Etoposide is a high-dose therapy used during bone marrow transplants.
Common side effects of Etoposide occur in more than 30% of patients and can include hair loss, increased risk of infection due to low white blood cell count, increased risk of bleeding due to low platelet count, nausea and vomiting, chemo-induced menopause, and, if infused too quickly, low blood pressure.

Less common side effects occur in 10-29% of patients taking Etoposide and can include poor appetite, mouth sores, diarrhea, and a severe skin reaction known as radiation recall.
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and mouth sores are more likely to occur in individuals receiving high doses of Etoposide.
