      I had plain old Doxorubicin (Adriamycin) in the first half of my induction therapy, then Doxil (Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin) in the second half. I do no know if I have received the lifetime maximum dosage, but, miraculously, all of my EKGs over the past 4 1/2 years have come back normal. I had some "attention-getting" skin issues in the second half that were attributed to the Doxo. But, skin issues during, and heart issues afterward are the problems than many note.
