Venclexta (venetoclax) for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia "Venclexta has worked wonderfully for me. When my Ibrutinib stopped working, and my counts began to increase, I was moved to Venclexta with a 6 month infusion cycle of Rituximab. I have completed that cycle now, and am back to 3 month followups with the Dr. My counts are absolutely normal, and have been almost since I started taking it."

Venclexta (venetoclax) for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia "I am on cycle 4 of Gazyva and Venclexta. I have experienced zero side effects and feel great. The Venclexta reduced the size of large lymph nodes from day one and they are now non-palpable. I take the medication with my evening meal and can't even taste it. Hoping it continues to work so smoothly."

For Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia "Hi everyone, I have Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia for many years. From 2020, September, I started to take these pills: 2 pills (2x100) = 200 mg every day till now, Sept/20/2023. What you need to know is that this medication has side effects, such as tiredness, joint pain, constipation, etc. Besides that, this one makes me feel very good and enjoy my life as much as I can. When I started to take it, I started with 50mg for a week, then 100mg, 200mg, 300mg, and now 400mg. My doctor, who is a very good Oncologist, has successfully treated me for more than 11 years. This medication is the second one I've tried since 2020, and I'm very happy because my body reacted well to the medicine, in conditions that I did not expect. Thank you to everyone who was and still is around me,"
