Etoposide (VP-16) is a medicine used to treat certain types of cancer (leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, neuroblastoma, Ewing's sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, Wilms tumor, brain tumors) and histiocytosis.
Etoposide is usually given by IV infusion in the hospital.
Capsules are available and not usually used.
If taking oral capsules, call your doctor right away if a dose is missed. Never double the dose to try to catch up.
For any information about your child's dosing schedule and/or missed doses, contact the healthcare provider who prescribed the medication.
