I've taken my first week's dosage (300 mg per day) and have felt o.k., except for fatigue. I've completed the radiation and Temodar 40 day treatments, now on the monthly dose. So far so good. Wish I had more energy, and I sleep a lot.

So, it made the tumor stable for only a short time. Now on IV avastin and camptosar...so far so good, doing great.
