Verzenio and hair loss.

I’m going to be starting verzenio in a few days and I read that 30% of people who take this medication experience hair loss. I asked the pharmacist about this and he made it sound like I could go completely bald again like I was from chemo. It sounded like he was reading from a script and I’m not sure if he really knew what he was talking about. Is there anyone on verzenio who has not experienced any hair loss? If you have, how much and does it grow back?

    Trv4764 - I lost about ⅔ of my hair when I was on the full dose of Verzenio (150mg x 2). I didn't have balls spots, just overall thinning. After a dose reduction (100mg x 2), my hair started to grow back in. It's still not 100%, but it's better. I haven't heard of of anyone losing all of there hair on Verzenio, just thinning.

    You might want to ask this question in one of the Abemaciclib/Verzenio threads. I think more people will see it there.
