    Femara for Fatigue; Pain (joint)

    At initial intake dizziness, drowsiness, fatigue, sleep disturbances and the usual hot flashes at night, similar to Arimidex, but not so pronounced. Also, the time until you get used to the drug a little shorter namely about 1 week, then the side effects are lower. In Arimidex, the habituation phase took just under 3 weeks, the side effects were more pronounced. Whether Femara has a value, you can not say yet, but the intake period is too short. Two years ago, I started using tamoxifen, after six months of increasing tumor markers, then Arimidex got better after three months. After another 6 months again massively increasing tumor markers. Now Femara.

    Femara for Pain (acute)

    I have been taking the hormone preparation FEMARA for a year now. The joint and muscle pain increase more and more from day to day. Constant headaches, diarrhea, nausea, hot flashes, then often I start to feel cold. I feel exhausted and broken. was sick for 3 weeks now. My doctor says, but I should take the drug despite all the side effects. Sometimes I think I stop, but then I feel remorse again and I keep on.

    Femara for Breast cancer

    For the first six months, except for dry mucous membranes, hot flushes, and sometimes depressive states, I tolerated letrozole relatively well. Meanwhile, I have discomfort with the bones, in knee and hip joints and feet and especially the stiffness in the back, stooping is hardly possible, bother me. Tiredness and slackness as well as changes in the hair structure have also been added. The best is for cycling, which unfortunately is currently possible bad weather conditions. I am not sure if I can continue to participate in sports (currently are holidays).

    Femara for Breast cancer

    Side effects of tamoxifen: hot flashes nothing else. Effects of Femara: Hot flashes less than tamoxifen. Joint pain, dehydration of the mucous membranes, loss of libido, tachycardia, frequent urination. For 5 years I took Tamoxifen, since autumn 2007 I take Femara. For about 2 months I have muscle pain in the shoulder area and strong muscle pain in the right upper arm. My GP sent me to X-ray and told me to do a scan now. Can someone tell me how long I can and should take Femara and if I can not sell it?
