I started on Letrozole to shrink my breast cancer tumor. It worked for while, then I had the tumor removed. I said no to chemo and radiation. My oncologist recommends that I stay on this evil drug for at least 5+ years. I can barely tolerate the many side effects from this drug. My surgery was 4 months ago. Total time taking this has been 1 year and 4 months. The side effects seem to be getting worse, especially the hair, depression and overall feeling of my bones crumbling. I am 55 and was diagnosed at 53. I cry everyday and am trying to find a way to deal with this but so far have not found a way. I am wanting to quit taking this and get back to my better quality of life. There are NO guarantees about being "cancer free", so I just want to enjoy my life again. I feel like I have aged decades. I am taking a holistic approach and take many supplements, use essential oils, Noni juice, etc. so I am being proactive about my survival. I feel like this drug is killing me. Any comments are welcome.
I've been diagnosed with Lichen Planus after a month of having the rash - at first I thought I was multiple bug bites but after seeing a doctor and being diagnosed the idea is that oral contraceptive has caused the onset of lichen planus. Ive been prescribed an array of creams and also a tablet to take daily (Fexofenadine 120mg) recently, my family has discovered that the maximum dosage for this tablet is 180mg so I stepped up to 1,5 pills a day which cleared the skin condition almost instantly however after two days of full dosage I cut back to to 1 a day and have since been experiencing bad stomach cramps and the constant feeling of nausea and slight dizziness. I was wondering if anyone has previously/is also finding this.
The list of conditions and medications is not complete. I feel my immune system is very compromised and want some ideas on how to increase my immunity. I exercise on a regular basis, walk nearly every day, am trying to eat better, take vitamins etc, don't smoke or drink, go to doc and take their ...
I am curious to know if others had Lichen Planus prior to learning of their RA or if it was the other way around? Did your doctor or dentist make a connection? And are RA flare-ups associated with the mouth ulcers also getting worse for anyone else?
My oncologist just prescribed Anastrozole. I was taking Tamoxifen before but my breast cancer came back. I had chemo and radiation and lost my hair with the chemo. My hair is finally coming back. Am I going to lose it again when I start taking Anastrozole?? I dont want to be bald again.

Hello I had been taking trazadone and cyproheptadine for 3 years when I was diagnosed with Stage 2b breast cancer. I had no idea there could be a link until just now. I would love to hear more about your experiences. Thank you Deanna Scott
