Those are the same two drugs I took. What I can tell you is that I was started at 100% strength I lost all my hair after the 2nd treatment. I struggled with nausea and they just gave me very effective drugs for that I didn't eat but I didn't really lose much weight. Pain was an issue so my levels were reduced. I didn't feel anybetter but I didn't get worse. As far as this decease goes I considered it worked.I did not get another recurrence for 3 yrs used a couple different drugs (when I asked why not the same dr.s said they thought! it doesn't work as well the second time) anyway didn't matter half way thru it was clear it was not working so we discontinued. We expected some explosion of growth and a dire outcome but instead it stop growing.
