Took for 4 days and felt like sh--. Started reading all reviews and quickly came to decision that 5-10 years on this drug was not worth the poor quality of life it causes. Now I am taking natural supplement OncoPLEX. I can't tell you if it works but I have no side effects and will continue to take it. Good luck to all of you that stay on drugs.

I have been using for 4-1/2 years after refusing chemotherapy. I have been been experiencing many of the side effects others have mentioned. Anemia, joint pain, weight gain, hard stomach, swelling. My Dr. has said we will evaluate discontinuing at five years soon as there are not many statistics on people my age. 88 years old. I would like to get rid of these side effects.
