@tammyp @francine6829 – From what I've read so far on this and other sites, pretty much all the AI drugs have some potent side effects I've been on Arimidex for 14 months. I've preciously listed my side effects here and I think I just have to stick with it for the 5 years. I don't like to take Ibuprofen much, but I do when the pains get intolerable.
I'm not sure. My Oncologist stated it may be how a particular AI is compounded, that causes the side effects. I've got to look at my Genetic Pharmacology Report to help me determine how to proceed.
