Highly Effective and Well-Tolerated Therapy for Breast Cancer


Capecitabine is a chemotherapy agent used in the treatment of breast cancer, gastric cancer, and colorectal cancer. In treating breast cancer capecitabine is often prescribed along with docetaxel. The capecitabine price in India is around Rs. 1353 for a supply of 10 tablets.

The usual dose of capecitabine for adults is 1250 mg/m2 of body surface area taken orally two times a day (morning and evening). Pills of capecitabine are usually administered for 2 weeks followed by 1 week rest period (when no tablets are taken). This 3 weeks period is known as one treatment cycle.
