What is P-Carzine (Procarbazine HCL) used for?
P-Carzine (Procarbazine HCL) is an oral cancer medication prescribed to treat patients who have Hodgkin`s disease (cancer of the lymph nodes). The medication interferes with the growth of cancer cells to prevent their spread allowing other procedures to be performed to eliminate them. It may also be prescribed to reduce the size of solid tumours such as brain tumours. Your doctor may prescribe this medication for the treatment of other unlisted conditions, as well.
How should I use P-Carzine (Procarbazine HCL)?
P-Carzine (Procarbazine HCL) is normally administered once each day at a dosage of one tablet, but your individual directions will depend on your age, weight, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be swallowed with a large glass of water and a meal to prevent nausea. Do not split or crush the tablets prior to use as this may destroy or alter the effects of their contents. Ask your doctor any questions you have about the medication to make sure you are using it correctly as any alterations may lead to serious health problems.
