    I was given Tamoxifen and then Arimidex and now Aromasin. I was diagnosed 3 years ago and have been on and off these medicines because of the side effects. They have all been terrible. WHat good is living if you can't enjoy life because of the side effects of these medicines. With Aromasin, it first appeared as if it was going to be okay. However, after a few months all the side effects starte ... Show Full Comment

    In discussing whether this medication has worked, I do not know as it has only been a few months. How will I ever know anyway?! One thing I do know is that I gained 8.4 pounds in the first two weeks of taking it even though cutting down on food after the first couple pounds were put on. The study shows how many people gain more than 10% of their body weight, but talks nothing about weight gain les ... Show Full Comment

    I took Arimidex for 3 months and finally changed to Aromasin . This is my second year of Aromasin and the side effects I find most intolerable are the lack of energy and depression. I stopped the drug for the month of August and regained my energy level and mood elevation. In the middle of December , I stopped it again. I've now restarted it and take it daily. Needless to say my oncologist is ... Show Full Comment

    I am also taking Aromasin for post breast cancer care. Like a lot of others, the side effects have included joint pain. For someone who plays piano and golf, the pain in my hands was miserable. However, I started taking kelp to help offset some of these symptoms, and it has helped immensely. In fact, any residual pain can be relieved with Advil. Hope this tidbit helps someone.
