I was on arimidex (generic is Anastrozole) for 5 years. I stopped taking this pill about 1 month ago. I realized one day that I did not have the constant aches and pains that had bothered me for 5 years. The first 3 years were the worst. Felt like I had arthritis. Getting up from a chair was torture. The past year it seemed to have improved, but after 5 years was I just getting used to it. Now that I have finished my 5 year regimin my body does not have the aches and pains I had gotten accustomed to. Hooray! There is hope ladies. Hang in there. I'm 61 now but my bones feel better than they did after I took Anastrozole during the 5 years.
