May produce myelosuppression; assess hematological profiles including differential WBC before & during each cycle of therapy. Secondary leukemia w/ or w/o a pre-leukemic phase. Mucositis/stomatitis. Evaluate serum total bilirubin before & during treatment; blood uric acid, K, Ca phosphate, creatinine levels after initial therapy. Phlebosclerosis.

Infection; leukopenia, neutropenia, anemia, thrombocytopenia; decreased appetite; mucosal inflammation/stomatitis, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea; palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia syndrome, alopecia; pyrexia, asthenia, chills; decreased ejection fraction, abnormal ECG & transaminases, increased wt.
Drug Interactions
Increased conc & clinical effect w/ CYP3A4, CYP2D6 &/or P-gp (eg, verapamil) inhibitors. May decrease conc w/ CYP3A4 inducers (eg, phenobarb, phenytoin, St. John's wort) & P-gp inducers.
