Was diagnosed with marginal zone lymphoma and I was treated with Rituximab with minimal response. Doctor adviced me to take Ibrutinib.
@myla031, I'm tagging fellow members who have experience with ibrutinib, sold under the brand name Imbruvica, like @gg17 @northbay @bullwinkle @profrich @ckeys @gmack and @lel who may be able to share their experiences. You may also be interested in this discussion:

Myla, when will you start the new treatment?

My oncologist is trying to put me on their trial of the Acalabrutinib but if don't qualify she'll start me with Ibrutinib. So, I'm still waiting. But I read that Ibrutinib have lots of side effect . So I don't know what to do.
