    My 17 yr old daughter is receiving Cubicin I.v at home for atleast the next 4 weeks. One week in and she is having most the side effects ie.. nausea/vomiting, muscle/joint pain, fatigue etc.. however one not mentioned is hair loss, its coming out by the handful. I haven't heard if anyone else has experienced this. efficacy of this new drug is great, but it is very hard on the body.
