I did not start experiencing the stomach discomfort until the last couple of months of treatment. The pre medication helped cut down on the diarreah

My husband was forced to take this drug due to a "nationwide shortage" of Etoposide when he went in to begin his day 2 of the second session of chemo. His first session used Cisplatin and Etoposide with no severe side effects. just 2 doses of this Camptosar nearly killed him. This is the worst chemo drug and I would not recommend it for anyone! We just went back to have Day 1 of his 3rd session yesterday, only to find out that his white blood cell count was 700 (too low to even have a chemo treatment) - now we have to wait yet another week, this is so very hard to handle!

Diarrhea four to five times a day ~ it comes suddenly and agree with other reviewer that it is difficult to leave the house! Also constant nose drip and raw stomach feeling. Good news though, after 3 months new tumor growth disappeared and soon will take MRI to see what 3 more months has accomplished.

side effects were terrible. I could not leave my house as I never knew when I would have to run to the bathroom. Food went straight through and I lost 30 pounds.
