Does Bendamustine Cause Fatigue?

Clinical trials on bendamustine (Treanda®) looked at whether this drug caused fatigue or other side effects. In these studies, fatigue was a commonly reported reaction to this chemotherapy medication, occurring in up to 57 percent of people.
 
Although fatigue is a common side effect of bendamustine, make sure to let your healthcare provider know immediately if you develop significant fatigue. This may be a sign of an infection, especially if it is accompanied by:
 
  • Fever
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Shortness of breath.
