    Efudex headaches, headache, efudex, throbbing headaches
    I have been applying Efudex twice daily for two days per week. I am in my third week, and I have had a headache for the past two days. I rarely get headaches, and think that this must be related to my use of Efudex.

    I don't know if you are still following this board, but I'm experiencing throbbing headaches during my second week of Efudex treatment as well. Did they go away when you discontinued treatment?

    How long is long enough? the Dr's don't seem to agree.
    Why is there such a difference in Dr.'s directions, i.e. 2 weeks vs. 4 weeks vs. 6 weeks of treatment? Also, why is the chest so much more unbearable? I'm treating my hands and forearms which are reacting nicely and are just a little itchy, but my ch - 35% more...

    Efudex creatine, dad
    My Dad was using Efudex and his PT/INR increased above the therapeutic level. Now his creatine has increased. After he was taken off of the Efudex his PT/INR went back to normal. Any thoughts?
