I expect you’ve had a look at the pack information, which doesn’t mention this is a common side effect. Therefore, if you have a breast cancer nurse allocated to you, talk to her. If you live in the UK, ring one of the breast cancer charities such as MacMillan.

Otherwise, talk to your pharmacist or failing all else your oncologist or doctor. There are two other similar medicines that you could take instead.
