Table of contents:

Myleran (generically known as busulfan) is an oral chemotherapy drug used to treat chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). Myleran contains the active ingredient busulfan, which is an alkylating agent that works by slowing or stopping the growth of cancer cells and is typically used in combination with other chemotherapy medications.

Myleran is often used as a part of chemotherapy to treat several types of cancer, including chronic myelogenous leukemia and ovarian cancer. It is a potent drug and should only be used under the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional. It is taken orally, typically once every six hours, and is used to control the disease and improve the quality of life of those with CML.

Use and Dosage

Myleran is available in the form of tablets that can be taken by mouth with or without food. The typical dosage is once daily or as advised by your doctor, and it may vary based on factors such as your weight, medical condition, lab tests, and response to treatment. Your healthcare provider may recommend temporary discontinuation of treatment if your blood counts are too low. Attend all medical and laboratory appointments.

Do not exceed your prescribed dose of Myleran tablets or take them more frequently than recommended, as this can increase the risk of serious side effects without improving your condition any faster.

It should be noted that Myleran can be absorbed through the skin and lungs. Therefore, pregnant, or potentially pregnant, women should avoid handling this medication or inhaling the dust from the tablets.
