What to do when Tarceva doesn't work?

When Tarceva stopped working for you – what, if any, other treatment are you taking? 

I have Stage 4 NSCL cancer and have been on tarcvea for 7 months. Today I discovered the Tarceva is no longer as effective and the pleural fluid is beginning to build up again. Oncology has suggested trying Afatinib to see if it might keep the cancer in check. 

Has anyone used Afatinib?

I’m wondering what to do next.
