WARNING: Lomustine may cause serious blood disorders (decreased bone marrow function leading to low number of white blood cells/platelets and anemia). It can lower your body's ability to fight an infection and increase your risk of bleeding. These side effects usually occur 4-6 weeks after your dose. Higher doses and more doses increase the chance of these side effects.
Your doctor will monitor you and perform blood tests weekly for at least 6 weeks after each dose. Your dose and any further treatment will be based on your blood tests. You will have to wait at least 6 weeks between doses.
