Any suggestions on how to endure side effect of Sutent?

After two months of trying with 12.5mg dosage (4 weeks on 2 weeks off), Sutent failed. Now we decided to double it to 25mg after consulting 3 oncologists. Besides supplement, I wonder if there is anything I can do to help my 9-year-old son better fight the side effects. He is doing Yoga. I do juicing, smoothies. He takes the pill about 30 minutes after dinner and one hour before going to bed. Any advice is appreciated!

Also at his next bloodwork, besides the standard checkup, what are some of the extra things I need to order for him, like CRP?
