I started Ibrance and falsodex this week and am experiencing itchiness and a mild rash. I'm now taking Claritin so that helps. Anyone else experiencing this side effect?

| Less than one
Ectreme nausea fatigue joint and bone pain loss of thirty pounds. Worse than any chemo I have ever had. I've had everything.

Did I mention I have no appetite


Represented like most unmonitored therapies as innocuous and simply not followed by drs

Iv therapies are supported this and pill therapies are not.

Have had Left Hip pain over the past 2 years with it getting more prominent over the past few months. I thought it was due to a hip replacement that has gone bad but was assured it was not by my orthopedist.

Cough from Faslodex
| D Adams
Some months the cough begins the same day but a few hours later, sometimes it waits a few days and is persistent, all consuming and cannot get past it for days. I used Oregon grape extract and helped. Last injection the cough began while the needle was still in hip (2nd injection) and was drastic for awhile, then stopped a few hours then the phlegm was constant and I could not get a real breath without coughing. Went on for hours along with absolutely freezing to death, fever, weakness and exhaustion. Then it mostly passed, except two days later I am still really tired, not myself and cranky as hell.
