Migraine Headaches on Anastrazole


Re: Migraine Headaches on Anastrazole


I have just read your post about you suffering from visual migraine whilst on anastrozole.  I have been on anastrozole for three and a half years and last month I was having so many visual migraines that the docotor has taken me off it for 4 weeks. I have been visual migraine free since I stopped taking the anastrozole and although the doctor wants me to try another drug instead of anastrozole I really don't know what to do. I was wondering if you found a solution to the problem and whether or not you are still taking anastrozole?

Kind regards,

Migraine Headaches on Anastrazole

Does anyone suffer wit.h migraine type headaches since taking anastrazole? I don’t get them all the time, had a few this week, typical type migraine with visual disturbance...usually goes within 30 minutes.  I drink plenty of water throughout the day so it’s not dehydration...
