I don’t take the same combo but I’m on Letrozole with ribociclib. There’s no watering eyes but more dry mouth, skin and eyes. I think it’s the ribociclib but could be wrong.

Hi, I've been prescribed preservative free eye gel on the advice of my optometrist . Not cheap, but my GP ok'd it. Extremely soothing as a gel. The preservatives in the drops were building up a film which was exacerbating the problem. Jobs a good'un , as my ma would say! X

That's great news, Hannah, long may it continue! I've been on Ibrance for 30 cycles, along with another drug on a trial, had lots of CT scans, still stable 😀

Yes, me too....and it makes your nose run! I think it's Ibrance, never had it on Letrozole alone. I'm expecting a surge in Kleenex sales, funded by me! x

My eyes have been watering terribly for a couple of months. I hadn't linked it to letrazol and Ibrance. Been on them since January.

Re: Eyes watering constantly on Ibrance and letrozole
