I take Venclexta once a month for five days and I do have side affects on day 4 and 5 and takes about 3 days after to get back to normal.
My side affects are mainly depression and a weird uncomfortable feeling in my head, hard to explain. I have two more chemo session and I’m done.
I will be getting a stem cell transplant sometime in September, October time frame for AML.
I get 2 shots a day for 5 days Azacitidine 65 mg thats 2 shots a day in my stomach and take 2 pills a day of Venclexia for 7 days, every 5 weeks so far no side effects.
I hope this helps you

I was in remission for 15 months Then it came back I am in remission again now for 4months In order to keep me in remission every 5 week I get 5 days of Azacitidine/Vidaza that is 10 shots in my stomach. 2 a day for 5 days and also take 2 chemo pills Venclexta for 7 days This is to keep me in remission,.
I can't get stem cells because of my age a very young 77

Thank you for your information,
I'm receiving treatment from Scripps Cancer Center in Hillcrest , San Diego .
For the past 2 months I have been undergoing Chemotherapy treatments using Dacogen for AML .
I'm also taking 400 mg of Venclexta every day . I haven't experienced any side effects and my blood counts are beginning to improve . Of course some of this could be due to 2 blood transfusions .
Again , no side effects ( noticable side effects ) .
Hope this helps .
