    Some nausea initially, however, went away after a few doses. This is my fourth cancer drug and I feel better on this one than all the others. Hopefully, it will keep me alive until another cure comes along.

    When I first started these meds I had some vomiting. Mostly once a day but there were days when I vomited twice. My doc lowered the dose and increased my anti nausea meds. I was best kind after that. No hand

    The generic from Mylan caused severe gastric pain and bloating after two days of use. Discontinued use and returned to Xeloda, which does not have this side effect. Maybe it was an allergic reaction to an inactive ingredient, but there is no way to find out. So, I am reluctant to try other generics.

    This drug has worked well on both my breast and liver to the point that I can no longer feel the lump on my breast or hardness in my liver.
