Default Iressa

You need a doctors Rx. first you mush fail at at least two Chmos. before Iressa one must also be a stage 111 or 1V before you can take Iressa

Default Iressa

If your insurance will not cover it in the US it would cost about $1,700 per month. It can work wonders or not at all.

Dear Aijun, <br><br>My mother was on Iressa for about 4 months. Her condition continued to deteriorate as she completely lost her appetite and was literally starving herself. She was dehydrated and very weak. We made the decision to take her off the drug and her appetite improved within 2 days. She is now eating very well. I would really think twice about using this drug without a lot of research. I wish now we had never put her on it. I wish you the best of luck. <br><br>Sincerely, <br>Second Thoughts<br>
