It's been awhile since I've been here on the boards - I was wondering if any of you have been switched from Arimidex to Aromasin. Any side effects? What's the benefit? I have oestoarthritis so taking Arimidex was not fun - seemed to make the arthritis feel worse. I talked to my Dr about it and I had a bone scan done to rule out any mets - thank goodness that came back OK. The Dr has however decided to switch my medication to Aromasin and from what I can tell it's not any better for those of us with joint pain anyway. The side effects seem more serious also? I've been on Tamoxifin - my first year after chemo - then switched to Arimidex because of really being post-menopause.
I'd love any advice or hear anything any of you have experienced - good or not so good.
Thanks so much!
