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.

Seek immediate medical attention if you develop symptoms of infection (fever, chills, persistent sore throat) or unusually easy bruising/ bleeding. (See also Side Effects section.)

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.
