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.

Last 3 days of use during 4 wk duration felt very lethargic with sore feet and hands. Forced myself to go walking every day, this helped with my healing process.Loose stool and high blood pressure last week of medication. Easily corrected with drugs.
