I’m due to stop taking it in a few weeks time. Can anyone tell me how they felt after stopping do side effects improve? How long did it take? Where there any unexpected effects?
Stopping Letrozole after five years. - My Breast Cancer ...
My Breast Cancer Community
Hi ,I was on Anastrozole, which is very similar, for 5 years and fortunately did not have any side effects when I came off them. I hope the same applies to you. Good luck x
I was on Letrozole (painful muscles and joints) and changed to exastemane (not quite as painful) but I’m about to ask the oncologist if I can come off them even though I haven’t done my ten years yet. The pain is getting worse and worse - though of course it could be arthritis.So I’m really going to be interested in any replies.
I am just coming off letrozole myself after 5 years on tamoxifen and 5 years of letrozole. I was getting side effects with the letrozole and was getting a lot of running to the toilet. I am finding this is easing off although today I got bad stomach cramps. However this could be related to anything. All the best I am looking forward to my hair thickening up hopefully and maybe losing a bit of weight.
