Tarceva and my appetite


Recommended Posts

Doc started me on Tarceva three weeks ago and after reading several posts here am feeling blessed, only a few pimples around my nose and occasional running to the bathroom but I am concerned that I have no appetite. It still hadn't come back after completing chemo in June and now this ... I can't afford to lose any more weight. Anyone else experiencing this same problem and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Give it a little time. My husband also had problems in the beginning and it got better over time. He would start to eat and thing feel full and couldn't finish his meal. His body adjusted -- hopefully you will too. Some members here have had to have the dosage lowered from 150 to 100mg.
