Cancer drugs

Nurse and patients talking about cancer   

This page has a scrollable list of links to information about individual cancer drugs, cancer drug combinations, and their side effects. There are all types of cancer drugs in this list, including drugs used in chemotherapy, hormone therapies and biological therapies, and bisphosphonates. The drugs are listed in alphabetical order by pharmacy (generic) name and brand name, to make it easy to find what you are looking for.

There are also pages about the possible side effects that you may have while taking drugs to treat cancer. The link below takes you to a list of pages about sickness, other digestive system side effects, mouth problems and many more.

You can find out about the sources we used to put this section together on our page where this information about cancer drugs comes from.

Our section with your tips and stories is a way to help other people by telling them how you've coped with treatment. If you have any suggestions that other people might find helpful, please do send them in to us. You can send them on the Your tips and stories contribution form.
