I have had cytoxan treatments last February and am going to be going back on them (I hope) real soon as my MS seems to be getting the best of me and my Neurologist thinks that the Cytoxan has been the only thing that has helped me since I was diagnosed. I realize that it can give serious side effects but that is determined by the dose that is given and I don't think it is real strong so I am not worried yet. I trust in my Neurologist and I know he is trying his best for me and that's all I can ask. I really don't think you would lose your hair but then again, I haven't been affected much by any of the treatments I have had except for the first Avonex Treatment when I got nauseous. Oh well, to each his own I guess but I really can't wait to start the treatments again because I have been washing out my body for 3 1/2 months from the Tysabri which didn't work for me either.
By the way, I used to live in Joliet for many years until I moved to Idaho in 2000, one thing I don't miss is the traffic becaue we don't even come close to having a traffic jam out here! Take care and Happy New Year!
