The standard approved dosage regimen for Xgeva is having an injection every 4 weeks. My Oncologist has been concerned about potential toxic side effects of this drug, such as necrosis of the jaw. As such, he has been treating me less frequently at 6 week intervals. I have been on this drug for several months, as I have metastasis to the pelvic bone.
Is anyone else taking Xgeva on a other than a 4 week treatment cycle?
Has anyone experienced side effects from Xgeva, and was it significant enough that you had to stop taking it?
