Hi girls. I have been taking Letrozole for almost 2 years now. I have developed a love/hate with this drug. I love how it keeps me safe, but hate the sore joints it gives me.
I have tamed the side effects with cod liver oil and glucosamine.
I recently bought my usual cod liver oil supplements from Holland and Barrett. I trust their quality. This time their best offer was cod liver oil with calcium. I thought I would give it a try..........IT IS MIRACULOUS!! The pain in my joints has stopped altogether!!
They should prescribe on the NHS!!
Hope this helps all you sufferers of side effects.
Love J xx
Just a quick update,I have always taken fish oil but I added
Calcium and the results have been fantastic,the pain is so minimal
it's amazing.Thank you for sharing your great advise with us.
Can you get the calcium and cod liver oil from anywhere else, or maybe get codliver oil and calcium separately. Can you advise please. My joints are a nightmare. I take Vitamin D and B complex and a multi vitamin and mineral every day.
Yes I'm sure the supplements are widely available, in chemists and supermarkets for example. Both can be bought separately from each other...but I found out that it was the combination of the two that eased my pain!
So pleased that this has helped some of you.
I too have been on letrazole for 2 years for secondary cancer, the side effects are awful with my joints, thanks for this am hoping to get some tomorrow and give it a go:)))))
Hello everyone- to anybody just finding out about this site, this is its joy and support.
I only started on Letrazole one month ago, but having seen these postings I started almost immediately on the codliveroil and calcium- I have no real side effects. Just a very slight ache in my leg joints.
So thank you all, and do as they say on Strictly
