Lactose free Anastrozole

Onc wants me to switch from Tamoxifen to Anastrozole but I have been dairy free for years and cannot find a lactose free formulation for Anastrozole (or for Letrozole which I know could be an alternative). Pharmacist can't seem to help but thinks it may be possible to get a liquid version made up, however she said it would be very expensive and GP may object to cost. Anyone else manage to solve this problem?
