Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole

I am on Aromasin. I have tried Tamixifen and Arimidex and could not handle the memory loss with them. I have joint ache with aromasin and have gained 30 lbs. But I found out that working out 5 days a week for 20 minutes has really helped with the joint ache and I also lost some weight. I had a double mastectomy and I am half way thru my 5 years. Oh and I average 32 hot flashes a day 😔. But I feel the side affects are way better than cancer recurrence 😊@mollymiller

@guntherbear You are one of the few here who have mentioned memory loss. I have been on anastrozole for 3 months and have noticed memory loss and ‘brain fog’ also. It’s very frustrating but I’d also rather have that than cancer.
