Andrea Posted December 1, 2004 Share Posted December 1, 2004 Well my mom was on Iresssa for maintence of remission, but had to stop per doctor orders due to "explosive" bathroom issues. The onc said he would try Tarceva once it was FDA approved. Well that time has come, so she will be starting Tarceva as soon as we locate a pharmacy that can get it and see if insurance covers it. Anyone on Tarceva? If so, how are you doing on it? I am not too optomistic b/c I heard that Tarceva and Iressa are like Coke and Pepsi, not much difference, so if Iressa side effects were intolerable for her, Tarceva is likely to be also. But you never know Sending hugs kisses and cancer cure wishes to ya'll! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
