  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for multiple sclerosis)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (constipation, fatigue, nausea, hair loss, headaches, vomiting)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take

Advice & Tips: Although the monthly infusions were largely ineffective for me, you results may be different. Regarding the side effects, about the time I started feeling "normal", I was back in chemo. It was an extremely miserable 6 month period. But in retrospect, I felt that I had to do what I could to slow the progression, and that cytoxan infusions were my best chance to do it.

  • Adherence

  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 1600 mg Monthly
Advice & Tips: Limit your exposure to others, especially those that are ill, cover your mouth and nose, and wash your hands often. You will lose some of your immune system for up to three weeks, leaving you susceptable to infection. Very important to eat 5-6 small meals more often than 2-3 larger meals, and drink lots of water to flush the Cytoxan out of your bladder, as it is toxic to your system.
Side effects: nausea, hair loss, vomiting, constipation, headaches, fatigue
