    Temodar

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    For the first few months everything seemed to be going well; however, now in my ninth month taking the Temodar, I'm having a hard time "bouncing" back after the prescribed time (5 straight days, once a month). I'm tired, have headaches, stomach pain, and joint pain. I don't feel I have control over my body and that's frustrating.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
