My wife took it after recurrence after 4 years of NED. It is doing the job and shrinking new growth. It is not an easy drug to take, I know. She is happy to keep taking it as long as it is showing progress working again. On treatment day she naps, but the following days are progressively better and by day 3 she is back to normal.

Good luck!
