Temodar is a prescribed medication used to treat certain brain tumors, such as: 

  • Newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme in adults, administered alongside radiotherapy and continued for maintenance. 
  • Refractory anaplastic astrocytoma in patients with progressive disease despite nitrosourea and procarbazine treatment. 

As an alkylating agent, Temodar works by disrupting the growth and spread of cancerous cells within the body. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before taking Temodar and with every prescription refill, carefully read its medication guide and patient information leaflet. In case of any concerns, seek guidance from your physician or pharmacist. 

The dosage and treatment schedule of this medication is determined based on the patient’s medical condition, height, weight, and response to the treatment. 

Typically, Temodar is taken once daily in the evening on an empty stomach, following a treatment schedule. The capsules must be swallowed whole with a full glass of water and should not be crushed, chewed, or opened. 

If any capsules are damaged or leaking, avoid direct contact and inhalation of the powder. Always wear rubber or latex gloves when handling broken or opened capsules to prevent skin contact. If capsule contents come into contact with your skin, promptly wash the affected area with water. 

For optimal results, take this medication exactly as directed at around the same time each day, ideally in relation to a meal (e.g., 1 hour before or 3 hours after eating). 

If vomiting occurs after taking the medication, promptly inform your doctor. Do not take an additional dose of Temodar on the same day. Instead, wait and take your next scheduled dose at the usual time. 

Refrain from increasing the dosage or frequency of this medication beyond what has been prescribed. Doing so will not expedite your progress and may heighten the potential for serious adverse reactions. 

Seek medical advice before ceasing the use of Temodar.
