Stopping Anastrozole


Re: Stopping Anastrozole

Hi Julie,


I'm sorry that you are going through such a tough time with the Anastrozole. I dont know whether you have tried our Someone Like Me service? It would give you the opportunity to talk to a volunteer/volunteers who had perhaps been through similar issues. Sometimes it just helps to know that you are not on your own struggling with these things. Our direct number is 0114 263 6490, or you can email us someonelikeme@breastcancercare.org.uk


Re: Stopping Anastrozole

Hi Julie sorry to hear you are having problems. There are a couple of ladies on going through treatment/hormone therapy having the same issues as you.  Might be worth popping over there to have a look. All the best x

Stopping Anastrozole



I am interested to hear from anyone who has stopped taking Anastrozole. I have stopped after 3 months. I have been experiencing various symptoms including depression, incredible tiredness and weakness, poor apetite and others. My consultant has agreed that these are possibly due to the Anastrozole and recommended that I stop taking for a while.

Has anyone stopped taking Anastrozole after similar symptoms? Did the symptoms improve and if so, how long did it take for you to see some improvement.

Thank you for reading and responding
