Avastin vs. Alimta


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone~

My mom was taken off Tarceva due to progression.

She will be getting Alimta every 3 weeks.

I see a mixed bag on here of people getting a mixture of both or one or the other.

Does anyone have any info on one over the other or the mixture??

Researcher Randy- Ya got anything good for me???


Kelly :D

John did both. He started with Alimta when the Tarceva failed and is now on Avastin. The Alimta is much harsher than the Avastin-- don't be afraid to ask for a break after treatment 4 or so if she needs it. John had to have some time to recoup before he could do his last Alimta treatment. Avastin is much easier. Good luck!
