Xeloda – Day 4

Well I’m glad to say I don’t have much to report when it comes to Xeloda side effects. The odd time I have a gurgle in my stomach but really that is all. I’m careful to eat small non-dairy meals and so far so good.

My biggest challenge has been to eat as soon as I wake so that I can take my chemo pills shortly afterwards. Prior to this week I’d probably have my first bit of food around 10:00 in the morning and even that might just be a fruit or a bit of yogurt. The pharmacist said I should take Xeloda within 30 minutes after a meal … and a fruit just doesn’t cut it as a meal.

Hi Daria,
I'm glad that you're currently getting to experience for yourself just how good "boring" is for cancer patients!
May your life continue to be as uneventful...

The scheduling of medication is a real problem in real life situations.

Still, considering the alternative, Xeloda seems to be working well for you.

When I saw fruit, I remembered something really important.

you CANNOT have grapefruit or grapefruit juice.
