I am starting 10th month on IBRANCE & letrozole-my side effects are fatigue, hair loss & joint pain. So far the drugs have stopped new progression of bone Mets. My side effects are tolerable-exercise, good nutrition, prayer & support of family & friends certainly help to counteract & keep me positive & hopeful.
At start, Dr lowered ibrance dosage as he monitored my WBC. With lower dosage, WBC was not as severe.
@junec-good luck to you as you make decisions!

Biotin may help with your thinning hair – I had read about that and take a high dosage and seems to help with mine due to aromatase inhibitor. However, if you do take it, you need to be off of it a few days before labs, such as thyroid, as it can skew results. Thank you for sharing your experience with Ibrance for @djwc.

I'm just so scared all of a sudden,
