This is perfect medication for me 40 mg EGFR exon 19 mutation, the diaarhea got this in control, use Bratt's diet. My problem is the sore mouth, I cannot eat and swallow, I have to stop for 3 days. Taking Magic mouthwash and Nystatin to help the issue.

Side effects were mild initially and most have subsided except for one.....diarrhea. It is getting better considering I have been on the medication for 6 months. My dose is 30mg.

Because of side effects, mainly diarrhea and weight loss, my dosage was reduced from 40 mg. to 30 mg. I gave it a 5 star for satisfaction because it's working!

Diarrhea continues to be problematic the day after taking the medication. Teary eyes and redness around the eyes are most annoying also. I am taking the medication every other day. However these are minor compared to the benefit I am experiencing with this drug.
