I had no problems with this at all. They normally follow it the next day with a Neulasta shot, and THAT made me sick until I learned that if you take an antihistamine like Claratin one hour before the shot, you won't get sick. Ask your doctor about this. It really works.

Comment:
I rec'd 3 courses of Adriamycin & Cytoxan in 1996. Have remained CA free. However, am now developing numbness and some pain in toes. Primary Care Phy. believes it is a side effect from the above. Have not been able to locate any info.information provided to me regarding this as a side effect.
