Thanks for the replies, Carolyn & Sue.
Yep, mine's Accord too, though I'm sure I've had others. I also take Efalex Brain Formula capsules (omega-3 & -6 & evening primrose). I haven't had any problems with hair thinning: I have incredibly thick hair which thinned durting my natural menopause, then thickened again. I haven't noticed it thinning since starting the letrozole.
I get this too! Difficult to bend my fingers in the morning but then OK during the day. I'm on accord brand, which is the one that people prefer. But I've always been on this so can't compare. Also take cod liver oil and calcium tablets.
Generally stiff and achy throughout all joints.
Started to lose some hair, which is a little concerning so I avoid combing and washing where possible!
Hi, I've been taking Letrozole for about six months and everything was fine until a few weeks ago. I now wake up with stiff, painful finger joints, and sometimes my wrists feel odd and painful. This can go off, or it can continue through the day.
I had been addicted to crocheting (I even used to do it whlie waiting for radiotherapy each day), then I went through a month or two when I lost interest (I had a bad Crohn's flare up which knocked the stuffing out of me and took some time to get over). I've started crocheting again and now the hand pains are putting a stop to that. Could they be related to the Letrozole? Does anyone else get it, and what can I do about it?
I notice someone mentioned taking viamin.C.I used to take vitamin C & Zinc, as well as vitamin B complex, but I was taking so many pills that I stopped taking them when I started the Letrozole. Would it help to go back on them?
And do different brands of Letrozole do different things to you? I haven't made a note of which brands I've been given, as everything seemed fine, but I've had two or three different ones, I think.Do symptoms kick in after a certain time?
