    Cabometyx, who has taken Cabometyx and what were you side-effects?

    I just started taking this drug and wanted to see what the common side-effects might be for me. Thanks, Greg

      My husband started this in March at 60mg. Got mouth sores, nose sores, diarrhea, gut pain. Had to take a week break after 1 month, then started 40mg. After 2 weeks had the same side effects, and stopped for a week. Also very low blood pressure. Restarted at 20 mg. Got very sick so went 1 week on, and 1 week off. Now trying every other day. Good luck!

      My husband couldn't tolerate sutent either! His BP was high at first...then so low he had to quit his BP meds. I hope it works for you!
