I was supposed to take Fluorouracil for 3 weeks, but after 2 the pain is unbearable and my skin is exposed in crusting over. If I stop taking it now, is there any other side effect other than it maybe be less effective than if I had taken it the full 3 weeks?
Can I stop taking Fluorouracil early?

Upon reading the insert which came with my fluorouracil 5% cream, it states that treatment can range between 2-4 weeks. I am not a health professional, but I suppose you may fall within the 2 week range type.
