Hycamtin Capsules


There is no known antidote for overdosage with HYCAMTIN capsules (topotecan capsules) . The primary anticipated complication of overdosage would consist of hematological toxicity. The patient should be observed closely for bone marrow suppression, and supportive measures (such as the prophylactic use of G-CSF and/or antibiotic therapy) should be considered.


HYCAMTIN is contraindicated in patients who have a history of severe hypersensitivity reactions (e.g., anaphylactoid reactions) to topotecan or to any of its ingredients. HYCAMTIN should not be used in patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or in patients with severe bone marrow depression.
