Temozolomide is employed in the treatment of specific types of brain tumors. Classified under alkylating agents, temozolomide operates by reducing or halting the proliferation of cancer cells within your body.

Uses and Dosage

Follow your doctor’s instructions when taking this medication orally, typically once daily, according to your prescribed treatment schedule. Swallow the capsules whole with a full glass of water, equivalent to 8 ounces or 240 milliliters. Do not crush, chew, or open the capsules. In case of vomiting after taking your dose, refrain from taking any additional medication. Instead, wait and administer your next dose at the regular scheduled time.

To mitigate nausea and vomiting, take temozolomide on an empty stomach or at bedtime. For optimal efficacy, ensure consistency by taking this medication at the same time each day in relation to meals, such as one hour before or three hours after a meal.

The dosage and treatment schedule are determined based on your medical condition, height, weight, and response to treatment. Adhere to your doctor’s instructions for taking this medication. To help you keep track of your dosing schedule, consider marking your calendar.

In some cases, your doctor may also prescribe additional medications, such as antibiotics, to assist in preventing infections or managing side effects. Be sure to follow your doctor’s guidance when taking all prescribed medications.

Refrain from increasing your dose or using this drug more frequently or for a longer duration than prescribed, as doing so will not expedite the improvement of your condition and may heighten the risk of serious side effects.

In the event that the capsules are unintentionally opened or damaged, avoid inhaling the medication or allowing it to come into contact with your skin.
