In brief: Possible Side Effect
Xeloda (capecitabine) is an oral chemotherapy drug, the most common side effects are diarrhea, nausea, hand-foot syndrome (redness, swelling, cracking of palms/soles) and like any chemotherapy may bring down your white blood cells.
To prevent this you may take an anti diarrheal, anti emetic, b6, use a skin moisturizer and check your blood frequently. Not everyone experiences one of these symptoms.
