How long for drug switch to take effect?


Question from Cyn: I switched from tamoxifen to Arimidex this past Saturday. How long does it take for the new drug to take over?
Answers - Jennifer Griggs, M.D., M.P.H. Assuming that you switched because of side effects from tamoxifen, you should start to notice a change in the next couple of weeks.
