4 Precautions to Take
Before using Mustargen, there are some precautions you must take. Your doctor should check your daily progress at regular visits.
It is a bone marrow suppressant. It temporarily reduces your white blood cells and platelets, and so making you susceptible to infections and bleeding. While using this drug you should avoid people with the infection.
Be careful when using a regular toothbrush, dental floss, or toothpick. Be careful not to cut yourself when you are using sharp objects such as a safety razor or fingernail or toenail cutters.
Mechlorethamine is a chemical that causes extensive tissue damage and blistering if it escapes from the vein. The nurse or doctor who gives this drug must be carefully trained. If you notice redness or swelling at the IV site while you are receiving Mechlorethamine, alert your health care professional immediately.
Nausea and vomiting usually occur within first 3 hours after drug administration. You will be given anti-nausea medication before receiving the drug.
Do not have any immunization (vaccination) during and after the treatment with this drug without your doctor’s approval. Mechlorethamine may lower your body's resistance and there is a chance you might get the infection the immunization is meant to prevent.
