    India generic Tykerb from bonhoa.com really give me new life. I takes tykerb 5 pills daily at one time for 3 weeks and off for 1 week per doctor, satisfied. The generic lapatinib 250mg and Xeloda have stabilized my tumors. My family can not afford the brand one, but generic save my life. God bless all of you.
