Targeted therapy - WonderWoman

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Non-Small Cell, Lung Cancer. Posted on July 18, 2012 View this journey (4 Experiences)

Markers on my cancer indicated that Tarceva would be the drug of choice to combat it. I began taking Tarceva in January of 2011 and within two months I had an ulcer in my esophagus. This was treated with Carafate suspension. The need to take these meds on an empty stomach, with a window of two hours before a meal or one hour after, along with other meds I take, had me on a 24 hour schedule with wake ups at 2AM and 5AM. Interrupted sleep was not fun.

Easy to Do: Agree
