I'm 60, was diagnosed with PV 5 years ago and have been on hydroxicarbamide ever since.
To date the dose is 500mg x 2 days per week and 1000mg x 5 days per week, with fairly regular venesections.
I've always - touch wood - got on really well with this drug, but recently have started to feel at best slightly queasy all the time and at worst, totally nauseous - vomited even at the weekend. Been like this for almost 4 weeks now.
Can anyone shed any light? Or experienced similar after a few years?
It's pretty wearing.
Thanks a lot.
