Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional. Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturer depending on the country of origin. Images are provided as a reference only, the received medicine may vary in packaging, color, pill shape, etc, from one batch to the next. For an item marked "generic" any quality brand may be sent, however you will always receive the active ingredients ordered in the strength(s) ordered.
Alimta (pemetrexed) is a chemotherapy agent used to extend the life expectancy of patients who have non-squamous, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) or malignant mesothelioma. It is usually used with or following treatment with a platinum-based chemotherapy treatment, such as cisplatin or carboplatin.
Depending on location patients may buy Alimta by another name, usually Pleumet, Pemecad, or Adpem.
Patients who intend to buy Alimta should be aware that this product is a fluid for IV infusion. It should be stored at 25 degrees Celsius or 77 degrees Fahrenheit. Dispose of materials which have come into contact with Alimta properly.
What to Expect from Alimta
Cancer and its treatment is a very complicated topic. We will try to summarize basic information here, but treatment should not be attempted without doctor involvement and doctor instructions should always be followed.
The majority of patients buy Alimta to treat non-squamous NSCLC. The medication is used in one of three scenarios:
Less commonly patients buy Alimta to treat malignant mesothelioma. There is typically only one scenario in which the medication is used:
In nearly all cases treatment is similar; the medication is given on the first day of a 21-day cycle, administered intravenously over 10 minutes. If cisplatin is also being administered, Alimta will be administered first.
The medication is usually administered for six cycles or until the disease progresses. Dosage can be quite variable and should be determined by a doctor; patient health and response will be taken into consideration.
Sometimes the medication will prove too toxic for an individual, which may call for modified dosage or the end of treatment with Alimta. Most patients, however, find the medication helps fight cancer, and it can extend life considerably.
Supplements can help alleviate side effects from Alimta:
Other medications can also help alleviate side effects if they become severe; however, many medications can produce equally unpleasant interactions with Alimta. Always check with a doctor before taking any other medication, including over-the-counter NSAIDs and supplements.
Don't be afraid to contact your doctor with any questions or concerns, no matter how trivial they may seem. Remember that there are other medications and techniques that can help significantly with alleviating side effects from Alimta. Don't be afraid to ask about them or use them.
