dr recently switched me from tomoxfin to new drug called arimidex. Have been having a lot of side effects, primarily nausea, runny nose, cough and sore throat. anyone else taking this who can help out? Dont want to go back on the tomx as the hot flashes were uncontrollable.

I can't help you out from personal experience, but I found their website: Taking Arimidex? . I would ask your doctor about the cough, runny nose, etc. as it's possible that your counts are low and you've picked up an upper respiratory virus, as opposed to them being a direct side effect of the drug.

I hope the site helps out. Astra Zeneca is pretty good about patient education, and if your doctor doesn't have their patient materials, they'll be available on the site.

I hope it's an improvement in the side effects department. And at least there are good anti-nausea treatments for that particular side effect...

Good luck. You'll be in my ers.

I hope these side effects are very short term for you and you'll soon be feeling much better.

Sending lots of prayers and warm wishes your way. I hope ths new med will work out okay for you.

thanks every one am trying taking meds at different times in the day. So far after dinner seems to control the nausea the best I talked to thr dr, said give the meds about 4 to 6 weeks to get adjusted to it side effects should go away. Beleive me if they are here after the 6 weeks are over I will be calling the dr back.

Thanks for the hugs Debbie
