Began taking this in conjunction with Radiation Therapy following debulking surgery for tumor right frontal lobe. When radiation therapy was completed, I had a few weeks off to let brain swelling subside, now I am back on Temozolomide at higher strength 5 days per month(or 5/23 cycle). I recently finished 18th cycle and Oncologist reports it is keeping my condition stable. As MRI scans may remain stable, I am physically feeling more run down as the effects are cumulative. I am thinking about stopping this medication soon, but am afraid of tumor growing back. Side effects so far- not terrible for me, but everyone is different. Read More Read Less

melanoma metastecised from foot to lungs. this medication nearly did me in, i lost approximately 40 lbs. and was nauseated all the time, was weak and sick and so i ceased using it. it lessened the mass however. am afraid to go back to it. am now in hospice and doing so well, they want to take me off hospice. i am having a p.t. scan on nov. 8 and i guess we will go from there. if i am better and go off hospice, i am considering going back to temodar at a much lower dosage to see if that will work. thank you for giving me this opportunity to share my experience with you. will you respond? helen surkinRead More Read Less
