For Carcinoid Tumor "I lost weight over period this medicine was taken. I also needed to make too many trips to bathroom. I can't regain the lost weight or strength. I'm very tired. The doctor can't tell me if it helps the tumors secretion, or will I ever be right."
- Taken for 1 to 6 months

For Carcinoid Tumor "Is it Sandostatin?! It's impossible After about two years of dealing with HCC [hepatocellular carcinoma] , I had my first dose of Sandostatine LAR IM every 4 weeks Now I going to have my fourth dose But ... The FDG PET scan & DOTA PET scan, both showed no more of liver (3) tumors no more of (multi) bone metastasis, also lungs is clear, whole the body no lesions no metastasis. I have to wait it's impossible to believe that, grade 4 liver cancer gone I just 2 months."
- Taken for 10 years or more

For Carcinoid Tumor "Been on Sandostatin LAR for 19 years now and has definitely kept me going. Side effects were almost non-existent, a bit uncomfortable being administered due to the thickness of needle and consistency of mix, but over quickly. In the last 18 months, it's battling to hold back my markers (Chromogranin). Last 12 months up'd dose to every 3 weeks (from every 4 weeks), with little change. You'd think after 19 years, Novartis would drop the cost and also develop the next level.... sadly not!"
- Taken for 2 to 5 years

For Carcinoid Tumor "Has slowed tumor progression, covered by insurance and Novartis has a copayment program that made my $50 copayment $25. Haven’t really had any side effects that I can say were caused by this drug. My life feels pretty normal to what it was before getting cancer."
- Taken for less than 1 month
