 2  CalR ET hair thinning, around year 10 several squamous cell skin cancers which prompted me to go off this medication as they were not subsiding. I never really experienced fatigue, I am very active and eat a very healthy diet. I work 10 hours days still so I have been lucky in that area but not the skin cancer area. So now I am back on anagrelide and hoping some of those side effects lessen At first it was fine and my platelets lowered to around 600, but over time had to increase the dose to keep up with the platelets increasing. Be very careful and be very sure you are seeing the best hematologist in your area. I travel to Boston/Dana Farber for mine. I have had previous doctors that wanted to do this test and that test, I finally said no and left their practice. I know I am in good hands now. F 61 13 years
