5FU, or fluorouracil, is a key part of common chemotherapy for metastatic colorectal cancer, the “F” in FOLFOX and FOLFIRI. I’ve been on one or the other for almost four years now, and while there are many side effects of 5FU (and oxaliplatin and irinotecan), I’ve never experienced migraines. Maybe inadequate intake of fluids might be partly responsible?
