My husband's Dr. Said you take it until either it stops working or it becomes toxic. Some people
In trials have been on it over two years. It is not a limited therapy like chemo; it is a daily medicine.
Hope you are having a good response.

I have been on it for 7 months. In remission. I was told they will monitor me every three months with bloodwork in between. I am stable and counts are all normal. Hopefully they will developed a time release dose that will be better and cheaper. Its working for a big majority of its users.

Glad to hear you are in remission. My husband has been on 3 months, so we are hoping white count will start going down; other counts are good.
