Hi All -

I was wondering if anyone experienced bad "reactions " to this medication when it was extremely hot and humid in the summer time? It takes me little effort to feel like I am in the middle of the worst heat flash (flush) and itchy. It has been so bad recently that I had to reach out to my medical oncologist and ask about it. She gave me permission to stop if for the month of August as I am seeing her next month. I have been off if it for at least a week but it is no better.


Any thoughts,
