- Pharmorubicin Pfs
Epirubicin injection is used together with other cancer medicines to treat breast cancer in patients who have had surgery to remove the tumor.
Epirubicin belongs to the group of medicines called antineoplastics. It interferes with the growth of cancer cells, which are eventually destroyed. Since the growth of normal body cells may also be affected, other unwanted effects will also occur. Some of these may be serious and must be reported to your doctor. Other effects, like hair loss, may not be serious but may cause concern. Some effects may not occur until months or years after the medicine is used.
This medicine is to be given only by or under the immediate supervision of your doctor.
