Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole
What did you change to?
Jump to this post
It made my joints hurt so bad and the hot flashes (which will go with all of the estrogen blockers) that I finally changed to letrozole. The hot flashes are horrible, but taking 800 mg of magnesium has helped. I do have what they call trigger finger with the letrozole which is a normal side effect. The meds seem to make your body feel like a flu system at times. I’d go off of it if I weren’t so afraid of getting the cancer back.
