Asked by Sal Mahaxay 4 months ago.
Dogs are surprisingly resistant to side-effects from chemotherapy, although they can occur (generally after a week or more of therapy, sometimes later.) I hope your dog won't have any problems. The link below describes some things to watch out for. Best of luck. Answered by Cleora Lybert 4 months ago.

The best I can tell you is to scroll down the bottom of your page and you will find "India". Click on that and people from your country may be able to help you. Otherwise, speak to her Dr or pharmacist and find out where you can get this. I wish her well. Answered by Jeannette Lumpp 4 months ago.

Is there an alternative to cytoxan? Lets say a patient undergoing a lupus flareup (fever etc)... and the only way to bring it down is Cytoxan. Lets also say that the patient was diagnosed with lupus 3-4 years ago and after months of trying different things in the hospital, the only effective method to make the patient stable was cytoxan. Right now the flare up is not even close to being as worse as 3-4 years ago.. but in the case where no other option except Cytoxan is available.. is there a herbal/natural alternative.. with lets say.. less dangerous side effects.

It really depends on your level of pain tolerance and whether or not the pain or meds interfere with your daily life. Is the pain unbearable? Then stopping meds is probably not a good idea, because you won't be able to function. You might try stretching your time between doses, and seeing if that makes a difference. Or wait til the pain gets to a certain level before taking the meds. I have fibromyalgia, and take pain meds... muscle relaxers, vicodin, percocet, etc. I wait until I really need them before taking them. But when I need them, I need them. If the pain is that bad, I can't do anything anyway. Lupus is another disorder where all you can really do is treat the symptoms. Answered by Regenia Lerper 4 months ago.
Is cyclophosphamide a good pill to reduce tumor marks?
Asked by Henrietta Quinnett 4 months ago.
Do you mean tumor markers? This drug in used in some chemotherapies for various kinds of cancer and for autoimmune diseases. The whole point of chemotherapy is to kill the cancer cells and this will reduce the tumor marker. You don’t mention what kind of cancer you are referring to, but I have to assume if the doctor prescribed it, it must be good for what ever cancer it is. Answered by Danelle Schub 4 months ago.

Cyclophosphamide for rheumatoid arthritis Examples cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan, Neosar) How It Works Cyclophosphamide is an immunosuppressive medication, which means that it decreases the effects of your body's immune system. By interrupting the immune process, cyclophosphamide reduces inflammation and slows joint damage caused by rheumatoid arthritis. Cyclophosphamide is a disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD), which means it controls the progression of the disease. DMARDs are also called slow-acting antirheumatic drugs (SAARDs). Why It Is Used Cyclophosphamide is used for severe rheumatoid arthritis that has not responded to other treatments. Cyclophosphamide is often used as chemotherapy in treatments for certain cancers, including non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and breast cancer. It is also used to suppress the immune system before bone marrow transplantation or after an organ transplantation. How Well It Works Cyclophosphamide has been found to be effective in reducing disease activity and joint inflammation in people with rheumatoid arthritis. A recent review reports that treatment with cyclophosphamide for 6 months significantly reduces disease activity and joint inflammation. However, because of its serious side effects, cyclophosphamide is most often reserved for use in people with severe rheumatoid arthritis that has not responded to other treatments.1 Side Effects Side effects of cyclophosphamide are common and can include: Nausea and vomiting. Allergic reactions. Hair loss (alopecia). Cessation of menstruation (amenorrhea) or early menopause. Decreased sperm count (azoospermia). Darkening of skin (hyperpigmentation). Severe reactions can include: Decreased bone marrow function and serious blood problems. Bladder problems such as blood in the urine. Because cyclophosphamide decreases the activity of your body's natural immune system, fever and chills are considered serious side effects that should be reported to your health professional immediately. Cyclophosphamide increases the risk of infections such as herpes zoster (shingles). Prolonged use of cyclophosphamide is associated with an increased risk of some cancers, including bladder cancer.1 See Drug Reference for a full list of side effects. (Drug Reference is not available in all systems.) What To Think About Talk to your doctor before taking cyclophosphamide if you are pregnant, thinking about becoming pregnant, or are breast-feeding. If you are taking cyclophosphamide, it is very important that you drink plenty of fluids (around 3 quarts) each day in order to avoid bladder irritations. Your doctor will schedule you for regular blood counts during treatment with cyclophosphamide. Answered by Cristen Alexader 4 months ago.

Docetaxel Cyclophosphamide Doxorubicin My mom had breast cancer now shes in remission. Her right arm sometimes tingle and her right leg. Sometimes her hand goes numb to the point she cnt pick anything up. She was checked for carpal tunnel and things but her test results are normal. Could it just be because the chemo is leaving her body and the cancer is gone. I just want to know what are the side effects for no longer taking the meds and being done with chemo other then being tired. Answered by Evelina Gwinner 4 months ago.

Do you think she will go bald? Also her scalp is completly dry, is there anything she should do, like put oils in her hair or special shampoo? I told her to ask her doctor, but she said her doctor wouldn't know. That doesn't make sense to me but okay, I'll just listen to her! Help if you can, thank you.

Cytoxan (CTX) is Cyclophosphamide, it decreases the number of red & white cells, hair cells are rapidly dividing cells which this treatment attacks therefore causing hair loss, not all chemo's cause hair loss but Cyclophosphamide does, unfortunately. A mixture of Bi-carb and water gently massaged into the scalp can release dryness of the scalp, use a sensitive scalp shampoo. All the best to you & your mum. Answered by Angelo Simpson 4 months ago.
I am on taxol. I asked my oncology nurse if I would loose my hair and he said "some". He's bald and he shaves his head. When all of mine fell out, i told him he was talking about man bald. I was totally bald for the second time. It depends on the drug, but your mom should ask the oncology nurses. They know EVERYTHING, and if they don't hava an answer for you at the time, they'll find out. It usually comes out in gobs, so you will be able to tell shortly. Her doctor should know too. I just use my regular shampoo on my stumpy hair. Maybe she should get shampoo for dry hair. It's not as harsh. If her dryness gets to be a problem, ask one of those wonderful nurses. Good luck to your mom in her treatment and you for being there for her. God bless you both. Hugs Answered by Leann Birtwell 4 months ago.
