    Opdivo

    I was hoping to receive feedback from those of you with small cell lung cancer, receiving Opdivo treatments. How long you have been on it and the side effects you’ve experienced.

    I have been on Opdivo since March, 2019 and recently have taken a break from treatment as a result of side effects.

    Thank you in advance for any feedback.

      I have not been on it but several people that are in my clinic that are on it and not many have any serious problems.

      I was on Opdivo from July 2013 until May 2019 for NSCLC. I got off of it because i started developing a rash and had a couple of other issues that may have been Opdivo related: swelling and dry eyes.

      The rash went away after stopping treatment. The other 2 issues didn't.

      Thank you all for replying to my post.

      It’s helpful to learn what others have dealt with when on the same treatment. Each of us react differently while going through this.
