Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (13 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.
