Cancer develops when cells in the body multiply abnormally and uncontrollably. They grow and spread as the cells multiply. Hydrea works by entering the mutant cells and altering their DNA, so that they are unable to grow and reproduce, thus preventing them from spreading.
Patients will be prescribed a tailored dosage by their physician, which will vary, depending on their physical condition and the type of illness being treated. The capsules are taken orally and should be swallowed with plenty of water. Alternatively, those who have trouble swallowing capsules can empty the contents of the capsule into a glass of water and drink it immediately. Patients should ensure that they take their capsules at the right time every day and must not miss any doses. Hydrea will usually be taken as part of a course of chemotherapy over a number of months and may be used in conjunction with other treatments. The patient's physician will draw up a treatment program based on the intensity and type of cancer or blood disorder they have.
