I have finished Chemo and now I have started taking Anastrozole 1 mg I was just wondering if anyone had side effects with this drug and what kind? If so did you continue taking these meds?
I have been on Anastrozole for 15months. I had quite a lot of pain and stiffness in my joints and legs. My Oncologist said that it was a side effect of the drug, and to exercise regularly. I walk for one and a half miles every evening, except when it's raining. I've been doing it for nearly six months and I am now pain free.
Lots of side effects - I've been on it for 6 months. Some of the side effects (joint pain, night sweats, night awakeness) eased up after about three months. I still have occasional aches but it is much better. I am determined to stick it out for the 5 years to receive the benefit of reduced occurrence.
Only on it for 3 wks so far. Side effects have been minimal--a little achy and tired, but honestly that could be from a lot of things right now. Hoping it continues to work out. It can push up bad cholesterol and triglycerides--an issue for me.
I was taking for 2 months. Kept feeling achey. Hard to tell old age vs medication. I finally mentioned to onc that I felt like I had the flu so we switched to femera. Will see if that changes anything. It's in the same family of meds probably won't make a difference.
