes by a health care professional. It is usually given once a day for 5 days or as directed by your doctor. Dosage of Oforta is based on your medical condition, body size, and response to treatment. Your doctor will check your blood counts to make sure you can receive your next cycle. Keep all medical/lab appointments. If Oforta touches your skin, immediately wash the area well with soap and water. If Oforta gets in your eye, open the eyelid and flush with water, then seek immediate medical attention.
Before using fludarabine, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Oforta may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Tell your doctor your medical history,current infections, certain virus illnesses (herpes, chickenpox), blood disorders (e.g., anemia, clotting problems), kidney problems. Do not have immunizations/vaccinations without the consent of your doctor, and avoid contact with people who have recently received oral polio vaccine or flu vaccine inhaled through the nose. Wash your hands well to prevent the spread of infections. Avoid contact with people who have illnesses that may spread to others (e.g., flu, chickenpox). To lower your chance of getting cut, bruised, or injured, use caution with sharp objects like razors and nail cutters, and avoid activities such as contact sports. Kidney function declines as you grow older. Oforta is removed by the kidneys. Therefore, elderly people may be at greater risk for side effects (e.g., infection, bleeding) while using Oforta. Oforta is not recommended for use during pregnancy. It may harm the unborn baby. If you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant, tell your doctor right away. To avoid pregnancy, both males and females using Oforta should use reliable form(s) of birth control (e.g., birth control pills, condoms) during treatment and for 6 months after treatment has ended. Consult your doctor for details and to discuss effective forms of birth control. It is not known whether Oforta passes into breast milk. However, it may have undesirable effects on a nursing infant. Therefore, breast-feeding while using Oforta is not recommended. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
For the best possible benefit, it is important to receive each scheduled dose of Oforta as directed. If you miss a dose of Oforta, contact your doctor or pharmacist right away to establish a new dosing schedule.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval."blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin, enoxaparin), live vaccines (e.g., flu vaccine inhaled through the nose, typhoid/polio vaccine taken by mouth), pentostatin, other drugs that weaken the immune system/increase the risk of infection (such as natalizumab, rituximab), salicylates/NSAIDs (e.g., aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen). Check all prescription and nonprescription medicine labels carefully since many contain pain relievers/fever reducers (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen, and aspirin) that can increase your risk of bleeding. Low-dose aspirin should be continued if prescribed by your doctor for heart attack or stroke prevention (usually at dosages of 81-325 milligrams a day). Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
