Arimidex okay to take every other day?


Question from BHansen: I am taking Arimidex and have severe joint problems. What do you think about taking it every other day? Are there any studies on that, other than not taking it at all?
Answers - Patricia A. Ganz, M.D. I would not advise taking it every other day. But you might want to discuss changing to one of these other aromatase inhibitors which are by brand name Femara and Aromasin (chemical name: exemestane). Sometimes switching to one of the other drugs in this class may modify the symptoms

On Wednesday, August 15, 2007, the Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Managing Ongoing Medications. Patricia Ganz, M.D. and moderator Lillie Shockney, R.N., B.S., M.A.S. answered your questions about staying on track with breast cancer medications you have to take on a regular basis.
