Etoposide injection (Toposar®) is a chemotherapy medicine prescribed for the treatment of certain types of testicular cancer and lung cancer in adults. It works by damaging DNA, which prevents cancer cells from multiplying and dividing.
Toposar is given as a slow injection into a vein once a day or every other day for up to five days, followed by a three- to four-week break. Nausea, hair loss, and low levels of blood cells are among the possible side effects.
