Are you taking Sutent?
Comments from related studies:
From this study (12 months ago):
Can you please advise if increasing the intake of Ramipril from 15 to 20 mg daily will have a negative interaction with 50 mg of Sutent? At the moment I am on 15 mg of Ramipril during the periods when I use Sutent and it lowers the BP somehow, but not enough to put me in the safe range. My Sutent treatment schedule is 2 weeks on 50 mg daily followed by 1 week of no Sutent, etc. during the 1 week of no Sutent my BP lowers to normal levels with less or no Ramipril. What could be the side effects? Thank you.
From this study (1 year ago):
Pain comes and goes in very sharp stabs in the top right of back behind shoulder blade. Is this normal or should we worry about another cause.
From this study (2 years ago):
Sutent made me feel terrible while on the 50mg. On the 25 I felt much better. I my tumors did shrink while on the drug, but came right back after I went off. Sutent is very, very hard to live with.
