Comment:
After four weeks in the hospital, I was prescribed Cytoxan for treatment of Cryptogenic Organizing Pneumonia. The usual treatment, Prednisone, did not work for me. I don't like the potential side-effects, but in my case it was literally a matter of life or death. The Cytoxan worked.

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 ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
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)
