Basic Information on Myleran
Myleran is a medication used in the palliative treatment of chronic myelogenous leukemia. It is an alkalyting agent, i.e. causes damage to cancer cells by inducing an error in their DNA structure. The Myleran drug is not a cure for the disease but it slows down the proliferation of cancer cells and is mainly used only for symptoms alleviation. It is prescribed for adults and pediatrics.
Precautions / Side Effects for Myleran
Myleran or Busulfan can have serious side effects. Often the side effects are due to a lowered immune system. If you are on treatment, avoid crowded areas and meeting sick people. Even a small infection can become a serious threat. This drug can also make your skin susceptible to cuts and you can bleed easily. Skin can also become pale. Many people also report gum bleeding. A possible neurological side effect of brand or generic Myleran includes seizures, particularly in those individuals who have had a head injury or are epileptic. Other side effects include blurred vision, stomach problems and rapid weight gain or weight loss.
Busulfan can harm unborn babies. Women are advised against getting pregnant. If pregnancy has been confirmed, you should let your doctor know. It is not known if breastfeeding can pass this drug to your infant. Bone marrow depletion can happen with brand or generic Myelran, resulting in inadequate production of RBCs with consequences like anemia and other symptoms of oxygen depletion.
The recommended dosage of Myleran for adults is 4 to 8 mg daily. The dosage is based on the body weight for both adult and pediatrics, which is 60 mcg/kg. A high dose is only recommended for the most severe symptoms. The rate of leukocytes decline is dependent on the dose. During the initial course of treatment, the count may actually increase and this should not be seen as resistance to the drug. The dose should not be increased during the first ten days. When a decline is noticed, the drug should be stopped before normal levels are reached. The decrease in counts can usually be observed in 12 to 30 weeks after initiation of medication. During remission, the patient’s leukocyte count has to be monitored closely.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
