I've been taking Arimidex for almost six years with no side effects. We would be changing to Aromasin primarily because it has been the companion drug to Afinitor in drug trials, but also because I was diagnosed metastatic 10 months ago. We can't say definitively that Arimidex failed, but changing from Faslodex to Afinitor seemed like the right time to also change the AI.

Thank you for this post. It’s the first one I’ve seen indicating “no side effects”. Other posts are horribly discouraging. But, you’ve been on it 6 years, and with the return of a metastatic diagnosis 10 mos ago, it doesn’t appear to stop cancer, which it’s supposed to do. What a nightmare.
