My Mom is having trouble starting her chemo schedule, she has tried twice (taxo/carbo and taxotere) and had allergic reactions both times.

She is scheduled to start Alimpta next week. I've done some web research on Alimpta, but nothing beats first hand information. Has anyone been on this? What was the worst side effect for you? My Mom has been told she will probably not lose her hair on this treatment, which I think she is happy about.

I have just had my 2nd round of Alimta. Only side effect is a little more tired than when on Avastin only but then Avastin was a cake-walk. I have heard some people become more SOB on Alimta but for me so far so good!! And my hair had just grown back in and I have not re-lost it so that is a big plus!!

Wishing you lots of luck!!
