Hi Everyone,

I've been on Arimidex for 2 and 1/2 years. Side effects are annoying but tolerable. I've recently been diagnosed with osteoporosis and my doctor put me on Fosamax. Week one was ok but I'm in the second week and am having stomach pains three days after taking the dose. I don't know if I just have some virus or what but was wondering who else has had this. If so, have you switched to another drug? Thanks.
