Hello, I've been taking Evista for 5 years and my Doctor said I could stop taking it at this point. I will discontinue taking it next month and was wondering if anyone experienced any withdrawal symptoms from stopping?

Hi. I took it for 3 years (many years ago) and had no withdrawal symptoms but then I didn't 'feel' any different while I was on it. I was originally on Tamoxifen but couldn't tolerate it and was pre-menopausal so my onc suggested the Evista. I'd take it again if it was recommended. Good luck!

Thank you Jaybird, I didn't have any trouble while on it, so fingers crossed it will be easy to go off as well.
