I would be most appreciative, if anyone who is taking or has any insight on pill form chemotherapy could share with me, what if any side effects it has, and how succussful it has been for them. My brother now has to make a decision wheather or not to go on it. Thanks so much for any information you can give me.

You don't say what chemo or what dose?

My husband has brain cancer and is taking an oral chemo drug called Temadar (165mg). Right now while he is in radiation treament he takes it every morning until radiation is done. He will then take this medicine on a 5 on 23 off cycle and a stronger dose. I beleive that the side effects of this are no different than any other chemo drugs.
