Hydrea (hydroxyurea) 


Hydrea is indicated for- 

  • Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML): Used to manage and reduce the high white blood cell count associated with CML. 
  • Sickle Cell Anemia: Helps to reduce the frequency of painful crises and the need for blood transfusions in patients with sickle cell anemia. 
  • Polycythemia Vera: Reduces the number of red blood cells to decrease the risk of clotting and related complications. 
  • Essential Thrombocythemia: Lowers high platelet counts to reduce the risk of clotting problems. 

Dosage and Administration 

  • Take Hydrea capsules with or without food; taking with food may help reduce stomach upset. 
  • Swallow the capsules whole with a glass of water; do not crush, chew, or open them. 
  • Adhere strictly to the prescribed dosage and schedule set by your doctor. 
  • Take the medication at the same time each day to maintain a consistent level in your bloodstream. Avoid missing doses; if you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember unless it is almost time for the next dose. 
  • Do not take two doses at the same time to make up for a missed dose. 
  • Avoid direct contact with broken or opened capsules and wash hands thoroughly if contact occurs. 
  • Do not stop taking Hydrea without consulting your doctor, as this can affect your treatment. 

Mechanism of Action 

Hydrea works by inhibiting the synthesis of DNA, which slows down or stops the growth of cancer cells and abnormal blood cells. This helps to manage conditions like CML, sickle cell anemia, polycythemia vera, and essential thrombocythemia by controlling abnormal cell proliferation. 


  • Severe Bone Marrow Suppression: Not recommended for you if you have severe bone marrow suppression or low blood cell counts. 
  • Severe Anemia: Avoid using it if you suffer from significant anemia. 
  • Pregnancy: Not recommended for use during your pregnancy due to the potential risk to the fetus.
