I just started taking Votrient yesterday after enduring 6 rounds of 14-days of continuous Ifex each month. It didn't make me sick, but I had a tremendous amount of anxiety bc of the dexamethazone which I received 3 weeks out of the month. So very glad to be done with that. I'm praying that the Votrient works. I used Gleevec before and I had stabilization of my tumors for 2 years. Just need more time for new research and discoveries since I have pretty much exhausted the chemos for SS.
I'm a little concerned about the high blood pressure side effect of this drug since it was reported as the highest percentage in the common side effects in studies. Anyone having been on this drug, I would love to hear from you about your experience.
