This is what I found out from WebMD:
So far I have been lucky as I have not had any side effects but then again I have not been on Cytoxin for a year.
Cytoxan is a therapy that may be given to people with multiple sclerosis. It works by suppressing the immune system. It's given to people with MS because MS is thought to be the result of an abnormally active and misdirected, immune system. Cytoxan can keep your white blood cells from attacking your central nervous system, thereby slowing MS disease activity.
The medication is administered directly into a vein by way of an intravenous (IV) drip. Unfortunately, Cytoxan can produce serious side effects. Your neurologist will discuss the potential benefits and risks with you and your family. If you have any concerns or questions, discuss them with your health care team.
What Are the Side Effects?
Cytoxan side effects may include:
• Hair thinning/loss
• Low white blood cell count
To control nausea associated with Cytoxan therapy, your doctor will probably give you either Zofran or Reglan. Side effects may include:
• Diarrhea or constipation
• Dry mouth
• Tired feeling
