I am almost done with my first year on femara (one down, four to go), after having switched from tamoxifen. Recently, within the last few months, I have noticed I am putting on weight, although this morning's doctor appointment only shows a 5 pain gain from 6 months ago. I feel tight in my clothes, swollen, and at least 20 pounds heavier than I actually am. My eating habits have not changed/increased, and I remain active. Has anyone else noticed any weight gains due to femara? Is this one of the possible side effects? Thanks for your time, and for any comments/suggestions.
