Patient Information Leaflet
Read all of this leaflet carefully before you start taking this medicine.
• Keep this leaflet. You may need to read it again.
• If you have any further questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
• This medicine has been prescribed for you. Do not pass it on to others.
It may harm them, even if their symptoms are the same as yours.
• If any of the side effects get serious, or if you notice any side effects not
listed in this leaflet, please tell your doctor or pharmacist straightaway.
Throughout this leaflet, Cyclophosphamide 50 mg Tablets will be called
Cyclophosphamide.
Important things to know about Cyclophosphamide
Your doctor has prescribed Cyclophosphamide because you have cancer that
can be treated.
Cyclophosphamide is a medicine that kills cancer cells but, as a result, also
attacks normal cells. It can therefore have a number of side effects. Your
doctor will not give you Cyclophosphamide unless he or she thinks that your
cancer is more of a risk to you than any possible side effects. Your doctor will
check you regularly and treat any side effects where possible.
Cyclophosphamide:
• will reduce your blood cell count, which may make you feel tired and be
more likely to get infections.
• can affect your kidneys and bladder. You may be given another medicine
called Mesna to help prevent any damage. If you notice blood in your urine,
tell your doctor immediately.
• like most anti-cancer or chemotherapy medicines, you may lose your hair
(anything from thinning to total loss), although it should start to grow back
once your treatment has finished. It may also make you feel sick or be sick.
Your doctor can give you advice or medicines to help.
• Men or women should not have a child during treatment with
Cyclophosphamide or for at least 6 months after treatment.
You should use an effective contraceptive. Ask your doctor for advice.
Now read the rest of this leaflet. It includes other important information on
the use of Cyclophosphamide that might be especially important for you.
In this leaflet:
1) What Cyclophosphamide is and what it is used for
2) Before you take Cyclophosphamide
3) How to take Cyclophosphamide
4) Possible side effects
5) How to store Cyclophosphamide
6) Further information

1) What Cyclophosphamide is and what it is used for
Cyclophosphamide is a cytotoxic drug or anti-cancer drug. It works by killing
cancer cells, this is sometimes called ‘chemotherapy’. It is used to treat lots of
different cancers. Cyclophosphamide is often used together with other anticancer drugs or radiotherapy.
Occasionally, some doctors may prescribe Cyclophosphamide for other
conditions not related to cancer, your doctor will tell you if this applies to you.

2) Before you take Cyclophosphamide
Do not take Cyclophosphamide if:
• you have ever had an allergic reaction to the active ingredient or any of the
other ingredients (listed in Section 6). An allergic reaction can include
shortness of breath, wheezing, rash, itching or swelling of the face and lips
• your bone marrow is not working properly (especially if you have previously
had chemotherapy or radiotherapy). You will have blood tests to check how
well your bone marrow is working
• you have a urinary tract infection, which can be recognised as pain when
passing urine (cystitis)
• you currently have any infections
• you have ever had kidney or bladder problems as a result of previous
chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
• you have a condition which decreases your ability to urinate (Urinary
outflow obstruction)
Tell your doctor if:
• you are already having, or have recently had, radiotherapy or chemotherapy
• you have diabetes
• you have liver or kidney problems. Your doctor will check how well your liver
and kidneys are working by doing a blood test
• you have had your adrenal glands removed
• you have heart problems or have had radiotherapy in the area of your heart
• you have poor general health or are frail
• you are elderly.
Take special care with Cyclophosphamide
• Cyclophosphamide can have effects on your blood and immune system
• Blood cells are made in your bone marrow. Three different types of blood
cell are made:
– red blood cells, which carry oxygen around your body
– white blood cells, which fight infection, and
– platelets, which help your blood to clot.
• After taking Cyclophosphamide, your blood count of the three types of cells
will drop. This is an unavoidable side effect of Cyclophosphamide. Your
blood count will reach its lowest level about 5 to 10 days after you start
taking Cyclophosphamide and will stay low until a few days after you finish
the course. Most people recover to a normal blood count within 21 to 28
days. If you have had a lot of chemotherapy in the past, it may take a little
longer to return to normal.
• You may be more likely to get infections when your blood count drops. Try
to avoid close contact with people who have coughs, colds and other
infections. Your doctor will treat you with appropriate medicine if they think
you have, or are at risk, of an infection.
• Your doctor will check that the number of red blood cells, white blood cells
and platelets is high enough before and during your treatment with
Cyclophosphamide. They may need to reduce the amount you are given or
delay your next dose.
• Cyclophosphamide can affect wound healing. Keep any cuts clean and dry,
and check they are healing normally.
• It is important to keep your gums healthy, as mouth ulcers and infections
can occur. Ask your doctor about this if you are unsure.
• Cyclophosphamide can damage the lining of your bladder, causing bleeding
into your urine and pain on urination. Your doctor knows this can happen
and, if necessary, he or she will give you a medicine called Mesna which
will protect your bladder.
• Mesna can either be given to you as a short injection, or mixed into the drip
solution with your Cyclophosphamide, or as tablets.
• More information on Mesna can be found in the Patient Information Leaflet
for Mesna Injection and Mesna tablets.
• Most people having Cyclophosphamide with Mesna do not develop any
problems with their bladder, but your doctor may want to test your urine for
the presence of blood using a ‘dipstick’ or microscope.
• If you notice that you have blood in the urine, you must tell your doctor
straight away as they may need to stop giving you Cyclophosphamide.
• Cancer medicines and radiation therapy can increase the risk of you
developing other cancers; this can be a number of years after your
treatment has stopped. Cyclophosphamide has an increased risk of causing
cancer in the area of your bladder.
• Cyclophosphamide can cause damage to your heart or affect the rhythm of
it beating. This increases with higher doses of Cyclophosphamide, if you
are being treated with radiation or other chemotherapy medicines or if you
are elderly. Your doctor will monitor your heart closely during treatment.
• Cyclophosphamide can cause inflammation or scarring in your lungs. This
can occur more than six months after your treatment. If you start having
difficulty breathing tell your doctor straight away.
• Cyclophosphamide can have life threatening effects on your liver. If you
have sudden weight gain, liver pain and jaundice tell your doctor straight
away.
• Hair thinning or baldness can occur. Your hair should grow back normally
though it may be different in texture or colour.
• Cyclophosphamide can make you feel sick or be sick. This can last for
about 24 hours after taking Cyclophosphamide. You may need to be given
medicines to stop feeling or being sick. Ask your doctor about this.

can cause miscarriage or damage your unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you
are pregnant, think you might be pregnant or are trying to become pregnant.
• Men or women should not try to have a child during or for at least 6 to 12
months after treatment. You should use an effective contraceptive. Ask your
doctor for advice.

your ability to drive and use machines safely. Your doctor will decide if it is
safe for you to do so.
What to do if you see a different doctor, or have to go to hospital
If you see any other doctor or have to go to hospital for any reason, tell them
what medicines you are taking. Do not take any other medicines unless your
doctor knows you are taking Cyclophosphamide.

3) How to take Cyclophosphamide
Taking this medicine
• Cyclophosphamide Tablets are to be taken by mouth. Do not chew them.
• If you are also having Mesna, your doctor will tell you how much you need
to drink.
You should take your tablets with enough liquid to make them easy to
swallow.
• Cyclophosphamide is often given with other anti-cancer drugs or
radiotherapy.
The usual dose
• Your doctor will decide how much of the medicine you need and when you
should take it.
• The amount of Cyclophosphamide you will need to take depends on:
− the type of illness you have
− how big you are (a combination of your height and weight)
− your general health
− whether you are being given other anti-cancer drugs or having
radiotherapy.
• The usual dose is between 100 mg (2 tablets) and 300 mg (6 tablets) per
day. You can take all of one day's tablets together, but you should try to
take them about the same time each day, preferably in the morning. If you
are not sure how to take your tablets, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Cyclophosphamide is usually taken for several days in a row as a course, and
then there is a break (a period when no tablets are taken) before the next
course. Sometimes you may need to take different numbers of tablets on
alternate days, for instance, 3 tablets one day and 4 the next.
Your doctor may need to change the amount of medicine you are given and
monitor you more closely if you:
• have problems with your liver or kidneys
• you are elderly.
If you forget to take Cyclophosphamide
If you forget to take your Cyclophosphamide:
• you should take them as soon as you remember, if it is on the same day. If
you have forgotten to take a whole day's tablets, then you should talk to
your doctor.
• Never take more tablets in one day than you were meant to
− so never take two days worth of tablets on the same day in order to ‘catch
up’.
If you take too much Cyclophosphamide
In the event of an overdose, or if a child swallows any of your tablets, talk to
your doctor or local hospital emergency department immediately. Hospital
admission for special treatment may be needed.

4) Possible side effects
Like all medicines, Cyclophosphamide can cause side effects, although not
everybody gets them. Side effects can sometimes occur after ending the
treatment. The following side effects may happen with this medicine.
Tell your doctor straight away, if you notice any of the following serious
side effects:
• allergic reactions, signs of this would be shortness of breath, wheezing,
rash, itching or swelling of the face and lips
• getting bruises without knocking yourself, or bleeding from your gums. This
may be a sign that the platelet levels in your blood are getting too low
• a lowering of your white blood cell count, your doctor will check this during
your treatment. It will not cause any signs, but you will be more likely to get

infections. If you think you have an infection (a high temperature, feeling
cold and shivery, or hot and sweaty, or any signs of infection such as a
cough, or stinging on passing water) you may need antibiotics to fight
infections because your blood count is lower than usual
• very pale, lethargic and tired. This may be a sign of low red blood cells
(anaemia). Usually, no treatment is required, your body will eventually
replace the red blood cells. If you are very anaemic, you may need a blood
transfusion
• blood in your urine, pain while passing urine, or less urine being passed.
Other possible side effects may be:
Immune system and Infections
• allergic reactions, signs of this would be shortness of breath, wheezing,
rash, itching or swelling of the face and lips (hypersensitivity). Severe
allergic reactions could lead to difficulty in breathing or shock, with a
possible fatal outcome (anaphylactic shock, anaphylactic/anaphylactoid
reaction)
• reduction in the effectiveness of your immune system
(immunosuppression).
• increased risk and severity of bacterial, fungal, viral, protozoal or parasitic
infections due to the effect of cyclophosphamide on your immune system
• reactivation of infections you have had before (latent infections)
• severe infection spreading through the blood which may lead to a
dangerous drop in blood pressure with a possible fatal outcome (sepsis,
shock).
Cancers
• cancer of your blood (leukaemia)
• cancer of the bone marrow (myelodysplastic syndrome)
• cancer of the lymphatic system (Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma)

bladder
• changes to your metabolism caused by the breakdown of the dying cancer
cells (Tumour lysis syndrome)
Blood and Lymphatic System
• decrease in the activity of your bone marrow (myelosuppression).
This can cause a decrease in the number of cells in your blood:
− white cells - which fight infection (leucopenia, agranulocytosis,
granulocytopenia, lymphopenia, neutropenia). This may be associated
with fever (febrile neutropenia)
− platelets - which help your blood clot (thrombocytopenia)
− red cells - which carry oxygen around the body (anaemia).
This may be associated with a decrease in their ability to carry oxygen
(decreased haemoglobin)
− red cells, white cells and platelets at the same time (pancytopenia)
• formation of small blood clots in your blood vessels disrupting the normal
blood flow around your body (disseminated intravascular coagulation)
• haemolytic uremic syndrome – a condition causing abnormal break down of
the red blood cells, decreased numbers of platelets in the blood and kidney
failure.
Endocrine System
• swelling of the brain due to too much water in your blood (water
intoxication). Signs of this can be headache, changes in personality or
behaviour, confusion, drowsiness
• increase in the release of antidiuretic hormone from the pituitary gland. This
affects the kidneys causing the low levels of sodium in your blood
(hypernatremia) and water retention.
Metabolism and Nutrition

muscle twitching, fits and coma (hyponatremia)
• accumulation of fluid in the body (water retention), which may been seen as
fluid beneath the skin or swelling in you limbs
• high blood sugar levels which can cause thirst, tiredness and irritability
(hyperglycaemia)
• low blood sugar levels which can cause confusion and sweating
(hypoglycaemia)
• loss of appetite (anorexia)
• dehydration.
Digestive system
• feeling sick and being sick (nausea, vomiting).
• inflammation of your intestines or bowel which may resulting in bleeding
(enteritis, cecitis, hemorrhagic enterocolitis)

inflammation of the pancreas (acute pancreatitis)
• Inflammation which causes abdominal pain or diarrhoea (colitis)
• constipation or diarrhoea
• ulcers in the lining of your digestive system (mucosal ulceration)
• inflammation of the lining of your mouth including ulcers (stomatitis)

(peripheral neuropathy). This could be in more than one set of nerves
(polyneuropathy)
• pain from your nerves, which can also feel like an aching or burning
sensation (neuralgia)
• tingling or numbness, often in the hands or feet (paresthesia)
• shaking (tremor)
• changes in your sense of touch (dysesthesia) or loss of sensation
(hypoesthesia)
• changes in your sense of taste (dysgeusia) or loss of taste (hypogeusia)

• deafness or hearing impairment
• ringing in the ears (tinnitus).
Heart and Circulation
• heart attack (myocardial infarction)
• changes in your heart rhythm (arrhythmia) which may be noticeable
(palpitations):
- irregular heart beat (fibrillation)
- faster heart beat (tachycardia), which may be life threatening (ventricular
tachycardia)
- slower heart beat (bradycardia)
• decrease in your hearts ability to pump enough blood around your body
which may be life threatening (cardiogenic shock, heart failure or cardiac
arrest)
• disease of the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy)
• inflammation of the tissues in or around your heart (myocarditis, pericarditis)
build up of fluid in the sac around your heart (pericardial effusion).
Increased pressure from this fluid can stop the heart filling properly (cardiac
tamponade)

• blood clot in the lungs which causes chest pain and breathlessness
(pulmonary embolism)
• blood clot, usually in a leg, which causes pain swelling or redness (venous
thrombosis)

• disruption of the formation of bile by the liver which can cause itchiness,
jaundice, pale coloured stools, dark urine (cholestasis)
• a build up of toxins in the body due to liver failure (hepatotoxicity). This may
affect the brain causing confusion, reduced consciousness or coma (hepatic
encephalopathy)
• a build up of fluid in the abdomen causing swelling of the tummy and
shortness of breath (ascites)
