    Is there anyone out there taking Tarceva?

    I'd love to share experiences, especially with anyone taking Tarceva.

      I know so many people on Tarceva..all doing very very well. Still working still living a normal life except for a bit of stomach bloat and frizzy hair. But one of my close friends in California is a runner and full time Nurce Practicner and does not skip a beat.
      Been on it three years.

      I think there is a blog Tarceva dudes and dudetts.

      Good news is a number of drugs in the pipeline to counter any possible resistance.

      yes. my mother just started taking 150 mg of Tarceva. What has your experience been with the drug. She has been diagnosed with NSCLC Adenocarcenoma with a new lytic lesion in the right iliac bone. Last year she had an upper left lobectomy and 4 treatments of carboplatin/pemetrexid.
