Side effects of letrozole

I have been taking letrozole for 3 months now. Getting a few hot sweats but I can cope with them. Stiff joints in my hands but doesn’t stop me doing things. Someone has recommended I take Omega 3 to help with the joint pain so will check if these are ok to take. Staying positive helps I think and I am not going to let this beat me.

Hi Elihu welcome


it’s good to hear you are not having too many problems with your hormone treatment.  I will be starting mine soon and hope that I have minimal side effects.


take care
