Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (9 hours ago):

  • Began 5 year follow up drug treatment for breast cancer with Femara. Taken off due to side effects for 2 weeks and then put on Exemestane 25 mg daily. Started Exemestane 2 weeks ago. Began having mild tremors in right hand and up to mid-elbow 2 days ago. Usual reported side effects of drug, i.e. joint pain and sweats, have been mild so far. There have been no other medication changes or daily routine changes besides starting the Exemestane.

  • I want to know if my protruding forehead and cerebral atrophy will go away. I was taken off the medication in December 2013. I was on Aridimex for 2 years and then Tamoxifen for 6 years. Aridimex caused TMJ, Osteopenia etc.

  • From this study (7 days ago):

  • I wish to switch out budesonide, which is $1000 per month, to try boswellia serrata instead. I have had success in the past with boswellia for joint pain.

    I have rheumatoid arthritis and collagenous colitis.
