Nanaof7,

I'll tell you the same thing I said elsewhere :
Loss of appetite and nausea are two of the less common side effects of Tarceva, and WBR will make things taste weird, too. The food-sticking-in-the-chest feeling is the worst; it's painful and brings on severe nausea. Staying hydrated is important, you need to drink as much as you can during and between meals.
