Did anyone hear the news from the San Antonio convention - new drugs (aromatase inhibitors) show 17% improvement over tamoxifen for reducing the incidence of recurrence of breast cancer. The new drugs suppress the estrogen without the side effects of tamoxifen - i.e., hot flashes, possibility of uterine cancer, and blood clots. Does anyone take these new drugs now? If so, are there any side effects to report?
