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.

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
