mouth ulcers, nausea, renal failure it was prescribed for arthritis has kidney diease ## How are they doing, now? Those are possible side effects, but renal failure is kind of iffy, that doesn't happen in most people that take it. Since they have kidney disease, is it possibly they already had kidney failure? The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, seizures, bruising, and diarrhea.

high bilirubin
4 Replies RSS Share
My mom received 2 doses of kadcyla. However her bilirubin count shot up to 2.98 & is unable to continue the treatment. Can u help? ## From what I've read, bilirubin is a yellowish pigment found in bile (a fluid made by the liver). Apparently, it is normal to have some bilirubin in your blood. However, normal levels are reportedly in the range of 0.3 to 1.9 mg/dL The article below discusses various tests that are done to measure the amount of bilirubin in the blood (and what it means to have high levels of it): In some patients, different types of cancer medication (such as kadcyla) could just end up doing more harm than good. So I would probably look at it as a good thing and not get discouraged by the discontinuation of the drug. ...

h 86 cancer cure
118 Replies RSS Share
I received the same. It was from HSI (Health Sciences Institute) in an ad for a "free" book titled Miracles From the Vault: Anthology of Underground Cures by Jenny Thompson. It was "free" with a newsletter subscription... The "infomercial" was vague about most of the "top seven" cures it supposedly detailed. H-86 was the first of them. It supposedly reduces (attacks) cancers but I cannot find any reference to it on the web other than questions. I've found many people on the web asking about this and the others (nitric oxide, policosanol, lion's mane mushroom) which are well known but no answers about the H-86. The closest thing I could find was a rabbit derived LHPP antibody but I think this is NOT the substance in question. ## i need daily health...

Letrozole Tablet color?
2 Replies RSS Share
I just received letrozole 2.5 mg tablets (generic for Femara) which are supposed to be yellow but are a mauve color not yellow? They are round shaped with N stamped on 1st side & L on the 2nd side. I am concerned about the color. these pills were produced by Breckenridge co. ## Our listings also say they should be yellow. The color, however, doesn't actually mean anything, so the company may have changed it, but I'd suggest double checking with your pharmacy to be certain. Have you contacted them to ask? ## MY tabs are also peach or a more mauve color, FROM BRECKINRIDGE! I tried to send them a question but only pharmacists and doctors can question them. Very irresponsible of this company to not update their description.

I found a small white, square pill on my floor with the letter P with a circle around the P on one side and the letter M over 5 on the other. I'm wondering what it is so I can try to see where it may have come from? ## Did you ever find out? I found the same one. ## I found one too and it's my moms. She has terminal cancer. ## Hey did you find out what this was? I found one in my hallway in the apartment. ## I am trying to find out the same thing! I found these pills, and cannot find info on them anywhere online. An answer on this site suggested maybe a cancer medication? Can anyone advise?

all information about this medication ## I have been told to apply Efudex to my lower lip, isn't this crazy? ## Not really. It is listed in the drug monograph that it can be used topically to treat certain cancerous or possibly cancerous conditions. ## Has anyone used it on their lips? Won't it just keep bleeding non-stop? ## Heidi- I've used it on my lips three times. Each time it was an application morning and at bedtime. Though about the second week it gets very sensitive and blister-like lesions appear that means it's working. I applied a product called Acquafor (like Vaseline Jelly) to seal it and protect). The healing takes some time but the outcome is worth it. ## I just used Efudex for 2 weeks on lower lip. from day 7 blistered and ulcerated and wept and crusted....

My husband has been pazopanib for one week. The side effects are, loss of appetite, blisters on his tongue, and fatigue. Does it get better the longer you are on it? Does your body adjust? Or is this how his life is going to be? I have lots of questions for someone who has been on Pazopanib, and would love to talk to someone. {edited for privacy} ## My husband has been on it for about 2 weeks and he's having the same side effects so I would also like to know that answer to this question. ## These are listed by the FDA as normal side effects of this medication. Unfortunately, most cancer medications are very harsh and such side effects rarely go away, but tend to continue for the duration of treatment. Other side effects, may also include hypertension, diarrhea, vomiting, insomnia an...

I have used Efudix twice in two years and found it very good
Post a Reply Share
At 94 this is my second year of need and I think I did wrong by ignoring the first sign of an eruption. Last year it was just one spot on my forehead and took five weeks to clear. This year I ignored the first signs and continued long walks in the cold windy weather and that I think caused the spread from one side of my head to the other. As I cannot stand attending a doctor and it takes three weeks to see one,I used out of date Efudix and it worked as well as ever. My only problem now is hiding the scabs and removing the "snow storm" from wherever I walk. Please can anyone tell me whether if I have another attack will an immediate application of Efudix prevent it spreading? My health otherwise is as near perfect as I could expect.

Does Gleevec work for accute eczema and accute dry skin as per rumor ? ## I don't have any information on this, but I can tell you that there have been several people posting that it has worked and several others who have heard of it and have been asking the same types of questions Gleevec is currently approved to treat certain types of cancer, so the side effects of these types of medications can be pretty prodigious and I am not certain it would be worth using to treat a skin condition. You can read more on it here: Does anyone else have experience using this? ## It gave me a rash and bad itching. Took a low dose of Prednisone to get rid of it. I would say NO !

Can anyone else tell me how long gone after starting gleevec gleevec will side effects show hp? ## It can vary from person to person, some people may experience side effects upon the first dose, but for others it may take a week or so, and there are always some people that don't experience any. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, vomiting, skin rash, diarrhea and joint/muscle pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I vaguely remember being told Gleevec and antihistamines do not mix, can anyone confirm this ?

if we are suffering from cancer than what can we do

if we are suffering from cancer than what can we do ## There are various treatment options available, it really depends on what type of cancer and what country you are in. Many people with some types of it live long lives, now, as compared to several years ago, where the prognosis wasn't good for anyone. What country are you in and what type of cancer? ## Just wanted to add to this; depending on the type of cancer your dealing with, there are various dietary habits that promote your ability to be cancer free. I can suggest a few changes that would be very beneficial in this regard, such as: -lowering your protein and fat intake to only 10% of your total calories for the day. -eat a diet that consists primarily of fresh raw fruits and veggies (with a higher emphasis on fruit for calo...

I have been fighting cancer for 5 years and still going. I have tried so many things like this that are empty promises. All they do is put down chemo, which has been the ONLY thing keeping me alive so far. I did this fatal Mexico heat treatments with they charged me $40,000 for two weeks of treatments and they almost killed me because they did NOTHING to help me. I know everyone has a special ingratiate to kill the cancer they have, but I have yet to find mine, but I do know there are people who take advantage of us, because we will do almost anything to stay alive. ## Hello, JOJO!

Nexavar side effects
Post a Reply Share
Hi. My 18 year old son has AML with flt-3 gene mutation. He has been using a low dose of Nexavar 200mg 2x/day for 2 weeks. It seems to be working after 6 courses of chemo treatments had been ineffective. However, the side effects are severe; nausea, vomiting & diarrhea. Does anyone have any advice on what worked for them? We stay in South Africa, so medications available are quite limited. Looking forward to hearing from others in a similar situation. Kind regards.

Long term survival

Would like to hear from anyone who has been a long-term user of Nexavar. I am on my 45th cycle and my oncologist has not had anyone else stay on it for such a long time. We are looking for information on side-effects for long-term users. ## From the lack of responses, I am wondering if Nexavar is used in the USA. I am in South Africa, and we do not have a lot of the facilities, options and drugs that are available there. ## It is available here in the U.S., it just appears that it not the common first choice treatment option. I'm sorry, I wish you'd have gotten some responses and had been provided with more information. I'm glancing over the information listed by the FDA, but there's really nothing on here regarding long-term use. Some of the serious side effects that th...
