Symptoms after quitting arimidex

Stopped taking arimedex several months ago but some symptoms persist: Fatigue, hair thinning, profuse sweating. When are the effects of Arimidex finally gone?

sandrajo @sandrajo– I'm interested to read the responses to this, too. I'm almost at the end of a trial period of going off Arimidex for two weeks. I was having severe pain in my leg and knee, couldn't sleep,to the point where I had to take pain pills. I have spinal stenosis, but I wanted to see if Arimidax was causing this excruciating flair-up. The pain has lessened this week. I'll be going back on the Arimidex on Sunday. We'll see what happens.

Have you tried taking vitamin D? Check with your oncologist first though. I started with 1000 and she upped me to 2000 and shall be moving toward 5,000 in a few days. This has helped with the pain. I also have stenosis in my neck and severe stenosis in my lower spine. Now, lucky me, I am treating a bout of diverticulitis…yuck!
