I tried this medication while it was going through the clinical trials. There was 31 of us on the trial. My bone marrow function went from 50% to 20% with one cycle. I was removed from the trial and send start to having a stem cell transplant. I thought I was going to die taking this medication. I have had 2 stem cell tranplants to date and I have been in remission for 7 yrs now.

diagnosed with amml 2015 - Jan 2016 given 5-8month life expectancy - complete my 10th cycle today! 3 month s ago placed on a 5 week cycle - have 190mg per day over 7 days. During injections experience nausea, dry reaching, headaches - some constipation due to nausea medication - some control with prunes & coloxyl & senna . 2-3 days after injections finish improvement in general well being headache rarer, nausea less - to the point where 1 week after injections have returned to some sort of normality - even allowing a 12 day fly/drive/van tour of central Australia in November 2016. Then the grind starts again!!!!!! Have to remember the good days to get through the bad ones!
