Time Taken: 3 years

Reason: infiltrating ductal carcinoma grade 3 Date: 9 November 2008
Side Effects
joint aches particularly in my fingers, vaginal skin tears easily without lubrication and is dry, almost complete loss of libido (and really miss it as I feel like I'm wasting a wonderful part of my life without really feeling the passion and I still love my husband), possibly associated mild depression and weight gain (but may not be related).

Additional Thoughts
If I miss a couple of days by mistake I start to have sex dreams and feel so much better in the daytime. On the other hand, I want to stay alive. I was on Tamoxifin for 5 years and didn't really have any side effects except the vaginal dryness. I've been on Femara for three years.

Sex: F
Age: 61
Location: Tampa
Time Taken: 3 weeks

Reason: hormone positive breast cancer Date: 10 December 2007
Side Effects
Both Femara and Arimidex gave me severe insomnia. Arimidex gave me a constant headache and Femara makes me sweat profusely. I have narrowly decided I prefer the sweating over the constant headache. Femara also gave me severe joint pain although that has faded.

Additional Thoughts
I know this drug is important treatment but it just makes me angry to keep reading that side effects are "mild." For a lot of people they are quite severe. I think we should be treated with enough respect to be told the truth -- this drug may be hard to take, but it may save your life.
