I would be interested to hear from anyone taking 200 mg Verzenio as mono therapy. How has that been for you? Side effects? How are you feeling?

I started with 200 mg in July, but after 2 weeks was dropped to 150 because of neutropenia. I remember having an infection and being very tired (lots of diarrhea) on the higher dose. My tumor markers have been dropping, and blood work has been good, so my oncologist "promoted" me back to 200 mg last week. I've had a UTI this week, and just feel weak and crummy. PET scan next Wednesday. Just hoping to get some energy back.
