    Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)

    Side Effects

    I had hair loss which has grown back and is curly. I have had my hair cut and colored. Nerve damage in feet and is actually getting better. I had some stomach issues but prilosec and tums helped. Severe low white count which was helped with shots to boost white count.
