    I sweated LIKE A PIG! It was worth every single drop to starve any lingering cancer cells from the hormones they needed to grow.

    I was on it for 5 years. Everyone is different. I had some joint pain but walking, staying active, Tylenol arthritis formula and yoga helped. The benefits outweighed the side effects. Wishing you minimal side effects! Keep the questions coming! We care about you!

    Everyone's side effects are different. Some have little to no side effects, while other's may have side effects. The good thing is that if you have side effects from one hormone blocker, you may be switched to another. Most people are able to tolerate one of the three choices, or sometimes tamoxifen might be given.
