I've only used it since December 12, 2010. The tumor has decreased in size. No side affects. This beats a mastectomy.

Taking this medicine, I had the worst experiences! I was tired, then I ended up in the emergency room with chest pain. It showed up as acid reflux. As time went on my elbows ached and I felt awful. This medication is disgusting and it took away four good months of my life. Thank God, my Dr. allowed me to go back on Tamoxifin.

Comment:
I know this is just the generic form of Arimidex but this is the second time since being diagnosed and treated in 'o6 that I'm taking it and noticing aches in joints and bottoms of my feet. I haven't had any of that with Arimidex. I'm willing to absorb any cost to go back to the Arimidex.
