Hi all,

After almost three years on Aromasin (with minimal SE's, the usual, stiff joints when sitting too long at the , thin hair, moderate weight gain, belly fat , good energy, reasonably good sleep and bearable hot flushes) I am starting on GENERIC anastrozole with some anxiety (although my BS, a woman, thinks it is a good idea to change every once in a while). My wallet thinks it's great: going from $380 out of pocket price to... $38!!!

Did any of you follow that path, and what to expect (I read horror stories about the GENERIC drug having worst SE's than the brand Arimidex??).

I was taking Aromasin in the morning (steroid), and I certainly was at a good energy level.  My bone density has been going down steadily, but not on bone drugs yet.

When is the best time to take "Arimidex-equivalent"?  Is there a type of food to optimize the drug efficiency?

For now I planned to take "my first one" after lunch today...

Thanks for any advice,

Have a "bud-y" Sunday

I wish I knew the answer, Catherine! It would seem to me they would both act the same way, but I am not sure....
love
