  • Anastrozole pain too much for comfort
    I have been taking the generic form of Aridimex for 1-1/2 years. My short term memory is extremely bad now. I have horrible knee arthritic pain in both knees, so bad sometimes I can hardly climb the stairs of my home. I have trouble sleeping at night due to this pain. I am much more short-tempered than I ever was before starting this medication. I have also lost a great deal of my hair (like male baldness in front). I feel like I have aged 10 years in the past year and a half. Too afraid of a recurrence of breast cancer to stop taking it and most other hormone blocking drugs have similar side effects.
  • Dont use copaxone. it caused huge necrosis of my flesh!!
    I took injections for 1.5 yrs. No problem. Then received a batch that caused huge indentions in my skin. I am a body builder, very obsessed with how my body and skin looks. Now I have massive (1/2 dollar sized) craters in my thighs and upper arms. I can no longer compete. Copaxone ruined my life. So sad, I was diagnosed with MS, but it's the medication that destroyed me. it's the f**ing treatment
    . Be careful. The drug companies don't care. They are just making $$$ off of you.
  • Ms relapse - changed to copaxone in april
    I've never joined one of these sites but saw this site. I have had MS for 14yrs but changed to Copaxone in April, had a relapse last week and wondered how others were getting on with it. I have a puffy left calf/ankle which can be a side effect of Copaxone - have others had this - can you reduce the swelling?
    If I haven't started using this site - my apologies!
  • Developed systemic scleroderma while on copaxone for 10 yrs.
    I just tested positive for both crest and systemic scleroderma. I already have ms and have been on copaxone over 10 yrs. I believe copaxone may have caused this. I dont blame the makers. I am sure it has helped more then hurt, but I wonder if this has happened to others. If so it should be something ppl are aware of. That there is a risk.
  • Debilitating side effects of anastrozole
    Initial 2 months on anastrozole I felt fine. After the 3rd month, I became depressed. I awakened with

    trigger thumb requiring 2 cortisone shots to regain use of my hand! I also experienced burning pain in right shoulder, right bicep, right forearm, right wrist & spasms in right hand, intermittently. I had intense pressure in my right groin extending to my right knee along my varicose vein causing it to dilate. I could not walk for more than ten minutes and even standing was difficult. Anastrozole was d/c'd and am now on exemestane. Symptoms persist but to a much lesser degree. Appointments with a physical therapist for the groin problem are alleviating the pressure.
