      After two years on Anastrozole (generic for Arimidex) the side effects have become too much for me.

      I have elbow, wrist and shoulder pain often. I also have some knee pain when I hike or walk long distances.

      But the worse side effect for me has been increased emotional ups and downs.

      Recently I switched to Aromasin in the hopes that the side effects won't be as bad. But I am also considering discontinuing this hormonal "therapy".
