I had a medical error in taking Cladribine infusion within 30 minutes for four days out of seven days. The treatment is supposed to be taken 24 hours a day. What is the procedure currently required and is there any danger in the short-term and long-term and whether the treatment was taken correctly and what tests are required now? Any procedure I can do to correct this sick error? I received treatment with a dose of 7 grams mixed in 100 ml venous solution at 0.1 concentration and in half an hour for four consecutive days. Please help me rapidly.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Cladribine is an antineoplastic drug used mainly in hairy cell leukemia. It is also used in other hematolymphoid malignancies. Since you have not mentioned the condition you are receiving the drug for, I am assuming that it is for hairy cell leukemia.
The main adverse effects of Cladribine are hepatotoxicity, renal impairment, and neurotoxicity.
If you have any symptoms of decreased urine output, nausea, vomiting, jaundice, tingling of hands and feet, loss of sensation, etc., please visit the emergency room immediately.
In the future, I would advise you to talk to your doctor regarding the error that occurred so that it does not happen again.
