Taf/Mek: too many side effects
It is my mom’s third week on the combo,
She has been suffering fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and coughing, eye redness and fatigue
I know each of these symptoms alone is trivial, but altogether are really giving her hard time, and she does not seem to be enjoying her daily life.
I wonder how many side effects are too many, and when it is right to take a medicine holiday?
Also, does any body have a similar experience? Does it get better with time?
