Hi I've been on letrozole from April ,I was on HRT for the menaporse plus anti depression tablets and beterblockers for migraine I've stop taking HRT ,, I'm 52 but feel 90, my body feels like I've been hit by a bus , all my joints hurt fingers swell ankles ache back ache hot flushes feel tiered all the time can't sleep at night now have really bad pains in my neck hurts to turn my head to the side very stiff and feel like my bones are cracking as well as vertigo witch it had before but it's a lot worse now I could go on and on just wondering if this is what everyone else feels
I think what you are describing is known as formication. I had it for a while post menopause then it stopped,
I hope yours will soon.
Also, if your skin is only slightly dry it can itch severely, One of the best moisturisers for atopic skin conditions is Doublebase and it is available on prescription if your doctor thinks it an appropriate.
I have been taking Letrozole for 4 years now and I wanted to ask does any one have severe joint pain all over my body. It started in my lower back now I hurt every place on my body and I have also gained so much weight in just the stomach area. I have terrible hot flashes and it is terrible to be outside in the heat. How long do I have to be own this drug and is there any help for the side effects.
was nice to now someone else comeing off letrozole for three weeks,i am on day one.hope day five is good for me.
