I have been on this medication about 6 months and I hate it. My joints ache constantly and I'm having a hard time sleeping. It is also very expensive. My Dr. wants me to get exercise most days and maintain my weight which I am trying to do. I will keep taking it because I don't want to lose my cancer battle but the side effects are very hard.

I have been on Aromasin for 4 years now and some of the symptoms others state they have I have had but not to the point I can not stand it. I am on a BP patch, have had weight gain, on meds for migraines (was before Aromasin), do have leg and muscle cramping but cant point it to Aromasin like everyone else has. I like it if it is what has kept the cancer away!!!

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.

Comment:
I have been on Aromasin for three years, after having started on Arimidex. Aromasin has been so much easier for me. However, lately my blood pressure is all out of wack...up high...down low...severe headaches too! Has anyone noticed a difference in their blood pressure? I'm already on three meds and can't stand the headaches! Not to mention how unsettling it is to have your blood pres ... Show Full Comment
