FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: VOTRIENT

User Comments:


For Renal Cell Carcinoma “Left nefrectomy 2007, Whipple 2008, left adrenalectomy 2009, 2 craniotomy (2010, 2017). Cancer found in 2007, had spread to Duodenum, lungs eventually adrenals and brain. IL2 in 2008 nailed the pulmonary mets and was NED for a few years before RCC showed up in adrenal and eventually brain (twice). Now RCC has reappeared on remaining adrenal. Using Votrient at a low (400mg) level, and first few months have shown a tremendous reduction (50%). Blessed to have only a few side effects compared to you guys.. . Keep up the energy. . keep up the fight.”

For Renal Cell Carcinoma “My mum is soon to be 90 and had never been in hospital only to have her four children. Mum got pneumonia and in November, 2017 was in hospital for 6 days. Diagnosed with pneumonia and an enlarged heart. Mid December, 2017 she came back to hospital with laboured breathing. Tests done showed collapsed lung due to fluid and to our shock later diagnosed with RCC, gone into Renal Artery and met to liver. By Wednesday 24th January 2018 she started on Votient, 2 a day. She already has white hair so I don’t think that will change but she was taken off blood pressure tablets in hospital (which she had been on for 50 years) as her blood presssure was perfect. On Votient it has gone up again so am taking her tomorrow to see if they want to put her back on them. Mum has 20 great grandchildren and 12 grandchildren and wants desperately to be able to go to my sons wedding in March and her birthday is 1st May. The oncologist is confident that she will make both….Here’s hoping”

For Renal Cell Carcinoma “I took 800 mg for my RCC for 7 weeks. The medicine made me very ill and caused a few pretty serious medical complication throughout my digestive system but…all signs of my stage 4 RCC are now gone. Votrient was a rough ride but in the end it worked beautifully. Praying I can stay cancer free forevermore.”

For Renal Cell Carcinoma “I have been on Votrient since April. Had to stop after 2 weeks because blood pressure put me in hospital being to high. Started taking it again at 1 a day . I am now up to 4(800mg) a day. Doing better the longer I take it. Have more good days where I feel like doing my house work. Food doesn’t taste good. I can eat fruit. Pineapple, grapes, canteloupe things like that. Even some Chinese food some days like sweet and sour chicken. Chicken tastes best . No beef or pork tastes good. Took my second CT Scan this week waiting on results. First one said it hadn’t grown any so that’s a plus. I too have many side effects. Diarrhea the worst. Fatigue,taste, white hair everywhere, my hands are beginning to get very rough also. I have bruises comes up too”

For Renal Cell Carcinoma “I was diagnosed with Stage IV renal cel carcinoma in January 2012. After two unsuccessful IL-2 treatments, I started taking Votrient in June 2012. At first I had all of the written side-effects but after completely changing my diet, they diminish significantly. Fatigue and whitening of my skin being my only problems. My last CT’s continue to show a all of my known tumors as principally stable. The drug works for me! 5 years and counting!”

For Soft Tissue Sarcoma “I am on Votrient from 1st Jun and yesterday had my first Scan (3 month on Votrient, 800mg dose). It has shown the marginal increase in the size of the tumor but SUV uptake has gone down from 4.6 to 2.7. As per my doctor, the tablets are working and we will continue the same.Is it really working?”
