Drug interactions between fluorouracil and mitomycin
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: fluorouracil and mitomycin
The use of mitoMYcin has been associated with a condition known as hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), and using it with fluorouracil may increase that risk. HUS is a disorder where red blood cells are destroyed by toxic substances produced by an infection. The damaged red blood cells can clog the filtering system in the kidneys and cause kidney failure. Fatality may occur in up to 50% of cases. You may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring by your doctor to safely use both medications. Consult with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
