I have just had one treatment so I cannot truly rate the drug as yet. My first treatment was two weeks ago and so far I do not have any side effects that I know of.

11 months. Markers down so far. Warming drug to room temp helps make it less painful. Had cancerous tumor removed last month. Long trip 75 miles to have it injected. Joint pain, sore feet, skin and bones. As others said I am still here, but the quality of every day makes one wonder if it is worth it.

After a year of treatment, I continue to have a lot of pain at the injection site for a least 3 weeks after each shot. I also have joint pain, my arthritis has flaired up and I have neuropathy type pain in my feet.
