I have been on Imbruvica for 7 years and the only things I have noticed is my hair got thinner and my nails & eyelashes do not grow. But recently I have been breaking out on my face which I do not know if it is from the meds or my cll.

Well , I read it takes about 4 mo till your body adjust to it but it's the afibs I hate, having one now, took my blood thinner and heart rythum pill, hope it goes away soon, side affects are not good, well I wish you the best everyone is different I took gazyva before took 5 months of IV chemo then my count got down. I was in remission for 7 or 8 months.
