It has been observed that breast cancer patients taking chemo & Neulasta suffer from bone pain. This is induced by Neulasta (pegfilgrastim) and the pain generally peaks around 3 days after the injection.
Naproxen (500mg, twice daily) has been successful in reducing the severity of the bone pain. Generally taken on 2,3,5 days of the chemotherapy cycle, this helps to improve the quality of life and reduce the suffering.
Please consult your doctor before taking any medicine.
