Hello Everyone!
My mom has finished chemo and they had her on Arimidex for about 5 months now. She has had permanent general body pain and aching so our doctor changed it now to Femara. I have done some reading online about all of these medications but they all seem the same....Does anyone know about Femara, or has anyone experienced the pain after chemo or during arimidex? Or has anyone ever had to switch medications ?
Thank you all so much,

    You can go to webMD and get info on almost any drug you want. I'm on aromasin, same class but somewhat different, and fortunately don't have any joint pain, except left knee and I think that's just arthritis. Hope this helps. God bless. hummb
