What side effects did you experience while on this medication?

Hi, I'm Kathy L M.

I took fludara for six months once per month at the end of 2008. I usually had three days of treatment each month and one different drug for each day. I was usually tired by the time I had fludara but I had no side effects from it. The other drugs were where I had side effects.
