I think there is one more to try and I have to decide whether to just not take them. My mobility is so severe that I basically can do nothing, not even housework most days. I take Norco and advil, but that doesn't always help at all.
Is anybody on Aromasin? I am on Arimidex for over 3 years. I have severe joint pains and arthritis pains. My oncologist suggested he would change my med to Aromasin if I wanted. I don't know much about Aromasin. I need some info. Is Aromasin steroidal? That is one of the concerns. How about side effects? I will decide next time I see my doctor in 4 months. I still have time to think about it. I haven't found very reliable info so far. I know we all react differently.

My oncologist had told me that after I was post menopausal for two years, he would recommend switching to an Aromatase inhibitor (think I have that name right?!?). Anyhow, I am wondering how will we know if I am truly post menopause or just missing my period due to being on Tamoxifen. Also, are there side effects with the inhibitor? If so, what are they? I have had very minimal side effects with Tamoxifen and… read more
I have been in Arimidex since November. Just recently I have started with joint pain. I feel like I've been run over by a bus.
What do you do to relieve the pain?
Does anyone have experience with this drug. Letrozole raised my BP and cholesterol gaining weight, sad , and bone pain .
All I seem to read on here is how terrible they all are - anyone having a good experience on them??
