Hi everyone. I haven’t been on for awhile but thought I’d give my two cents worth. I’ve been on anastrozol for 2 years now. Don’t want to be a bah humbug but here are some side effects I have. Super hot flashes constantly, headache, trouble sleeping, weight gain, joints that don’t wanna work right and hurt. Oh yeah, dry, snake skin! I’m keeping the lotion companies in business! So….I don’t expect anything to change for the next 3 years but I always remind myself of the alternative! Hang in there! We’ll all get through this!
