Temoside is a medication used to treat certain types of brain tumors, including glioblastoma multiforme and anaplastic astrocytoma. The active ingredient in Temozolomide is Temozolomide, which belongs to the class of drugs known as alkylating agents. It works by damaging DNA in cancer cells, which causes the cells to stop dividing and eventually die.
Temoside is used to treat brain tumors in patients who have undergone surgery or radiation therapy. It may also be used as a first-line treatment for patients with glioblastoma multiforme who cannot undergo surgery.
HOW TO USE:
Temoside should be taken as directed by the doctor. The dosage and duration of treatment will depend on the patient’s medical condition and response to treatment. The capsules should be taken on an empty stomach, at least one hour before or two hours after a meal. Patients should swallow the capsules whole with a glass of water.
Temoside capsules should be stored at room temperature, away from direct sunlight, and out of the reach of children. The capsules should be kept in their original packaging until they are ready to be used.
Mechanism of action:
Temozolomide works by damaging the DNA in cancer cells, which prevents the cells from dividing and eventually causes them to die. This occurs through a process known as alkylation, which involves the addition of alkyl groups to the DNA bases.
Before using Temoside, patients should inform their doctor if they have any pre-existing medical conditions, including liver or kidney disease. Patients should also inform their doctor if they are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Temoside should not be used in patients who are allergic to Temozolomide or any of the other ingredients in the medication. It should also not be used in patients with severely reduced liver function.
Temoside may interact with other medications, including blood-thinning medications and certain antibiotics. Patients should inform their doctor of all medications they are taking, including over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
If an overdose of Temoside is suspected, patients should seek immediate medical attention. Symptoms of an overdose may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and increased risk of infection.

1. Nausea and vomiting
