I have been taking Arimidex for about 10 months. Because of the side effects my oncologist suggested I try Femara. Before I do that I'd like to hear from anyone who has switched. I know we all react differently but I'd like to know if anyone has had less discomfort with Femara or if it's just more of the same (but different, if you know what I mean). I think I have a pretty high tolerence for pain but some days it gets the better of me. Any help/thoughts/insights are appreciated. Thanks. Paula
