    I had a low grade carcinoma and lumpectomy with two lymph nodes removed both of which were clear as well as the surrounding tissue of the small tumor. I have been taking the generic form of Arimidex, Anastrozole, for 20 days and have decided to discontinue the use. I never experience side effects to medications I have taken in the past so I deliberately did not read the insert of side effects so ... Show Full Comment
