After 28 days of treatment, my PSA went from 8.0 to 0.3. The side effects are different for different people but my major gripe has been significant nausea with a headache to go with it. The antidote prescribed for nausea was ineffective and I am trying various inexpensive OTC remedies with ginger
cookies. Will let you know what works for me.
I have a call in to my oncologist to see what OTC ingredients may be chemically active with TAK-700 and therefore verboten.
For those of you unfamiliar with my treatment profile, I have had EBRT, ADT2 (Lupron w/Casodex), Intermittent Lupron, Casodex alone, surgical prostate removal, and a bilateral orchiectomy. The clinical trial that I am receiving treatment with TAK-700 is for patients with (CRPC) Nonmetastatic Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer and a rising PSA.
