Sun, Jan 12 5:51pm · Aromatase Inhihibitors: Did you decide to go on them or not? in Breast Cancer

I'm following this thread. I took Arimidex for a year and a half and had sever side effects I switched to Exemestane and also had side effects. I'm now taking Tamoxifen and these have their own set! I'm seriously thinking of going back to Exemestane. Not sure yet. I'm waiting for some lab test results.

Dec 13, 2019 · Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole in Breast Cancer

Hi Trixie, I've posted several times about my bad experience with Anastrozole. I then went on Exemestane and had some negative side effects. Currently I'm taking a break from all the AIs and am scheduled to start Tamoxifen in January. I'm 75 and I'm very worried about blood clots with that drug, though. Does anyone have experience with Tamoxifen or have any credible information about the possible side effects?

Nov 19, 2019 · Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole in Breast Cancer

I was on Arimidex for over a year and a half, and finally the side effects became intolerable for me. I understand this is not true for everyone. After 9 weeks off the Arimidex, my Oncologist switched me to Exemestane . After 2 weeks, the side effects of the Exemestane became similar to the Arimidex. Again I'm taking a month's break and have an appointment with my Oncologist in December. I'm 75 and trying to decide if I want to stop the drugs altogether or try Tamoxifen. I have osteopenia and moderate to severe arthritis in multiple places. I'm hoping my Oncologist can help me with my decision.

Hi Trixie, I know you are taking Exemestane, I meant when you said, "The only way you'll know is to try it", did you mean that i should try Tamoxifen? Sorry for the confusion.

Thank you for your reply, Trixie. Do you mean try Tamoxifen? Even my Oncologist said Letrozole is similar to Arimidex. I do take a large dose of vitamin D daily and I have for years. I'm really glad to know you are doing well with Exemestane.
