I was taken off of Arimidex to monitor my blood pressure, which has never been high but went up while on Arimidex. During this time, my pain level subsided significantly. While the raise in blood pressure turned out to be a non-issue relatively speaking, the oncologist offered to make the switch. I guess my fear is that I will experience more of the same or worse with femara (letrozole). Am hoping that those who have made the switch will report fewer side effects. I worry about switching around too much.
