Doxil treatment
Jan 14, 2006

I.was.wondering.if.its.possible.that.side.effects.from.being.treated.with.doxil.show.up.after.treatment.is.stopped.even.if.there.were.no.probems.during.treatment?

Response from Dr. Henry

Doxil (doxorubicin) is used to treat Kaposi's sarcoma in some AIDS patients as well as other malignancies. Most of the side effects show up during treatment though there can be some delayed bone marrow suppression of cardiac toxicity (which is usually carefully monitored). Mouth sores and skin problems can develop while receiving it which generally would get better if the dose is lowered or treatment is over or stopped. KH
