I am scared to not be on the medicine. When I called my oncologist’s office they told me to not take the medicine till my appointment. I am going to ask my oncologist to change me to another medication. Anyone on exemestine? What side effects have you had? I would appreciate any feedback.

It is not always the medicine causing a reaction, but sometimes the fillers. I switched from anastrazole to letrozole and when I still had a sensitivity, switched to another manufacturer and finally to the brand name, to which I had no reaction. You find an aromatase inhibitor you can take but I encourage you to try different manufacturers- and/or brand name- before giving up. (There is also tamoxifen....)

Yes, I definitely plan on trying another medicine. I think I will ask my oncologist to make the prescription for brand name only.
Thank you both for your replies!
God Bless you both!!
