      I think they all have similar side effects, but they react differently on each of us. I switched to Aromasin from Arimidex after 6 months, too much pain. I am considering trying Femara soon as pain is getting worse. But I also have fibromyalgia so it is difficult to know what is what sometimes. I hope by now you have this figured out!

      no problems with me, it says on the bottle that it causes drowsiness so I take it at night but the pharmasist said it doesn't,
