Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole

I’ve been on anastrozole for 5 months and so far my only major symptom has been insomnia. I am up to an average of 5 hours sleep a night at this point. I am also having chronic mild headaches but not sure if that is related to my chronic migraines or the anestrozole. I will see my neurologist in Sept and discuss with him. I did lose some of my hair after my first surgery (8 hours) but that has pretty much stopped now. I had IDC, Mucinous type, 2 tumors, Stage 1 and Stage 2. I elected for bilateral mastectomy with natural reconstruction using my own fatty tissue. I am the most blessed woman as I did not need Chemo or radiation but anestrozole is wreaking havoc with my emotions and depression. Good luck and blessings to you.

❤️ your comments about wreaking havoc with your emotions! This has been my story as well! I am hopeful the anxiety issues will stop once I’m off Anastrozole….awaiting Oncology appointment next week to discuss. I have been on drug for 5 years (but who’s counting?)
