I have been on femara since january 1, 2008. In the last 2 to 3 weeks i am experiencing alot of  joint and bone pain.  i have another month before i go to the doctor. Will this go away? Should I ask her to go off it, or just try and bear the pain?

When I was switched from Tamoxifen to Femara, I had the same side effects.  I endured it for a few months, but was so tired and achey, the doctor changed me to Arimedix and I tolerate that much better.  Everyone handles these meds differently.  I would call the doctor and see what he/she says.  No sense in suffereing when they can give you something different.
 
Let us know how it goes.
L & H,

Thanks for getting back to me. Unfortunately I have tried Arimedix and it actually was worse. The joint pain was extreme. I was on that for 6 months. I guess all these meds. are accumulative (like the chemo!) I guess I'll just wait until next month when I go to the Dr.

Thanks again.
