... does is slepp or doze,but he was really bad before he started taking the drug. He can rouse good, but mostly sleeps all day long
Fatigue is a common side effect of Zelboraf. I don't know of anyone taking this medicine but I imagine the fatigue must hit really hard.
Zelboraf (vemurafenib) is an oral, small molecule, kinase inhibitor indicated for the treatment of patients with BRAFV600E mutation-positive inoperable or metastatic melanoma as detected by an FDA-approved test. Zelboraf is not recommended for use in melanoma patients who lack the BRAFV600E mutation.
My Dad is on Zelboraf as well. He is extreamly tired all he does is sleep all day and all night. He has become unresponsive in a sense since he no longer interacts with the family. He has a terriable time eating actually he hardly eats. He has started to lose his fine motor functions ex. like picking up a fork. I was wondering if your husband has experienced any other side effects? My family and I are having a hard time finding anything that talks about the side effects he is experiencing.
I hope your husband is doing well.
