My mother took Arimidex for 3 years after stage 2 breast cancer. She did chemo and radiation and beat the cancer. Arimidex destroyed her liver she wound up getting non alcoholic fatty liver disease from this drug and felt worse than ever she said the side effects were worse than chemo. The doctor scared her about getting off because he said the cancer would probably come back. She died at age 72 from end stage liver disease. There should be lawsuits against this drug. It states that liver problems are rare but they do occur. Please let me know if anyone else has liver disease from these breast cancer drugs!

I am so sorry about your mother....to me, all the hormone therapy drugs are awful...I tried them all after stage 2...but discontinued all...figure something else will likely kill me..but drs. Call me non compliant!!  I am 82, no aches or pains ...but you are right about making public aware of the serious side effects of these drugs they almost force us to take!  But I still sorry occasionally.....just take immune inhancers.
