Reviews for Doxorubicin
Adriamycin (doxorubicin) for Breast Cancer: "Adriamycin made me really weak and I had to have blood transfusions. I had 4 doses. I'm coming up on 3 years cancer free so I think it worked well. I'm concerned about the long term side effects."

Adriamycin (doxorubicin) for Breast Cancer: "I did not experience any side effects, but based on a clinical trial result, I walked at a brisk pace for an hour most days to avoid cardiotoxicity."

Adriamycin (doxorubicin) for Lymphoma: "It will melt away your tumors quickly, however has quite the delayed effect for nausea and vomiting. Make sure your Oncologist gets you on some supportive meds!"

For Cancer: "It will make you feel nasty, and you have to be careful with the cardiotoxicity, but it will do its job. And it will do it very well."

For Ovarian Cancer: "I had four Doxil treatments several years ago and I am now just starting to have it again. It did great things for my ca125 number, but there were some bad side effects. Very large sores on my elbows (this time I am wearing elbow pads from the beginning). I had a rash on both legs from top to foot. The hot red hands and feet are better if you do not take hot baths or showers. Keep the water lukewarm or cool."
