I have been on Arimidex since 8/1/12. As you stated, my osteopenia turned into osteoporosis so my Onc put me on Fosomax. I have been on Fosomaz (with all it's terrible side effects) since 12/14. My last bone density test indicates the Fosomax is working however I recently went to an Endocrinologist and she says that I can only be on Fosomax for 3 years tops. She said that if I must continue Arimidex she will start me on something else in 2017 so we will just have to sit and wait. I am sure the Arimidex has caused many side effects however I am afraid to stop taking it for fear of the cancer returning. I guess I am more afraid of cancer than side effects but we are all different and we all make decisions based on what we think is best for ourselves. I hope you can resolve your issues and resume the Arimidex if it's right for you.
