I have been on drug for 8 weeks, first scan came back w/ "stable disease" status. no new growths. Dr now wants to increase my dose to 7mg twice daily. Lots of side effects for me. Most all are countered by another drug: increase blood pressure: changed HBP drugs, thyroid problems: increased synthroid, Diarrhea: now take lomotil, Fatigue: still a problem, Muscle and joint pain: vicodin ...

Apparently this drug is doing wonders for the RCC I have. However, I lost 60 lbs and didn't realize it was due to this drug. I now have severe edema in my legs and feet, something that 2 doctors can't seem to fix. I wear compression stockings every waking moment and they seem to help with the pain, but that's not a cure, just a bandaide. I take 80 mgs daily of furosemide (a diuretic) as a B.P control, but it has done nothing for the edema. Terrible living with "fat" feet because I haven;t got one pair of shoes that fit. Now I'm stuck with slippers 24/7. I developed a really bad horse voice which finally has started to go away after 4 months. Now I'm a firm believer that it will not be the cancer that kills me, but the cure. Read More Read Less

I have been on this for 3 weeks. Because it is a small pill it is easier to take. I developed soreness in mouth and cannot hot or spicy food. The skin of the feet is peeling and cracking. Developed hoarseness of voice. Feeling extremely tired. Previously I was on votrin for 3 months which shrunk the tumor somewhat. Because I developed one new spot I was started on Inlyta. I developed high blood pressure while I was on votrin. When I stopped Votrin, the blood pressure was normalized. Once I started Inlyta , the blood pressure rose again and I am on the blood pressure medication againRead More Read Less

Most all are countered by another drug: increase blood pressure: changed HBP drugs, thyroid problems: increased synthroid, Diarrhea: now take lomotil, Fatigue: still a problem, Muscle and joint pain: vicodin helps, voice changes, dry skin, are my major complaints. But if it keeps the cancer at bay, I can deal w/ the side effectsRead More Read Less

I really don't know yet about effectiveness b/c I've only been on it about 5 weeks. Main side effect so far is moderately severe hoarseness.
