Zinecard Drug Information
Dexrazoxane is used to reduce the risk and severity of heart damage caused by doxorubicin treatment and similar cancer chemotherapy medications. Heart damage limits the length of time you can be treated with doxorubicin. Dexrazoxane allows you to continue doxorubicin treatment for longer. When used for this purpose, dexrazoxane treatment is usually started after you have received several doses of doxorubicin. It is usually not given with the first doses of doxorubicin since doing so may reduce the effectiveness of doxorubicin.
How to Use Zinecard
Zinecard is usually given by injection into a vein by a health care professional. When Zinecard is used to reduce the risk and severity of heart damage, the doxorubicin dose is usually given within 30 minutes after the start of the dexrazoxane infusion. If skin contact should occur, wash the area with plenty of soap and water. If irritation occurs, contact your doctor right away. Heart damage may occur at any time with doxorubicin treatment, even years after the end of your doxorubicin treatment. Tell your doctor right away if you have symptoms of heart damage such as sudden nighttime shortness of breath, difficulty breathing while lying down, or shortness of breath when active.
Before using dexrazoxane, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Zinecard may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Zinecard, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,kidney disease, liver disease. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Zinecard should be used only when clearly needed. It may harm an unborn baby. Discuss the use of reliable forms of birth control (such as condoms, birth control pills) and the risks and benefits of Zinecard with your doctor. If you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant, tell your doctor right away. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. You should not become pregnant while using dexrazoxane. Dexrazoxane may harm an unborn baby. Women should ask about reliable forms of birth control while using Zinecard and for 6 months after stopping treatment. Men should ask about reliable forms of birth control while using Zinecard and for 3 months after stopping treatment. If you or your partner become pregnant, talk to your doctor right away about the risks and benefits of Zinecard. It is unknown if Zinecard passes into breast milk. However, because Zinecard may have undesirable effects on a nursing infant, breast-feeding while using Zinecard and for 2 weeks after stopping treatment is not recommended. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
For the best possible benefit, it is important to receive each scheduled dose of Zinecard as directed. If you miss a dose of Zinecard, contact your doctor or pharmacist right away to establish a new dosing schedule.
