Took drug for 8 days but suffered a Grand Mal Seizure and medication stopped. Been without drug for 6 days now. Medical professionals unable to pinpoint what triggered seizure at this time. Had very few side effects during time I took the drug. At this time not sure if I will resume taking this drug.

My Husband was on this medication only for 4 weeks 5mg po twice a day for a treatment of RCC 4 after Sutent 50mg po for 4weeks and Torisel 4 doses IV was ineffective. Killed him completely. First it made him lose appetite completely that I only was seeing skin and bones. Then I think instead of stopping the growth of cancer cells it burned all normal cells in his body, plus this medication cause collection of fluids in his lungs till to the point that doctors decided to start my husband on diuretics to drain even the water from the body, made him very anxious and sleepy most of the time. From my own terrible experience from this drug i want to warn you guys if you see that main drug as Sutent didn't work on your body don't make your love one suffer even more by using Inlyta. I'm feeling so much guilt that i accept doctors decision to keep trying different drugs on my husband which made him suffer more and killed him even faster.I knew that Inlyta was a new drug, I couldn't find too many reviews on it before we started the treatment. But I'm sorry to say folks don't even bother to start this terrible drug that supposely should prolong your life for 6-7 months. Not true it dries your body, makes you so weak to the point you that you just want to lie down and asking god to take you faster in Peace.Read More Read Less
