Hydrourea 500mg Capsule contains the active ingredient Hydroxyurea, which is a medication used primarily in the treatment of certain blood disorders and cancers.
Hydrourea 500mg Capsule is primarily prescribed for the following conditions:
Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML): A type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow.
Polycythemia Vera: A blood disorder characterized by an overproduction of red blood cells.
Essential Thrombocythemia: A disorder in which the body produces too many platelets.
Sickle Cell Anemia: A genetic blood disorder in which red blood cells become rigid and sticky, leading to blockages in blood vessels and various complications.
Mechanism of Action:
Hydroxyurea works by interfering with the synthesis of DNA, the genetic material of cells. By inhibiting DNA replication, it slows down the growth and proliferation of abnormal blood cells, helping to control blood disorders and reduce the risk of complications.
Take the capsule orally, with a full glass of water, as directed by your healthcare provider. Follow the prescribed dosage and frequency of administration.
Common side effects of Hydrourea 500mg Capsule may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and skin rash. Serious side effects may include bone marrow suppression, which can lead to decreased production of blood cells, and increased risk of infection and bleeding. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience any severe or persistent side effects.
Inform your healthcare provider about any pre-existing medical conditions, especially kidney or liver problems.
Disclose all medications, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs, as well as any herbal supplements, to avoid potential interactions.
Use effective contraception during treatment, as Hydroxyurea may cause harm to an unborn baby.
