    Would like to hear from Patients using Tagrisso

    How is it going. How long have you been using it. Are you using it as a first line treatment?
    Anything else you can add is appreciated

      Hi Callake, I wasn't eligible for Tagrisso, but I have friends who have taken it successfully. Unfortunately, I do not know if they got the drug as a first-line treatment. I do know that the ones I know are very active while on the drug so any side effects from the pills have not been debilitating for them. They're living life.

      Best of luck! How is your wife responding to it?

      If you type the name of the drug into the search box on the Experiences tab you will get several conversations that people are talking about Tagrisso. Best to you.

      My brother has been taking Tagrisso (80 mg pill daily) for 37 days so far as a treatment after 15 days of brain radiation. No chemo or immunotherapy prior. Minimal side effects as only loss of appetite which can be attributed to the radiation treatments. He still has some dizziness which likely attributed to the metastasized lung cancer to the brain. Will have a petscan Oct 23 which is 48 days after taking Tagrisso to see how the drug has worked. Lack of appetite has been the challenge as initial weight loss was 30# and has gained back 7#.
