My son has been on 300mgs 5/23 of temodar for 3 months now. His side effects have been luckily very limited but one of them he says his tongue feels like its burnt all the time(or for atleast 3 weeks, then it gets better, then its time for another dose and it starts over). its affecting everything he eats and drinks. has to eat very slow and everything he drinks, even water hurts. has anybody dealt with this and what helped? Thanks in advance

Matt,

As always I will speak with my own experience. If my memory is correct, I was on temodar 460mg 5/23 for 2 years. The side effects for me were for the most case mild. One of the things it caused was the taste of food to change. Some foods more then others. The one thing I knew was I needed to get food down in order for my body to deal with the big C. It resulted in me blending some "smoothies" to insure I was getting some of the things my body needed. This was a once day thing for me. As your son has mentioned it would take about 3 weeks for everythign to get back to "normal" then all over again. I HOPE this helps some....

HOPE
