What happens if I miss a dose (Vumon)?
Contact your doctor if you miss a dose of teniposide.
What happens if I overdose (Vumon)?
If for any reason an overdose of teniposide is suspected, seek emergency medical attention or contact your healthcare provider immediately.
Symptoms of a teniposide overdose tend to be similar to side effects caused by the medication, although often more severe.
What should I avoid while using teniposide (Vumon)?
Teniposide 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 teniposide. 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.
Skin accidentally exposed to teniposide should be rinsed thoroughly with soap and warm water.
What other drugs will affect teniposide (Vumon)?
Do not receive "live" vaccines during treatment with teniposide. Administration of a live vaccine may be dangerous during treatment with teniposide.
Talk to your doctor and pharmacist before taking any other prescription or over-the-counter medicines, including herbal products, during treatment with teniposide.
Where can I get more information?
