Hello Everyone!
I am doing my own amateur *research* on the types of medicines and chemotherapy people have had or are currently taking. If you wouldn't mind giving me the names and even the dosage, but I will settle for just names of meds, I would really appreciate it! Please dont worry about spelling :-) You can email me here or leave a reply to this post. Thank you very much for your time and help.

My Mom just completed chemo for lymphoma using fludarabine and mitoxantrone.I don't know the dosages but it was for 3 consecutive days every 4 weeks.Good luck with your research.

I have a lymphoma of the skin. I have been on Methotrexate (a folic acid antagonist; folic acid is necessary for the manufacture of one of the 4 nucleic acids which make up DNA)for 1.5 year. At first the dose was built up to 30 mg a week. Now I am on 15 mg a week.

mc- I spoke with you in the chat room the other night. I didn't get to talk with anyone for very long I kept getting the boot. I just found this site - am in desperate need to not feel "different". Reading the messages on the message board has help me to understand that I am not "different" and that everyone to some degree feels or is feeling what I have. Hope you are doing well, thoughts and prayers with you and all.
