Hi, I'm Lucius

Has anyone gained weight from taking this medication? I am taking this as an adjuvant medicine post my chemotherapy from ER Positive Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Stage 2. I switched from Anastrozole (Arimidex) due to extreme body pain. I am eating exactly the same amount of calories and have gained weight and can’t lose it. Is there a scientific/medical reason? Thanks.

Hi, I'm Betti

I feel I may have gained some weight the 5 years I was on it. I have now been off of it for almost 2 years and things have started getting better.
