Discussions that mention arimidex

Cancer: Breast board


I'm 49 years old. Have been on arimidex for about a year and a half. A couple of months ago i started my period. I thought it was a flook and then the next month i started again, now month 3 is coming up. What should I do? I was diagnosed with breast cancer April 2006 estogen positive, her pos. 12 lymph nodes bad. Went thru chemo/ radiation /herceptin therapy.

Thanks for getting back to me. I'm going to ask if I can have my ovaries removed instead of switching to tamox. It took a while to get used to the arimidex and I don't want to have to get used to the side effects of a new drug because it really wasn't much fun.
I would talk to the person who is prescribing the Arimidex. When I started it I was told it was for postmenopausal use only. I also know someone who had periods after she started it and was switched to tamoxifen.
