User Comments:

For Ovarian Cancer “This Drug has been a blessing for me , I have been on it now for 11 months with very little side effects, once my Doctors figured out the right dosage I have felt good, I take one pill every other day, my Ca125 has came down to a safe range so needless to say it is killing the cancer, today my ca125 is at 14”

For Peritoneal Cancer “Diagnosed with stage 3 Ovarian cancer, which started as peritoneal, 2015. 17 months remission then cancer returned (peritoneal) A few months ago started Zejula. I had very, very mild side effects for about 3 weeks. Dull headaches, fatigue… but that was about it. I was very lucky my body took to it well. Stopped taking anti-nausea pills when side effects stopped. I’m rating this an 8 only because I haven’t been taking it long and don’t know if my cancer will return, therefore knowing if the Zejula will have prolonged remission.I was told before I started that if I did have problems they would drop down to 100mg until I got used to it then gradually up it to the 300mg. So there is that option, but so far so good.”

For Ovarian Cancer “This drug is killing me. I would take chemo over this drug in a heartbeat. It has caused me the worst weakness I have ever felt. I have been taking 300 mg daily for almost 3 months and already had a transfusion. The worst part is that my ca125 is slowly creeping up. Additionally, since the drug is so new, there is not a lot of information out there that I can relate to. I feel like this drug will kill me before the cancer does. It has taken my strength to the point that I can’t enjoy the things I’ve always enjoyed in the past…even during all of my past chemos.”
