FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: NEXAVAR

User Comments:


For Hepatocellular Carcinoma “Was on Nexavar since May 2017. Basically stymied growth until Jan 2018. Side effects included diarrhea, hand/foot syndrome (dry skin) and some dry patches on face. That reduced when dosage reduced from 800mg/day to 600/mg day. Significant weight loss (about 100 lbs), but been consistent past 3 months at about 215. Wished it would have continued to work. Next up is Stivarga…starts 1/19/18. Overall side effects easy to handle. Copay assist card from mfg was nice.8”

For Hepatic Tumor “This medication nearly killed my grandmother. Way too many side effects-this medication did not agree with her body. Really took a toll on her health overall.”

For Hepatic Tumor “My father died just in his fist month with this medication. Too much side effect and he was feeling well before the medication and as soon he started he died.”

For Renal Cell Carcinoma “I have taken Nexavar for almost eight years, with stable disease. The most on going side effect is only the bottoms of my feet bother me, like they bother a diabetic, I have to buy cotton socks, and they bother me during each season than there ok after a few weeks. I have worked five days a week, this whole time and only missed a day because of a doctors appointment every three months.”

For Hepatocellular Carcinoma “I have been using Nexavar for Hepatocellular Carcinoma for nearly a year, I did develop a skin rash but nothing too distressing. I had slight hair loss and thinning but its starting to grow back. I also developed mild colitis but have found Omeprazole helps really well. I also have insomnia but my doctor prescribed sleeping tablets which I use occasionally. Apart from occasional tumor pain I feel great, and I am on the maximum dose. The tumor has shrunk considerably and is now stable, my blood tests are normal.”
