Is Erivedge classified as chemotherapy? If I lose my hair will it be permanent, even if I stop the medication?

Hello, Sheilah! How are you?

Yes, it is classified as a cancer medication that is used to treat basal cell carcinoma that has spread to other parts of the body.

And yes, side effects generally reverse, once the course of treatment is completed.

Other possible side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, weight loss, joint pain and diarrhea.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Drink a lot of water to help with leg cramps. It has worked for me. I originally took Erivedge for 10 months and lost all my hair within 4 months. 2 years after quitting I have yet to grow my hair back.
