    Help for chemo-induced bone pain

    A friend’s mother is having bone pain from her chemo for stage 2 breast cancer. She’s getting Paclitaxel and Trastuzumab. Does anyone know of an over-the-counter or prescription med that can help her? Thanks!

      If it's an over the counter they want then Motrin is indicated for cancer pain because it reduces swelling in the marrow.
