    Arimidex for Osteoporosis; Breast cancer

    I wanted to stop Bonviva’s monthly intake (film-coated tablet) after almost a year. The muscle pain and stomach discomfort as a side effect have aroused great doubt in me on the drug. My doctor suggested I switch to the syringe to protect my stomach. He said the side effects would stop over time and as long as I take Arimidex I should continue with Bonviva. Muscle and limb pain especially in the night, my toes and finger tips as well as the right hand and the chest operated on 10 years ago hurt me. I find no right place to sleep, and often wake up at night. During the day I feel more legs rising at stairs. In a week I get the 3rd syringe and I wonder if I should stop the drug. The drug Arimidex was discontinued after 8 years a month ago, which has led to no improvement, rather the opposite. I rarely take painkillers, with magnesium tablets I find a slight pain relief.

    Arimidex for Osteoporosis; Breast cancer

    Take Arimidex for exactly 2 years. After the initial common complaints such as muscle weakness and joint pain, which have clearly improved over time, I’m currently in good shape, almost 20 km cycling every day. To my great astonishment, a few days ago, strong muscle pains at the front of my thighs were used as soon as I walked quickly, climbing stairs or driving a car (and pressing the pedals). The pain is not symmetrical, begins in one leg, becomes almost unbearable, then gradually diminishes and begins in the other. I can not explain this fact and now I’m afraid for the upcoming ski season …

    Arimidex for Breast cancer

    Three years ago, had ablation after mamma CA diagnosis, first tamoxifen, for a year Arimidex. In the first weeks the common side effects: hot flashes, muscle aches, muscle cramps, especially WAden muscles. For some weeks I get bruises easily (I have never had), blood count is OK (Leuko 4000, Red 5 million, HB 16, Plt 185,000). After having had micrometastes twice last year, I see no reason to continue taking the tablets as they obviously have no effect but only side effects.

    Arimidex for Metastasis; Breast cancer

    In the first year hardly any complaints, since the side effects of chemo and radiation were still very much in the foreground. Since 2.5 years, osteoporosis, 15 kg weight gain, muscle and joint pain, very dry mucous membranes and water retention in the entire body. I will end the pack yet take and stop 3 months earlier. I think that it will not be so tragic and I can continue to survive. Sincerely, Rosie

    Arimidex for Breast cancer

    For about 2 years, I take Arimidex with the usual consequences such as hot flashes, laxity, mild muscle pain. About 7 months ago, I was also prescribed Atancand, I took 8 mg / day. I got increasingly muscle pain, bone pain, joint pain, which went from the shoulder over the hips to the shins, with increasing tendency. Getting up, climbing stairs etc. became more and more painful. When reducing the dose to 4 mg / daily Immediate improvement, almost every day disappeared. Then I took only every 2 days 4 mg, after 2 weeks no Atacand more. The complaints are – toi, toi, toi – away, the suspected hip osteoarthritis also. Is there a cross effect between the two remedies?
