Fluorouracil Haemoglobin Decreased Side Effects

Fluorouracil Haemoglobin Decreased Side Effect Reports


The following Fluorouracil Haemoglobin Decreased side effect reports were submitted by healthcare professionals and consumers.

This information will help you understand how side effects, such as Haemoglobin Decreased, can occur, and what you can do about them.

A side effect could appear soon after you start Fluorouracil or it might take time to develop.



Sepsis, Haemoglobin Decreased, Haematocrit Decreased, Lymphocyte Percentage Decreased, Monocyte Percentage Decreased

This Haemoglobin Decreased side effect was reported by a consumer or non-health professional from TH. A 57-year-old patient (weight:NA) experienced the following symptoms/conditions: colorectal cancer metastatic. The patient was prescribed Fluorouracil (dosage: NA), which was started on Aug 21, 2013. Concurrently used drugs:
  • Leucovorin (folinic Acid) (solution For Infusion) (folinic Acid)
  • Irinotecan
  • Aflibercept
  • Serotonin Antagonists
  • Corticosteroids
  • Loperamide
  • Plasil (metoclopramide Hydrochloride)
When starting to take Fluorouracil the consumer reported the following symptoms:
  • Sepsis
  • Haemoglobin Decreased
  • Haematocrit Decreased
  • Lymphocyte Percentage Decreased
  • Monocyte Percentage Decreased
The patient was hospitalized. These side effects may potentially be related to Fluorouracil.

Fluorouracil Haemoglobin Decreased Reviews

The side effects of Fluorouracil are most likely to be minor and temporary.InternationalDrugMart

Fri, 20 May 2011

its not 1%---more like 14% and that may even be a conservative estimate--Your doctor is lieing to you--surprised???

Sun, 13 Mar 2011

My fiancee passed away on 3/7/2011 after her second round of 5FU. The oncologist had used the words "surprised" and "out of the ordinary" on her reaction to the first round because of the amount and severity of her side effects. He still gave her the same dosage for the second round. Ten days later, she was in ICU. Seven days after going to the hospital, she was dead. She was 47 and in incredible shape except for the colon cancer. The doctor told us that she was part of the 1% of the population that didn't have the enzyme to metabolize the 5FU but she wasn't given the test because of the low percentage. With that decision, the woman I loved is no longer here.Her name was Birgit.
