Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I took 20mg fluoxitine daily for 11 years. my doctor increased the dosage to 40mg daily. within 3 weeks time, i started having night sweats. is this due to doubling the dose? (1 answer)
Could the generic for ARIMIDEX be a cause for the hair loss as well as the night sweats, instead of the fluxotine?. The doubling of fluxotine & the start of the anastrole both started at about the same time. Which one is mostlikely to be the culprit? I am going to stop one or both of them. I'm 89 yrs old and gonna die from something, and I don't want it to be the medication I'm taking to try and destroy the estrogen still being produced in this old body even though I no longer have my female organs. Also
my AST Liver function increased higher than normal by 9 points after I took it only 2 weeks. Would
this hormone cause that too?
- I'm interested in your study on anastrozole. i'm taking it and have so many side effects all in the form of pain. tylenol doesn't help and i can't take nsaids. i've only been on it for three months.
I have bad knee pain, trouble walking, standing, due to pain. Stiff neck. Headache. I live in two story home and stairs are painful to climb. I care for my 97 year old mother and I'm extremely crabby with her. I also work (necessarily) for three hours a day but not every day. I've been on the Anastrozole for three months. Do I need to continue the Anastrozole? My score for how aggressive my breast cancer was came back a "three."
- Does yur ankles swell after stopping arimidex (1 answer)
I stopped taking it about a year ago, my pulse rate is now below 100 , but my ankles swell, back hurts, bone pain.
- What causes it? and why is it so painful? (1 answer)
I can lift my arm out in front of me but not out to the side!! The diclofenac doesn't seem to help. Any suggestions? Has anyone been on benlysta?
- Interaction of arimidex with ginseng
Arimidex is blocking estrogen production, Ginseng is balancing estrogen. Are they interfering with each other?

- 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.
- Bystolic and shoulder pain
About 2 weeks after starting on Bystolic 5mg I started to have a lot of pain in my right shoulder. I asked my doctor if it could be cause by taking Bystolic but of course she didn't think so. I've been on the drug for almost 5 weeks and the pain is getting more noticeable and aggravating. Can I stop taking the Bystolic cold turkey to see if the pain goes away. All I'm basically taking it for is blood pressure spiking due to anxiety and I don't even think I need it after being reassured by the cardiologist that my heart is healthy. My Blood pressure is usually low except when I have stress or anxiety.
- 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.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (15 hours ago):
Started 1mg Armindex on 12/16/14. Had 1st XGeva shot on 1/2/15. Very nauseated and vomiting last 2 days. Take Zofran for nausea.
From this study (1 day ago):
I am taking the Lipitor to lower Cholestrol and Ramipril and baby Asprin post heart attack in 2007 to keep blood pressure low and help prevent stroke. Recently, I had stroke like symptoms, and was put on Clopidogrel. Tests for stroke were negative, but the Clopidogrel was prescribed as a prophylaxis. Shortly after starting it, I started having constipation, which I had never had to such an extent before that. I haven't seen anywhere that clopidogrel was associated with constipation, but perhaps the drug combinations is at fault. The shoulder joint pain could be just old age. I had a dislocated shoulder and torn tendons in left side about 10 years ago. I was told because of the damage, that shoulder would become arthritic, but that doesn't explain the right shoulder, which has similar symptoms.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Been on adderall for 1 week. Neck and shoulder pain began on day 5. Thought it may be from being able to focus and stay in one position for a long time. i.e. when driving.
