My family doctor put me on wellbutrin and took me off effexor right before i started femara.My cancer doctor said it was the wellbutrin causing the side effects.I had been on tomaxifin but was taken off because of blood clots.
Yes, unfortunately around 33.6% report fatigue or weakness, 22% joint pain or arthritis & 18% back pain when taking Femara. These are the common side effects, if they are too bothersome, please seek medical attention and ask the doc to prescribe some other med which is more suitable to your ailment & system.
Take care, be well & safe! Best wishes.
