Re: Anastrozole

That's really helpful, thank you. I'm still waiting! I have a holiday booked so starting them when I get back just before radiotherapy. I think it's the fear of the unknown & all the waiting. I will definitely keep track of what I have - great advice 👍

Re: Anastrozole

Hi Happy Me. I’m on anastrozole and have been for 3 years, 2 to go.  No change in mood other than the normal off day but don’t put it down to the drug.  Only thing I get is joint aches hands and legs mainly.  Painkillers help so when bad I take paracetamol for a few days.  I have found this drug can be brand led.  Something I find strange as the active ingredient is the same in all.  Sun brand is suiting me fine at the moment.  Had different brand 2 months ago which did not suit me at all.  I suggest making a note of the brands supplied each time  and how you feel on them.  I always try different ones if supplied and if better than previous I ask for that brand each time.   Worth doing as each brand is different for sure.  you will be fine on the tablet I am sure.  Anastrozole was the best option along with radiotherapy for my cancer so I went with it and it’s ok.  💓.

Re: Anastrozole

Hi,

That is so good to hear. 

I am awaiting my bone scan to see if I can go on Anastrozole and all I have heard about the side effects has been negative! 

Can I ask how long you have been taken Anastrozole?
