Taking aromasin.Wbc is lower than last year.Now 2.5. Can you give me any help?
Asked by Johnny Reatherford 3 months ago.

This would not be a common problem with aromasin. i would want to know about any other meds, prescription or otherwise; alcohol use; evidence for b12 or folic acid deficiency; any other symptoms?.... Has it been rechecked? Transient suppression of white count is common for many reasons. Blessings Answered by Pablo Nuckoles 3 months ago.


Will taking aromasin and herceptin make your hair fall out?
Asked by Teresita Stefan 3 months ago.

NO, neither of these medication causes hair loss. Hair loss for cancer patients is associated with radiation therapy and chemotherapy, not adjuvant treatments such as Aromasin and Herceptin. Learn more about these medications by visiting their websites. Answered by Tatyana Levie 3 months ago.

The anti estrogen drug Aromasin is causing alot of aches and pains?
My mother in law has been on anti estrogen drugs for a year, and changing from one to another, so far, all of them have caused her to have aches and pains all over her body. now on Aromasin, she is wondering is there is a way she can get over her side effects. Asked by Lani Abbed 3 months ago.

I have taken Arimidex, another aromatase inhibitor, for almost five years now following my treatment for breast cancer - next month will be my last. I had aches, pains and stiffness for a while. I found that most of the pains, and the night cramps I had, disappeared gradually after the first year or so; the joint stiffness and has never gone away completely, but has lessened considerably. The first several months were the worst - I remember having to hold on to things to walk when I got out of bed in the morning - and the only thing that kept me taking it was knowing that it was reducing my chance of recurrence I know everybody's reaction is different, but maybe your m-i-l's symptoms will also lessen over time. I'm sorry, I know I'm not much help and I hope someone comes along who can advise you Answered by Stacie Seabaugh 3 months ago.

I would like to suggest that she get off these drugs completely. I made it through the change with no drug therapy. I didn't like the options that the available drugs offered. Women have been making their way through the change for millenia with no one's help. Unless it would be herbal or nutritional. Answered by Albertina Lustberg 3 months ago.


What Should a person with breastcancer IV take after tamoxifen and aromasin. Arimidex Femara or Faslodex?
Asked by Georgeanna Rossotto 3 months ago.

It depends on whether or not you are pre or post menopausal as well as other factors. It seems like many women are just "left in the breeze" with no medication after their successful 5 year course of Tamoxifen though, and if the cancer rears it's ugly head again or a new cancer is found, the lab work on the cells from the new development would need to be done before anything could be prescribed. I hope that you are NED after 5 years of Tamoxifen and can go into the "careful vigilance" mode. Answered by Natividad Torrano 3 months ago.

This is very difficult to answer. I assume the person is post-menopausal. Usually Arimidex would be used even before Aromasin. If this person cannot take Arimidex for some reason, then should get Femara then if that fails, start Faslodex. If the person is not chemically or surgically post-menopausal, only tamoxifen is approved and only for 5 year period. AFter that, tends to make cancer worse. Answered by Nanci Kager 3 months ago.

If you mean stage 4, morphine or Dilaudid. Answered by Neely Grimsley 3 months ago.

That's a question you should ask an oncologist, not here. Answered by Karlyn Deleonardis 3 months ago.

So im a 18 year old guy, been lifting weights since i was 13. Im 6´3 200 lbs 8-9% bodyfat. My only dream is to become a fitness model, and being able to make a living out of this. Because of this, im considering steroids. For 2 years now i have been constantly researching about steroids. I found great info about proper cycling, how to treat side effects during cycle, pct etc. All i want to know is what would happen if i did this. Will it damage my endocrine system? Will i need TRT for the rest of my life? Or will i most likely recover? BTW, im planning of running a cycle of: Test E, 500mg twice a week, Week 1-10 Aromasin, 25 mg everyday, Week 1-10 HCG, 250 iu's every 4 days Week 3-8 Nolvadex (40 mg everyday, Week 12-14) and (20 mg everyday, Week 14-16) Clomid, 50 mg everyday Week 12-16 I only want answers from medical professionals or people with experience and knowledge about this topic. Answered by Eva Reitz 3 months ago.

I'd save steroids for later. When you get older your test level drops, so you might have to inject whether you want it or not. At 18, your test level is at its peak, you don't need extra, the drugs are only 25% of the equation. You can build a great body without steroids. And you already have pretty impressive stats. Focus on definition rather than size. However if you're fully committed and will not change your mind, Test e 500mg x 10wks is a good cycle. That is what I run. I don't think you need HCG, I never took it, the less drugs you take the better. Keep Aromasin on hand, but don't take it unless you need it. I never used it, but I've always had Letro on hand just in case. For PCT I only did Nolva 20/20/10/10. 20mg does the same as 40mg. So in summary, this is my cycle: Test e, 500mg x 10wks (2 injections) 2 weeks after last injections - Nolva 20/20/10/10. This is such a mild cycle, you probably won't need HCG or an AI. These are useful with heavier cycles like Test e + Tren a. The only side effect I got was some hot flashes. Never got any gyno, no ball shrinkage (they only come up a bit), no severe acne (i get acne without steroids). I came off this cycle about 4 weeks ago, everything is fine, sex drive is good, no issues. >>> Will it damage my endocrine system? Will i need TRT for the rest of my life? I don't think so. If you stay on it for a long time then maybe, I am not sure. But I've never heard of anyone been permanently shut down from a 10wk cycle of test e. One word of warning however, steroids can be pretty addictive psychologically, you lose interest to train naturally. As a result I only use them sometimes, once a year to give myself a boost. The majority of time I still train naturally. Answered by Reyes Rockefeller 3 months ago.

Ok, so Ive had gyno for about 4 years now. I wouldn't say it's the worst case but yet it's still pretty bad. I've been refered to a surgeon on the nhs but it didn't state when. Gyno has had a big impact on my life, I have no confidence, i always feel down and frustrated at having funny perky little **** like a 11 year old girl! I just wish I had a flat chest like any other normal male. I reckon I'd have quite a decent set of pecs aswell but due to having gyno I don't. It annoys me also the fact that it makes you look like your fat cause you have so called " man boobs" but it's not even fat. I'm 18 and my teenage years are meant to be the best years of your life, well not for me. Answered by Randee Zimmel 3 months ago.

You should be able to take meds like aromasin or arimidex to stop that dead in its tracks. It is fixable. I had two friends who had it taken care of when they were about 19. Answered by Chanelle Pletcher 3 months ago.

Life has become not worth living for her trying these drugs. Answered by Douglass Tinnon 3 months ago.

Muscle and joint aches are quite common on these drugs (class = aromatase inhibitors). Examples are letrozole (Femara), anastrozole (Arimidex) and exemestane (Aromasin). Fevers are not so common; I do have some patients complain about nausea, but MANY complain about aches. Sometimes they are intolerable, other times minor. Occasionally they will get better with time. Assuming she has breast cacner, the issue becomes is it worth the side effects to get the benefit. If her risk is high for recurrence, or if she already has metastatic disease, it may be worth it to stay on treatment. If low risk then maybe not. Tamoxifen is an acceptable alternative if she is on these drugs after curative intent surgery (so called adjuvant therapy)- it is not quite as good as these others but nearly so. It does not cause so much in the way of aches, but is associated with higher risk of blood clots and also for uterine cancer in postmenopausal women (though risks in both cases are extremely low). If she has metastatic disease, she has another option called Faslodex (a shot). She should discuss this with her oncologist. God bless, best wishes Answered by Dion Drowne 3 months ago.
