Provenge (sipuleucel-T): “I am wife of man who just completed Provenge series. Can't really rate this as effects not yet known, so rated it average - for now. He has felt flu-like (fatigue, muscle aches, joint pains) for longer than the one or 2 days noted in the literature on Provenge. His PSA has increased quite a bit in the weeks following the beginning of the Provenge. Not clear why this is. Could be the course of the disease, or could be the effects of prostate cells being killed and fragmented, which would be a positive thing.”

Provenge (sipuleucel-T): “Finished my last treatment in June 2019, when I started the treatment was painting my house and had no major health problems other than cancer and some depression all in all feeling pretty good. Buy the time I finished my second treatment felt very tired more depressed than ever the feeling is hard to put in words, headache ,blood pressure up. First time ever, sick couldn't and did not want to get off the couch, might be described best felt like I was poisoned my entire body was strained and much worse than any flu you could imagine. Spoke to Provenge, no help 0, as well with DR”

Provenge (sipuleucel-T): “Two and a haft weeks ago I completed my third Provenge treatment. It will be two months before I receive a pet scan to set a base line. What I do want to say is I am having strong muscle and joint pain. Has this happen to anyone else? How long should I expect this to go on?”

“Before starting Provenge my PSA was at 4.85 after the three Provenge infusions my PSA elevated and was at 40.3. There was no significant side effects, maybe slight fatigue, but the final results were not satisfactory at all.”

Provenge (sipuleucel-T): “I FELT better after receiving the course. I definitely am glad I had it as I am still feeling well with PSA in the teens and a lumbar metastasis. If it adds months to my life, this is when I want it.”
