Reviews for Irinotecan
"This chemotherapy treatment was not good for my husband. He passed away 3 months after taking this treatment. He had every side affect (dark urine, severe dehydration slurred speech, diarrhea coordination, weakness , trouble speaking and walking , yellow skin bleeding ,jaundice and rectal bleeding. He was Ok before treatment. Great man. This drug should not be given if a patient has liver or kidney problems and he did. Great man and he will always be in my heart. This should have never happened. There are many new drugs, why this choice!!!!!$"
