ET and Hydroxycarbamide side effects


Hi. Has anyone ever developed a dry and wheezy cough with the treatment? I’ve had this on and off since April but not sure if it’s some weird rare side effect. In other news, my mouth ulcers have gone - yay!

Great news that your mouth ulcers have gone away, as for the dry and wheezy cough perhaps that is something to talk to someone in your medical team, like your GP or CNS (Clinical Nurse Specialist), it seems to have gone on for rather a long while. If you need to talk to someone
