FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: GILOTRIF

User Comments:


For Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer “I started Gilotrif/Afatinib 7 days ago. I can feel tumor shrinking, I can move now -I use to be so stiffed. I was diagnosed NSCLC Lung Cancer stage 4. My diagnoses is EGFR exon 19 so this meds is perfect for my mutation.After one day on Gilotrif, I had diaarhea. But the doctor gives me Loperamide to counter the side effect. Also – I avoided food – I simpy stay on BRATT’s diet means clean food. So I was able to manage the diaarhea. Well – I got acne rash on my face. That does not bother me.The worst side effect is the SORE mouth. I cannot eat nor swallow any liquid. My Oncologist gives prescribed a meds called ” Magic mouthwash & Nystatin Oral suspension” . Hopefully I can manage the sore mouth, then I am a happy user..”
