kksmom - I've often wondered the same thing. There was a recent study I read about that looked at people taking breaks from an AI and I think it said that with those who were taking a 3 month break every year, their estrogen levels would return to normal in about 6 weeks.
I only take my letrozole every other day, and have religiously for the approx 18 months I've been taking it, but just the other day, I skipped an extra day and I could actually tell a slight difference and so could people around me. Just a day like that makes it so tempting to quit altogether and just take my chances. I too have doubts about switching because for 90% of people it looks like 6 of one, half dozen of the other; like you said, they all do the same thing. As long as we have low estrogen, we will have the awful side effects that come with it.
