Experiences with the Femera brand of Letrozole

I have been prescribed the Femera brand of Letrozole for 5-10 years and was wondering if anyone is doing well on this brand? I’ve read a lot of not so positive experiences with Letrozole and would love to hear something positive! There seems to be a variation on reactions to it & the different brands taken seems to be a big part of this.

I’m starting it on Friday, I’m 68 so also wondering if being being post menopausal gives different reactions to it? 

Thanks, Aileana

I’m not on Femara but I do know that Femara is not routinely prescribed due to its price, the NHS indicative price of Femara is £90 per box as it is the original letrozole, all other brands are the generics. I was given my first box of letrozole, Manx brand, by the hospital pharmacy. My surgery has its own pharmacy and I informed the pharmacist that I had Manx however they have been supplying me with Accord brand which has a NHS indicative price of £3.48 per box!
