MERCAPTOPURINE (6-MP, PurinetholÃ‚Â®) is a type of chemotherapy for treating cancer. Mercaptopurine interferes with the growth of cancer cells. It is used for treating acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL). Mercaptopurine may also be used to treat inflammatory bowel conditions such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease.
I have a quick question. If I had taken 1 and a half of those by accident, is it going to be like very bad for me because I think I might have taken that and I read it can make men sterile! Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
though I doubt taking 1/2 of one pill once will cause any permanent medical problems, the only way you would be able to find out for certain would be to contact a physician. which if it were me, I would do. it is also possible that a pharmacist may be able to answer this for you as well.
