Arimidex, bone loss, Ezorb

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I started Arimidex today (adjuvant therapy for stage 1 breast cancer), which definitely depletes bone (it virtually eliminates estrogen). So, I am 57, osteopenia and osteoporisis diagnosis last fall, and I am starting Ezorb in the new few days--as soon as it arrives. I want to participate in a discussion on this topic. Has anyone been on Arimidex or other aromatase inhibitors and used Ezorb? Other products successfully? I have to take Arimidex for 5 years.
Thanks.
Annie17

Re: Arimidex, bone loss, Ezorb

Hello Annie:

I see your post is 2 years old, hope this gets to you. I have been on Arimidex for 1.5 years now and showing bone loss. Diagnosed with Osteoporosis at L1&2 and hips are in the osteopenia level. My Onc wants me to go on Fosamax but I don't want to take it due to the side effects. I found Ezorb and have started to take it. I hope it works for me, only time will tell.

If you are still on it, has it worked for you? Hope all is well with you. I'm a year post chemo and trying to get my life back. Look forward to your reply.
