    Almost 2 yrs on drug. Qtrly CAT scans show no added growth in tumors. Side effects: diarreah, lethargic, very tired, no taste, even mild foods burn (use Biotene instead of reg toothpaste), high blood preassure, elevated thyroid counts. All side effects controllable with drugs or OTC medications. On balance, a good drug for RCC.
