Finishing Anastrazole

Thanks for reading. I am due to finish anastrazole soon after 5 years of taking. Obviously mixed feelings but trying to feel positive.

Has anybody found a benefit to withdrawing gradually, for example alternate days for a couple of months or is it best to stop completely?

How long does it take for side effects to go?

Are there likely to be any withdrawal symptoms?

Best wishes to all, whatever stage of this “journey” you are on
