User Reviews for Dabrafenib to treat Melanoma, Metastatic

Also known as: Tafinlar

Steelers!!! · Taken for 6 months to 1 year November 4, 2019

Tafinlar (dabrafenib): “Had wide excision of Melanoma on my back. Had radical lymph node neck and under arm dissection. Found cancer in 3 nodes under arm, 1 in my neck. Been on Tafinlar for 9 months. No signs of recurrence. Have had mild to severe side effects, but they are worth it if it keeps the melanoma away. Mainly fever, sweats, and headaches.”

Tafinlar (dabrafenib): “Have been on Dabrafenib and Mekinist combined for 2 weeks. Melanomas have reduced in size and blood test results were good. Hoping it continues but it is only early days for me. Nausea, pain, itchiness. Taking antihistamines. Melanomas in spine so pain expected.”
