Can fludarabine phosphate tablets cause mouth sores?

You may develop pain or sores in the mouth and throat while taking fludarabine phosphate tablets for leukemia.

You may want to avoid hot or spicy foods, which can make the pain worse. An easy home remedy to soothe mouth sores is to use a cotton swab to dab them with a mixture of equal parts hydrogen peroxide and water. Then dab on a small amount of milk of magnesia, three to four times a day. Talk to your doctor about other tips and remedies, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines.
