Contact your doctor if you miss a dose of floxuridine.
What happens if I overdose (FUDR)?
If for any reason an overdose of floxuridine is suspected, seek emergency medical attention or contact your healthcare provider immediately.
Symptoms of a floxuridine overdose tend to be similar to side effects caused by the medication, although often more severe.
What should I avoid while using floxuridine (FUDR)?
Floxuridine can lower the activity of your immune system making you susceptible to infections. Avoid contact with people who have colds, the flu, or other contagious illnesses and do not receive vaccines that contain live strains of a virus (e.g., live oral polio vaccine) during treatment with floxuridine. In addition, avoid contact with individuals who have recently been vaccinated with a live vaccine. There is a chance that the virus can be passed on to you.
What other drugs will affect floxuridine (FUDR)?
Do not receive "live" vaccines during treatment with floxuridine. Administration of a live vaccine may be dangerous during treatment with floxuridine.
Other drugs may interact with floxuridine. Talk to your doctor and pharmacist before taking any other prescription or over-the-counter medicines, including herbal products, during treatment with floxuridine.
Where can I get more information?
