PEMETREXED: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: “Just finished my 30th cycle today, and overall my side effects have been very tollerable. I have stage 4 bladder cancer and was originally given 3 months of life expectancy. This diagnosis was from the Mayo Clinic. After initial treatments of radiation and 7 or 8 cycles of carboplaten and gemzar ( not sure of chemo spelling). I have been on Alimpta ever since with little to no further cancer groath. Overall 2 years and 4 months since treatment began. To say I’m happy is an understatement !!!”

Alimta (pemetrexed) for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: “My 81 y/o mother received 6 infusions of Alimta for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. Her cancer has now shrank. No new cancers.The most severe side effect she suffered was fatigue and water retention. But that was managed by a change in her diuretic medications.”
