Eggs and Verzenio -- bad interactions common?

Have there been many cases of people having issues with eating eggs while on Verzenio? My stomach issues flare up around 3 hrs after eating breakfast/taking the morning dose but never have after the evening dose. The only common thing I have every day for breakfast is an egg in some form.

I’ve not noticed any particular foods affect my gut but if I’m having cramps and loose stools it occurs in the morning. I have porridge with blueberries everyday. I hope your problems improve with time.

Hi tnmom

Thanks for posting. It’s understandable you’re wondering if people have issues eating eggs while on Abemaciclib (Verzenio).

Side effects of Verzenio include stomach problems such as tummy pain, diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting. However, we are not aware of this being related to eggs and there is no reference to eggs in the drug manufacturers information.

If you haven’t done so, you could maybe not have an egg at breakfast for a few days and see if the stomach issues you are having improve. If they continue you can mention it to your treatment team.
