Thank you for taking the time to read my review. I am a liver transplant recipient. I was prescribed Zortress while still taking prograf for a period of 3 years. My immune system was suppressed to a point of total illness. Every germ possible attacked my body to the point of death. I made a emergency appointment with my doctor only to be vomiting by the time I got to his office. I had boils on my face with fever blisters covering my nose and mouth. My doctor took me off of Zortress immediately and put me on antibiotics and a inhaler. Read all presciption info including side effects and caution labels. Zortress can be fatal. Please discuss with your doctor if he listens your concerns with all medications.

My only problem is the packaging. It takes me close to an hour to remove all the pills from its packet. Does anyone else have this problem?

I had my left kidney removed June 2016 and part of my left lung as it had metas. So far the generic Zortress (Everolimus) from helping to shrink my tumors in my lungs.I was on Sutent and very ill and on another drug that did not work. The only side effect is a slight cough and some fatigue. God bless all of you
