I am fascinated to read all your expereinces with Palpociclib. I have been taking it with anastrozol for about 12 cycles. I do expereince low neutrafles at times and have to extrnd the rst time between doeses at times. This is very up and down, now been reduced to 100mg daily as consistant ly low neutiafiles, .8 and lower at times.

Hi I am new to posting and have a question I hope some one can help me with. I have Secondary Breast Cancer and have been taking Anastozol for the past 2.5 years. I have the usual but nasty joint pain which some days renders me unable to go far, other days I am more mobile. it is unpredicatble but hey I can live with that. My concern is tha since taking Anastozole I have now got Arthritis in my right hip and shoulder which cause me significant pain. Both these areas of arthritis have become evident since taking Anastrozol and impact on my daily movement due to pain and limiting movement. My question is is this a side effect of the anastozol, if so is ther another Aromatase Inhibitor I could take which does not have the same effects? I know the arthritis will not go away, it is here to stay, but my concern it will appear in other joints an restrict my movements more. I love going out and walking etc when I am able to and dont want this to stop. I am waiting to talk to my Oncologist about this, but was wandering if anyone else has had a smilar expereince, and if so did what did they find helped?
