I Have Stopped Taking Arimidex.. How Long Will I Continue With Joint Pain And Stiffness And Swelling

after discontinuing this med? I have also tried aromasin, femara, and tamoxifin with the same side effects.. I have had no quality of life taking this medication.

Answer

Hi Mary - I stopped taking Femara (a sister drug of Arimidex) in March after I found out my cancer returned and I still continue to have joint pain. Most mornings I can't hardly ball my hands up - and my knees and hips hurt so much - but like PJ said, everyone is different is reacts differently.

Hopefully you'll find a way to cope soon enough!

Good luck!
