I have rcc + lung mets. The reported side effects from votrient (pazopanib) look daunting, yet my dr. Will not okay sick leave. Is this common practice?

In brief: It's usually ok

Quite a few people are able to continue to work while on votrient (pazopanib).
It's worth seeing how you respond to treatment before deciding whether you need to take off from work. If you have a lot of side effects related to the drugs, it's worth discussing whether you would benefit from dose reduction.

In brief: SICK LEAVE

Everyone responds differently to treatments and he is hopefully going to give you a chance to do well with it and be able to work.
Positive outlook and expectations are very important.
