I’ve heard some really negative side effects from Letrozole (Femara), but don’t know if women do better on Anastrozole (Arimidex) or if the side effects of both are yucky? Anyone tried both or had severe reactions to one or the other?
I made it 6 months on Arimidex with severe joint pain. Switched to Femara, and am finishing up my 7th year. Still some knee problems, but much better. However, everyone responds differently. Just keep trying til you find one that works for you. PS. Daily exercise and losing 20 lbs helped also!
I went off Letrozole because of the side effects. Too many. On Exemestane and having no side effects . Good luck and prayers. Also every one of these act different on everybody.
They all have different side effects on everybody. I like Exemestane for side effects. For me it is good. Let me know how you make out with the Oncologist.
