Arimidex is the most common hormone therapy drug taken by post-menopausal breast cancer survivors. We’re warned about sore and aching bones and joints, the danger of osteoporosis… but no one ever seems to mention the drug’s affect on your hair, and for many of us, it’s the most irritating side effect of all.
