Hi Andi. I’d been on Accord for two years and have always requested it. Yes, I have hot flushes and achey joints, but manageable. So I made a big fuss last month when the pharmacy only had Teva. But it was Teva or nothing, and the pharmacist went through the list of ingredients with me, and there wasn’t much difference. She told me to try it with an open mind otherwise I would be sure to have side effects! So I did. And actually I now prefer Teva because, while the side effects were no different, Teva has days of week on pills - great for me as I can never remember if I’ve taken it or not! Debbie x
Hi Andi, if you look at the treatment thread there is a great deal said about brands and Letrozole. In fact, a massive discussion! I've had three brands, and my preference is Teva. Accord makes me headachy and sweaty. Very personal as our bodies all react differently. X
No problem at all. Why don't you try some Manx while you still have Cipla? I did that with Accord. I still have some Manx for "emergencies". I'm a bit "old hat" if I'm honest. I had Accord from my Cancer Hospital so like to stick to it-but that said it is agreeing with me so far-hope I'm not speaking too soon!!
I've had Manx brand. I found it ok but I try to get Accord as I find it suits me better. If I'm honest I wasn't as good on Manx as Accord but think it's down to the individual.
All the best on it.
