      Update: I stopped Letrozo!e three days ago after a week. Joint and bone pain so bad I could barely walk, dizziness, stomach pain like I haven't experienced since I was in chemo and taking Neulasta. I know these drugs are supposed to "help" us but survival has got to come with some quality of life. I guess back to the doctor and see if we can come up with plan D.

      Have you tried a different generic manufacturer (or will your insurer cover the brand Femara)? There’s also exemestane—some women find it milder.

      I took Exemestane for ONE day. Had a bad reaction to it; that's how I ended up on Letrozole. I'm ready to just be done with theses drugs. It's all a crap shoot anyway.
