I am extremely lucky to be in an area it is approved and used in. Have been on it since October 2013 and numbers are still falling. Long may it last. It does have side effects, mine are aches in the area of the tumour from time to time especially if I am tired and a runny nose and aches and pains but nothing that cant be resolved by paracetamol. My bp is normal although I had been on medication prior to starting treatment In all I have to say am pleased its doing what it says on the tin
