Hello everyone

I haven’t posted for a while, but I have been on Letrozole for 5 years now following mastectomy, chemo and radiotherapy in 2017/2018. 

I have been told that I need to take Letrozole for another 5 years as I am medium risk of the cancer returning. Some of the worse side effects that I experienced early on have reduced but I still get severe hot flushes and the other menopausal symptoms. I have now been offered the above drug as a way to control them. Has anyone else used this drug to control hot flushes. I’m 56. Many thanks

Hi Alice

sorry to hear you are also suffering from hot flushes. I have tried this drug mainly for night sweating and it works to some degree , but gives me serious heart palpitations(i do not have any issues with my heart usually. for that reason , i was not able to continue.
