Hi Tessfair1, well, just about, but again, delicate subject, I am experiencing loose stools almost daily. I'm 74, and I've been taking Arimidex for a year. Someone in an earlier post summed up my feelings perfectly when she said Arimidex has made her feel 30 years older. Fatique, hair loss, insomnia, joint pain. HOWEVER, from my online investigation, all of the Estrogen blockers have side effects, and I'm weighing the alternative of a recurrence!

Yes I do, every time! Not only that but I’ve lost control of my bowels on several occasions. So horrifying🥴

I have been having stomach problems while on Anastrozole with a few "blowouts" every morning after coffee and breakfast and loose stools in the afternoon. Trying to figure out how to help out with this. Anyone have any ideas?

I had many bouts a day of diarrhea while on Anastrozole. Took a 3 week break and pretty well back to normal. Onc switched me to Exemestane. I will start that this evening.
