I went to the pharmacy today to pick up a prescription for Fulvestrant, in preparation for my first injection next week. $659 later, I reviewed the drug information that came along with it. Possible side effects listed include: pain/swelling/redness at the injection site, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation, diarrhea, upset stomach, dizziness, tiredness, weakness, headache, body aches/pains, flushing and sweating (hot flushes/hot flashes), or trouble sleeping. The only one I am hoping for is loss of appetite!
