Sat, Jun 20 6:08pm · Aromatase Inhihibitors: Did you decide to go on them or not? in Breast Cancer

Good luck with the Exemestane, Patty. I had extreme problems with Anastrozole I stayed on it for nearly a year and a half and after trying others, ended up with Tamoxifen. I've been on it since December 2019, and this has been the best for me so far.

@mugs24cancer, I'm so sorry to hear about your reaction to Tamoxifen. I'm now taking it when I couldn't stand the side effects from the other AI drugs, and I"m tolerating it just fine. Have you notified your Oncologist?

Good morning Mary. Thank you for all of your information! After careful consideration, I've just ordered two masks from Etsy last week for my husband and me. They haven't arrived yet. With all of your wonderful information, if they aren't comfortable, I will be able to modify them. Thank you again!

Hello, erdbird,. I had the same problem. I wear Phonak Audéo M hearing aids. Awhile back someone responded to this post suggesting you put your mask on first, then your hearing aids. This really does work beautifully for me. I'm so grateful to the person who posted that idea. I put my glasses on last. It all works!

@elizm thank you for this interesting article! I'd be interested to know the results of the thorough testing of any of the other AIs. too.

I was having pretty severe side effects after a year and a half on Anastrozole, switched to Exemestane, and after a much shorter period and experiencing extreme neck and joint pain. I stopped the Exemestane. I saw my Oncologist and then switched to Tamoxifen. I've been on that since December 2019 and it is a MUCH better choice for me. Best of luck to all of you with whatever AI you choose!
