I've been on Aromasin for about 5 months. At first I had no problems. Now my joints are so sore, especially my knees. Have no strength in them. I want to discontinue, I can't tolerate it anymore.

I have been on Aromasin for three years, after having started on Arimidex. Aromasin has been so much easier for me.

After 2 1/2 years on Tamoxifen, I have been on Aromasin for 3 years with plans to stay on a full five. I have a definite weight gain but after the misery of hot flashes, etc. with Tamoxifen, this is great.

Comment:
Has it worked? Yes, no recurrance; is it easy to use? Yes, one little pill a day; overall satisfaction? dissapointing. I am at the end of the 5 yr therapy, and have endured pain and fatigue the entire time. The past 6 months have revealed now that I have some severe short-term memory loss (to the point of forgetting that my daughter-in-law was pregnant!), confusion, and I've been wondering if ...
