Nausea, vomiting: Cytoxan (cyclophosphamide) can be given orally or intravenously at various different dosage ranges. Nausea and vomiting are probaly the most common side-effects. Abdominal pain can occur sometimes when given orally. Hair loss, drop in blood counts, fatigue, loss of appetite, discoloration of the skin are not uncommon. High doses can irritate the urinary bladder and can cause blood in the urine.
