Temodar (temozolomide) for Glioblastoma Multiforme "Have taken a reduced dose of Temodar (Temodol in UK) for 12 years on a five week cycle. Side effects bad - nausea, vomiting, fatigue, etc. However, I have MRI scans every 8 weeks and so far no recurrence."

For Glioblastoma Multiforme "have used this drug as maintenance over 100 cycles - 35day cycles. 1/2 normal dose slightly longer interval (28 day usual cycle). Some side effects but recover. Worth the side effects - 10years since surgery and radiotherapy"

Temodar (temozolomide) for Anaplastic Astrocytoma "I was diagnosed with an anaplastic astrocytoma about 18 months ago. I had 6 weeks of radiation, then started on Temodar. I take 300 mg for 5 days every 4 weeks. I have one cycle to go. My last 2 MRIs have been clear. So far I would say this medication is working very well. As long as I take my anti-nausea medication about 30 minutes before the Temodar, I am fine. I take it at night right before I go to bed."

Temodar (temozolomide) "After 18 infusions (every 3 weeks) of Keytruda, my body couldn't handle the side affects anymore, so my Dr put me on Temodar for my metastatic melanoma - it's been over 3 years now, and my Dr said this drug is working for me - minimum side affects, I'm on a 28 day cycle, 5 days of the pill (200mm) and coast the next 23 days. When I take this drug, I also take compazine for nausea."

Temodar (temozolomide) for Melanoma, Metastatic "After surgery (right axillary nodes), radiation of that site, subsequent CT scans and biopsy revealed that it had spread to his right lung. After treatment with this oral chemo (covered by Medicare), he has a complete remission of the lung tumor. Side effects were minimal. He is BRAF positive, although I don't know if that has any connection with the Temodar."
- Taken for 1 to 2 years

For Anaplastic Oligodendroglioma "I had oligodendroglioma for 30 yrs. First surgery, then radiation, next chemo with temozolomide the tumor gone ,but 30 yrs came back. Started again with 340 mg of temozolomide and 3 mths later gone, but I am old so Dr's said best to take it for a 12 mth cycle. We will see if it works can continue for another 12 mths. So we will see ,all in all it works for me , so I hope it gives other hope."
