It works on my father

My father diagnosed with Stage 4 Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer 8 months ago - in February 2018 - and following tests was put on the generic Iressa. We can only say that he feel fantastic with only minimal side effects: occasional mild rash on chest (1-2 days only) and a bit tired afternoons - He have a nap for an hour and then all is good. Thanks a Lot, very nice online generic pharmacy

    Miracle pill

    My sister was diagnosed with nsclc adenocarcinoma, egfr+, stage iv, inoperable, non extrathoracic involvment. Metastasis was initially found in ipsilateral supraclavicular lymph gland which was surgically removed. Chemotherapy for three months with alimta and cisplatin with good results (1/3 of initial tumor disappeared) but then became static. Then change of therapy for a second line chemotherapy but after a month tumor was static. Then finally, came to Indian generic IRESSA. She is being taking the wonder pill for just three months and scan proved the tumor is impressively shrunk!! There are no side effects other that dry face skin. We are so grateful for this miracle pill.
