Eloxatin® (oxaliplatin) can cause two types of neuropathy: acute and chronic. While acute neuropathy can be managed by avoiding cold and certain foods that trigger it, chronic or peripheral neuropathy gets worse as the cumulative dose of oxaliplatin builds. It tends to fade after treatment with the drug ends, but it may take 18 months to 2 years to go away completely. In a few cases it appears to be permanent.
