wasnt sure if there's an oncologist reading these discussions.....i received chemo last year for NHL and i had 'mixed response' - my oncologist swiched meds 3 times (not approved for NHL) but the tumors continued to grow. now i'm on yet another chemo that's not approved for NHL.....is this normal? or should i ask the doc to go back to chemo drug specifically for NHL? any help would be appreciated

We currently do not have an oncologist in this community.

Drugs are used "off label" to treat a variety of conditions but I would get all of the details from your doctor. And don't ever be shy about a 2nd opinion!

Here's a link to the WebMD Drugs and Medication tool that gives information as well as user reviews. You might find others that have been treated with the same meds and compare notes:
