I'm sorry to hear you have the need to find us, but I am glad you did.

Please go to the NSCLC Forum and check it out regarding ALIMTA. You will find many of our members have been on it or are just starting it. Just browse over other forums here. You'll learn a lot!

Good luck and best wishes,

Hi Mary, welcome,

I did the Alimta thing last spring. I had a 30% reduction in the original tumor after the 4th treatment. Stable after the 6th. Side effects were the normal nausea, fatigue and SOB and it seemed to increase as time went on. The steroids, Decadron, did a pretty good job of controlling the side effects.

The side effects varies with different people. Some people have very few and others have violent reactions. Hope it works for your husband.
