Thanks for your reply JUJU
I have read about
side effects and wondered if anyone on Arimidex was having any other than hot flashes.
What worries me is fatigue, nausea and depression.
I won't mind the hot flashes too much, recently recovered from Lyme Disease and am cold all the time...so heat will be welcome.
As for depression I cannot handle anti drugs.
When I had Lyme I was given Paxil and in just a few days I thought I was losing my mind. I wasn't really depressed, just down about
being so sick don't even know why it was prescribed and that drug almost pushed me over the edge. Also tried Wellbutrin, same thing happened.
As for dry skin you may be right about
thyroid, common problem it seems.
The stinging of nerves and numbness in your little finger is not mentioned in side effects of Arimidex, but who knows it could be a rare one. We surely don't all have the same reactions.
I so glad you shared your hormome therapy experience with me it took away a lot of my anxiety. I kept thinking how was I going to take a pill everyday for five years if it made me sick I was sure I would give up and take my chances. Even my doctor said the only side effect I will have is hot flashes. I can handle that........
