For Multiple Myeloma: “Took cyclophosphamide for 9 weeks as induction chemo with velcade and dex. When diagnosed multiple myeloma I was raging with lytic lesions everywhere. I went down to 5% by 9 weeks before stem cell transplant. I was so ill when diagnosed that any pain , nausea, loss of weight I can't attribute to cyclophosphamide.”

Cytoxan (cyclophosphamide) for Multiple Myeloma: “So far so good. Being careful and isolated is important while preparing for bone marrow transplant (BMT). Wear hepa filter mask when outside. Rest and drink 100oz.of water per day. Caretaker is the most important person that can help you get thru this. My wife is my CT. I have experienced joint pain, fatigue and some sweating at night. Like I said so far so good. My first chemo was Valcade and Revlimed and dexamethasone. Has been going on for 8 months so far.”

Cytoxan (cyclophosphamide) for Multiple Sclerosis: “My experience with Cytoxan was very good. Prior to starting this treatment I was having difficulty with most activities, including walking, writing and even dressing. After a few treatments I was performing these and many other activities quite well. I continued with the treatments for over 3 years (with 1 treatment every 4-6 weeks). Now I am having tysabri treatments every 4 weeks with good success.”

For Multiple Sclerosis: “I received cytoxan IV for Multiple Sclerosis. I don't remember how long I lasted before I had a seizure. I have had a seizure disorder since I was 6 years old or younger. This was the worst seizure I have had since I started having them. I have read the site and was surprised to see that it is not listed as a side effect. Otherwise, it wasn't a bad experience. I lost 1/2 of my hair and it came back thicker.”

Cytoxan (cyclophosphamide) for Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia: “Full blown blast crisis. Had extreme joint and bone pain felt like sunburn while having your skin smacked and twisted. Went to ER got diagnosed with leukemia got bone marrow test to confirm. Needed afforesis immediately took four days. Then needed transfusions then chemo which included cytoxin. Great medicine got my counts down quick so remission came quick. But because I was ph also it took other expensive and research study trials to help me. But once I was in remission they used high doses of Cytoxin with radiation and others to get me into complete remission. Then stem transplant.”
