Hi happyboobs, have just seen your post. I was on letrozole for 5 years then it stopped working.Swapped to exemestane 2-3 weeks ago. The extreme fatigue which I suffered when I was on letrozole went within a few days, however with exemestane I am suffering constipation, will try to get some advice on this. Hope this helps.
i started on them the next day of seeing my oncologist i hope you find that the swap is the right one for you , treatment can be awful because of the side effects but i i say to my self i can do this , stay strong and positive janey x

Hi, I am would also be very interested to hear about other ladies experiences on this subject re switching from Letrozole to exemestane as I would like to try to improve my quality of life and energy levels.
My 'get up and go' has gone! I have lost motivation for things.
I don't think I am depressed as I am sleeping quite well ( bit concerned about that changing on exemestane) and eating ok.
Best wishes to all.
