Drug Info for capecitabine

Capecitabine is used in combination with other medications to treat breast cancer that has come back after treatment with other medications. It is also used alone to treat breast cancer that has not improved after treatment with other medications. Capecitabine is also used to treat colon or rectal cancer (cancer that begins in the large intestine) that has gotten worse or spread to other parts of the body. It is also used to prevent colon cancer from spreading in people who have had surgery to remove the tumor. Capecitabine is in a class of medications called antimetabolites. It works by stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells.

Capecitabine is used to help treat breast, colon or rectal cancer and other conditions as prescribed by your doctor. It stunts or slows the growth of cancer cells in the body. Capecitabine is indicated for use by adults and is available as a tablet.
