5,000 mg a day in two week cycles actually tomorrow is my last cycle of six months yay but the most issues is fatigue other than that no side effects that are that bad a little diarrhea some lack of appetite and the fatigue
Good luck to Ron I hope he does well
Nichoebe wrote:Hello I just wanted to mention that Xeloda or capacetabine is calculated by body mass I'm 6'2" and 240lbs so I take 2500 mg twice a day for 5000 mg total per day when I took it with radiation it was less 4000 mg per day but this time it started at 6000 mg a day but I had horrible neuropathy in my feet and hands so my oncologist knocked it down to 5000 mg and as I said in my last text I've had very little side effects my main thoughts as far as your husband Ron goes is why he's only taking 1000 mg a day that's so low a dose as it goes by body size it just strikes me as odd maybe question oncologist as to how he comes up with that dosage
Hope this helps
