Temador

My sister is going to be going on a fairly new drug called Temador. Has anyone been on it. If so, what side effects did you experience. My sister was dxed with sclc July 2004. 7 lesions to the brain were discovered in June 2005. She received whole brain radiation, which reduced her lesions to 4. Then she received the Gamma Knife to zap that other 4. Her oncologist is getting ready to put her on Temador and I was wondering if anyone else has been on this oral chemo.

Lynne,

Earl was on Temodar. If I remember, he took 3 pills at bedtime each night for 5 nights and then no pills for 23 days. He experienced some nausea and vomiting the first night each time. But then he took anti nausea medication and that seemed to help. Taking it at bedtime is supposed to help control the nausea. This drug is supposed to cross the blood/brain barrier. Prays that it works.
