I am taking anastrozole and the first 2 yrs I had pain in shoulders and then it went to forearms and wrist. I just rode it out and now I’m 4 yrs in and no pain I think some of those hormone blockers r something the body has to get use to. I had some mild arthritis before I started taking it. I have always taken omega 3, 2000 mg a day that keeps me from having arthritis pain. If I go off of it for more then 2 days I start getting that stiffness and pain back. Some of y’all might like to try that. Hope y’all feel better
I have arthritis & have been taking Anastrazole for 3 years. It did make my arthritis worse. However, I have managed it with an arthritis med & I walk alot. Both things seem to lower my pain & increase my tolerance to deal with the side effects of anastrazole.
I also switched from Anasterzole to Leterzole. Leterzole way better for me and pain tolerable.
Hi. I was on anastrozole and now I’m on letrozole, but I can speak to your question. It definitely made the arthritis worse. I have it in my spine and I noticed that my back pain increased pretty dramatically once I started on the anastrozole. After about six months on the anastrozole I switched to letrozole and the pain is quite a bit less. I hope you get some relief.
