I too dont know what to do,i am coming off letrozole,for a break because my whole body hurts and aches,i now have trigger finger in my thumbs,which is spreading,,i will try anastrozole,but have heard that that is no better..Personally i dont want to go back on it,,i have been on other sites where people have come off it because of the life changing side effects.I may ring macmillan as my oncologist doesnt listen..
I was feeling the same way having extreme fatigue and achy bones. In fact, I went back to my doctor and told him I can’t live this way. My doctor suggested I try changing the time of day when I take The Letrozole. I was initially taking it in the morning and then felt tired most of the day. I now take it at night and it makes big difference. Sure, I still get tired, but not to the degree when I took the medicine in the morning. I also started a regiment of supplements: Caltrate, flaxseed oil, turmeric, a probiotic, B12, and biotin. The Caltrate is the most important one bone loss.
