VAC Chemotherapy: VAC (Vincristine, Actinomycin-D, Cyclophosphamide) is a 3 drug regimen. Each of the components has side effects. Vincristine can cause peripheral neuropathy (numbness/tingling in the hands/feet). Actinomycin-D can cause mouth sores and hair loss, and Cyclophosphamide can cause nausea, mouth sores, and sometimes bleeding in the bladder. Low blood counts and fatigue are frequent with VAC.
