    I took 800 mg for my RCC for 2 months. I can not afford it, then my doctor recommend me to buy from bonhoa.com which price is only 8% of US package but is also brand one from India. All signs of my stage 4 RCC are now gone. Votrient was a rough ride but in the end it worked beautifully. Praying I can stay cancer free forever more

    On Votrient since 2018 after Sutent. I bought the India package which the price is only 8% of US package. Results were good. After six months - no sign of metastasis and have been in remission since 2019. Votient had the effect of high blood pressure which was mitigated by Procardia. As of late, have lost weight and am having some digestive issues

    I have had a very poor experience. Could only tolerate 7 doses, and it is taking me several days to recover. Still haven't. Mouth sores, hypertension, diarrhea, muscle and joint pain, loss of taste.
