Supposedly, the chemo is well tolerated by many but I read that side effects get worse over time.
Are you taking the pills orally , or by infusion.
If you are taking them by mouth, as your pharmacist to give you the kit and literature the manufacturer offers and provides free for patients. It has very good iinformation in it, and there is really so much they advise you to not do, or do, or not eat, and on and on. None of this my doctor told me. (I myself had to stop immediately but I don't think I need to go into this because my doctor said he has never seen anything like my experiences, and within an hour of taking the drug) I also think my onco overdosed me. but I also have other medical problems that may have contributed.
anyway, my doctor said xeloda is well and better tolerated by more women than most other chemo, and that is all I know. KAT
