Yes, male, 64, chemo refractory, on allogeneic white cell transplant list at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Just started Imbruvica Thursday, January 23rd. Three pills a day with large glass of water. Do not take with food and at least two hours before or after a meal. No grapefruit juice, or Seville oranges. Absolutely no side effects so far. Will update weekly or bi weekly as my follow up tests provide kidney and liver function data. They say Imbruvica may take a month to start working and my white count may continue to climb for the first month I take Imbruvica. Will post my white and red counts next time and see the drop in CLL when we get into March if it is working and how well. Sounds like it may take a few months to start working. $91 @ pill, three a day, 9K for a months prescription. I am on Medicaid till I sign up for Medicare this summer. Medicaid has approved and is paying for my prescription.
