Altima is used as a maintenance drug for me. There was tumor shrinkage the first eight times taken. On the ninth time it stayed the same- stable. I will go for my tenth infusion in a week and we'll see. the only side effect i have is tiredness on day three and four. No nausea, hair loss, mouth sores. I was also given Alimta with carboplatin for six rounds.
