Our new game plan, Alimta


Recommended Posts


Glad you have a new game plan. My husband, Mike, just started on Alimta this past Monday. It's too early yet to know how it will affect him. He was also given a B12 shot , in the muscle, and prescribed folic acid pills daily . Those are given as premeds, along with dexamethasone and anti nausea medicine. The purpose of the B12 and folic acid was to prevent mouth sores, I believe. The entire treatment time, including premeds was only about 30 minutes. So far, so good for Mike. Today he was a bit tired, but if that's the only side effect, we will take it.. :D We will be keeping a close eye on you and keeping you in our prayers as well. Take care...
