What Is Oxitan 50mg/25ml

Oxitan 50mg is used to treat cancer of the large intestine and rectum (colorectal cancer). It is used with two other anti-cancer drugs, fluorouracil (FU), and folinic acid.

    Medication arrived as described and seems to be of good quality. Shipping, however, without any known weather delays took far longer than expected. In excess of three full weeks.
