      What would you like to know about Arimidex? I took it for 8 months and other AI's totalling 3 1/2 years......
      Why are you applying for social security? Arimidex is not a reason to qualify for it (hope this doesn't sound harsh, don't mean to be)...some people have side effects ,others have none...I'm one who had side effects, but I know people who had none at all....Please let me know what I can tell you about AI's.....

      Arimidex is a great drug that can cut your chances of recurrence. But...........many of us experience side effects with Arimidex. You can read about the SE's at arimidex.com. Common side effects include joint pain, hot flashes, and mood changes. You take arimidex once per day. The generic form is call anastrozole.

      Can you be more specific about both questions? What would you like to know about Arimidex? I assume you mean SSDI rather than social security which you are not old enough to collect. SSDI requires proof that you cannot work for a minimum of 12 consecutive months do to your disability.
