I have Pulmonary Fibrosis and take 50mg of cytoxan. This drug has allowed me to reduce the prednisone dose to 10mg. I have used imuran and cellcept, but not as effective as cytoxan. My lung function has been stable for 10 years. (only 30% lung capcaticy)

I have been using this for a year now, sense aug. 2009 and have had great results. Lymphnodes are normal size and no side effects other than minor hair loss.

I have been on Cytoxan for about 3 months now, and it was successful in shrinking my tumor in order to remove it and start radiation. The nausea and tiredness has been pretty bad but its a small price to pay for the wonders this drug has done for me.

I expected the side effects to be close to what my late wife had with all her chemo treatments for breast cancer. I was given an anti-nausea medication to take with Cytoxan. My expectations were definitely wrong on the drug side effects. I only had flu like symptoms the whole time I took the treatment and my nausea wasn't very bad. I could still work but did light duty. I didn't lose my hair, but it did get much finer. The most importantly thing is that I have no signs of cancer in me now!

My father had Kidney disease ( his immune system was attacking his kidneys). It did wonders for this condition but it destroyed his lungs. They do not tell you that it can cause holes in your lungs, blood clots in the lungs but it can and does!!! My father passed away Sept 2 2010 and I blame this drug!! Even the Doctor (not prescribing doctor) said that it did a number on my daddy!!

I was diagnosed with Vasculitis PAN Nodosa in Oct. 2009 & have been taking Cytoxan since. Dose was just increased to 100 mg. & eventually will be increased to 150 mg. I'm just starting to lose my hair. Am concerned about side effects. Was told I could eventually try Imuran but it's side effects are no better. Since my condition is rare, it's trial & error on treatment & medications.
