If you have breast or colorectal cancer, your healthcare provider may prescribe Xeloda® (capecitabine). The medication works by interfering with the development of DNA in the cells, stopping the cells from multiplying. Capecitabine also works by causing certain parts of the cells to stop functioning. The medicine comes in a tablet form that is taken by mouth twice a day. As with any medication, it is possible to take too much capecitabine. Seek immediate medical attention if you overdose on capecitabine. Symptoms of a capecitabine overdose can include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
