    What side effects have others had from Temador? Has anyone had problems with weight gain and fluid retention?

    Have the side effects gotten worse each round?

      welcome to the site! Sometimes it takes a while for someone who has had exactly what you have had to see your post. It might take a while. One way to find people a little quicker is to go to the list on the right of the page, and click on your type of cancer, you will see a list of people that are registered under that type. You can send them an individual msg. that way.
      Hope your doing OK

      I have had fluid retention from Temador. I am now on the 5 out of 28 day cycle, so I know when I am off of T my weight goes to normal, but when I am on it, I gain it back.....oh well....I am glad to hear others with the same problem! The only other problem I have had with T was when I initially took it I was nauseated. But I take zohpran right before I take the pills and I take a big glass of water......Bingo, no more nausea.

      I am on Temador at 160mg every night. Three wks on chemo as of now. Last week my feet began to swell so bad that I could not wear my shoes and it hurt to walk. My dr. gave me a diaretic and it did the job perfectly. Speak to your dr. right away and get the help you need. It can be taken care of so done worry. I tell my drs. everything all the time and have very little side effects. I am also on radiation and am in my 4 th wk of that. Stay strong, no question is stupid when it comes to fighting cancer.
