I started taking aromasin in June 2008 for stage one breast cancer in the second breast. For the first 4 months the side effects were minimal. However I am now in the 10th month and have joint pain, weak wrist, depression, lethargic, no energy not even to do my exercise that I have always enjoyed. The biggest problem for me though is my blood pressure has gone up and I can't seem to get it ... Show Full Comment

I started on Arimidex and couldn't tolerate the extreme joint pain, daily diarrhea, headaches, loss of smell and taste and constant fatigue. Doc changed me to Aromasin, which seemed more tolerable, but after six weeks I had joint pain, fatigue, weight gain and then exploded in a horrible lumpy, itchy rash of a drug reaction. It will take three weeks to flush that out of my system and I don&# ... Show Full Comment

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!!!
