Hello. I am a 22 year old professional diagnosed with lupus nine years ago. I currently work full time at a large tech company, work as a Mary Kay beauty consultant, and am also applying to law school.

My lupus has been controlled pretty well in past. Recently my doctors started me on Cellcept (500mg four times a day) which they say is a pretty decent dose for my size. (I'm 5'3" and weight about 100 lbs)

Doctors are now suggesting I start cytoxan treatments. I've heard about the side effects, hair loss, infertility, etc. but I'd like to know some of your personal experiences with it? Were you fatigued? Were you able to go on with your normal life? Was the hair loss severe and how did you cope with it? Please let me know what your experience was like and if/how it helped you.
