    Confusion

    Side Effects

    In July I started Anastrozole side effects continued to get worse tingling in legs and hands, loss of feeling, depression but mostly dizziness. They took me off and problems went away. Dr is adamant I need to continue adjuvant therapy so he put me on Extremestane. 10 days on that and I feel worse than before no dizziness but loss of appetitie, exhaustion, confusion and sleep disturbance. My employer has been very supportive through my treatment. But my boss called me in an said my work is being affected. While I undersatnd and agree the need for these drugs for 5 yrs I also need to work and function. Anyone have any similiar experiences or advice?
