Eagle Pharmacy for the brand name Arimidex

Does anyone know if Eagle Pharmacy online is a reputable pharmacy for brand name hormonal medications? I'm going to give the treatment one more try with the brand name Arimidex and not the generic anastrozole. My oncologist agreed to monitor me if I decide not to do the hormonal treatment due to the awful side effects I experienced. Eagle Pharmacy is $60 a month for Arimidex.

    As far as I know, Eagle Pharmacy is the only source of brand name Arimidex at an affordable cost. They have been doing this for many years.

    I get my Arimidex from Eagle Pharmacy mail order. Very easy and convenient. $60 per month. I get a three month supply. Very happy with them.

    Thank you! Can I ask if your side effects aren't as bad as being on the genetic Anastrozole? This is why I'm trying the brand name. I lasted one day on Anastrozole. Also, a few here take the brand name every other day.

    For me, Teva was better than Accord but not always in stock. But, the name brand Arimidex gives me even less side effects. I hope it works well for you!

    Thank you! Crossing my fingers the brand name works out. But my gut tells me if it doesn't, having my oncologist monitor me without the hormonal treatment is the way to go. I have a few health issues that the medication will increase. She immediately agreed to monitor me, it was such a great relief. I was worried she wouldn't see me anymore. She is ordering a breast MRI and then six months later a mammogram so that every six months I have imaging done. At the end of my appointment with her, she told me that she understood because she has relatives that could not tolerate the medication. That meant the world to me.
