My best friend has MS and has actually been on this drug. I would go over and take care of her alot during her therapy. Some of her hair did fall out, but she did not lose it all. Her first treatment didn't really affect her, but the consecutive treatments after that really took a toll on her functioning. She was incredibly fatigued, felt sick and nautious all the time, and really couldn't do much for a couple days after. While this drug kept her from relapsing for a couple months, she ended up getting really sick from some kind of bacteria that she had picked up, which threw her into a relapse, which was 100 times worse than the ones she had been having before the cytotoxin. They ended up taking her off cytotoxin. While it helped for a little bit, it ended up being worse for her in the end.
