My husband has CTCL and is being told to take Targretin. Can anyone tell me if they have taken it and what side effects they had? Thank you

Lois, There is an online support group of CTCL patients, many of whom are on Taragretin. They will be happy to share their experiences. Go to Association of Cancer Online Resources and look for the CTCL-MF group.

Thank you, Judy for that very helpful post.

It seems we haven't had a lot of people posting on here that have been using it.

We do, however, have more information on the medication here:

Can anyone post about experience using this drug?
