I am a 45 year old female who has been diagnosed with recurrent Stage 3 sarcoma and stage 4 NSCLC. I am now being treated with my third "chemo cocktail" of Alimta. My first treatment was Gemzar, Taxoter and Neulasta. After a severe reaction to the Gemzar my chemo was changed to Carboplatin, Taxoter an Neulasta. After 4 treatments with the Carboplatin/Taxoter my treatment has been changed to ALIMTA. I am 7 days into my first treatment of 4. My oncologist says it is well tolerated by most patients.
