Re: Sandoz Brand of Letrozole

You are lucky to get Femara as I tried before and they wouldn’t prescribe it as too expensive £95 a box

Re: Sandoz Brand of Letrozole

Mostly bone/joint pain which has been minimal and tbh nothing for last couple of days.....however today I’ve had a yellowish discharge ... I read that vaginal bleeding can be a side effect.... has anybody had any experience of this and does it go away.

Re: Sandoz Brand of Letrozole

I was lucky enough to be prescribed Femara when Sandoz was discontinued...... have tried cheaper brands in the past and had bad side effects...... been on Femara for a week now and minimal S/e so fingers crossed I’ll be ok

Re: Sandoz Brand of Letrozole

Probably discontinued as it's more expensive thank Accord , Cipra etc ...the only thing u can do is ask for the original brand Femera which is the same as Sandoz. You will probably have to fight to get it but if you take it 5/10 years you want some quality of life without too many side effects .

I’ve just been contacted by Boots to say they can’t supply the Sandoz brand any more as it has been discontinued. It’s the only brand that suits me. Absolutely gutted!

Re: Sandoz Brand of Letrozole

I was on letrozole for over 2 years and preferred the Accord brand and so it was prescribed.
One month accord wasent available and I was given Sandoz which I wasent too keen on. I think it's the generic one nearest to femera ..the original.

Sandoz Brand of Letrozole

After having problems getting my usual prescription I phoned Sandoz today to be told it was discontinued a few weeks ago. Iam absolutely gutted as this was the only brand which gave me no side effects ... I now have to see my oncologist to find an alternative. The side effects of different brands were horrendous as Iam sure many of you know.

Wanted to give a heads up to any of you ladies out there who are on Sandoz Letrozole.
