Hi, does anyone have any tips to combat the fatigue from Imbruvica?
I am a 47 year old male with 2 young daughters and a demanding sales job. I do not have time to nap and it does not really help me anyway. Was on W&W for 8 years but due to WBC elevating to 110 and swollen LN and spleen last summer, I started the 3 pill treatment of this drug.
Side effects were minimal and effects were immediate. But about 5 months in I could not shake the fatigue. my ONC said my results were strong so she dropped me down to 2 tabs, which helped immediately with my energy levels. Over the last 3 months though, the fatigue has crept up and gotten slowly worse where all day long, every day i feel like I have a small hangover. My ONC will not lower the medication anymore has my progress is still moving forward but verry slowly (WBC down to 40, no swollen anything). Exercise helps but only during and for about an hour afterward, and its hard for me to find time to exercise everyday.
Anyone have any advice on how they have combatted fatigue on this medication?
