Melphalan drug information

Medication Information: Honeysuckle is used to treat some cancers and conditions in which cells grow rapidly in the body. Therefore, they are often prescribed in diseases such as multiple myeloma and polycythemia vera (excessive increase of blood cells). Multiple myeloma is a bone marrow cancer. Polycythemia is a bone marrow disease that results in an abnormal increase in the number of red blood cells in the body. This makes your blood thicker and makes you feel dizzy and short of breath.
