Stage 3B NSCLC and chemo

Hey all...my mother in law has Stage 3B (DX May 2011). We are now on our 2nd line treatment and Pemetrexed (Alimta sp?) is apparently the route the Oncologist is steering us. I've read so many posts about duo chemos and haven't heard too much about this drug (using it alone or in combo with something else). Mostly I've only heard of the side effects and such...which if you ask me.. ALL chemo side effects SUCK!! Anyone have any thoughts or experiences with it?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
