Review by Anonymous (taken for 1 to 6 months):
For Pancreatic Cancer: Even though I was told this was well tolerated, I was miserable with nausea and vomiting.

Review by NYwhipple (taken for 1 to 2 years):
For Pancreatic Cancer: While my oncologist could not conclude that GEMZAR was effective in my case, I have survived late-stage metastatic pancreatic cancer for more than 6 years since beginning my first (of 2) treatment regimen. Absent any other explanation, I must consider the possibility that GEMZAR was instrumental in my survival. I've been told I have exceptional tolerance for GEMZAR, and I ultimately had 54 infusions over 2-and-a-half years, with a one-year gap. The side effects were minimal in my case (most frequent: flu-like symptoms, mild infections), and I was able to conduct relatively normal work & life routines, although I frequently had to battle a high level of fatigue.
