Lomustine is employed in the treatment of specific types of brain tumors. It is additionally utilized in combination with other medications to address Hodgkin’s lymphoma (Hodgkin’s disease) that either has not responded to previous treatments or has deteriorated despite prior medication regimens. Lomustine falls under the category of medications known as alkylating agents. Its mechanism of action involves slowing down or halting the growth of cancer cells within the body.

Uses and Dosage

Lomustine is administered in capsule form to be taken orally. Typically, it is taken once every 6 weeks on an empty stomach. A complete dose may consist of capsules with various types and colors. The prescribed quantity will provide enough capsules for a single dose.

Consume all the capsules from the prescription bottle simultaneously.

Take lomustine precisely as directed, avoiding deviations such as taking more or less than prescribed or increasing the frequency beyond the doctor’s instructions.

When handling the capsules, you should wear rubber or latex gloves to prevent direct contact with your skin. In case the capsule contents come into contact with your skin, promptly wash the affected area with soap and water.
