I've been on Crizotnib for about 6 months now. It seems to be working overall but there's now question as to if my body is starting to figure it out...in which case I'll have to switch to something else. Overall, this medication has been wonderful. Only had a little diarreah in the bigginning but only a couple times. I doubt I would be alive right now if it wasn't for this drug.

All Lung Cancer patients should have a biopsy tested for ALK. Crizotinib (Xalkori) has virtually none of the miserable side effects of traditional Chemo.
