If a person stops taking femara (letrozole) cold turkey, what are the withdrawal symptoms?

Few: Femara (letrozole) blocks the formation of estrogen. You will therefore start remaking this hormone. You actually will have a decrease in the effects of the Femara (letrozole) which are joint pain, hot flashes, fatigue and generalized dryness. Most of these will disappear and the increased new estrogen will make you feel better.

You may: Going to nothing may cause some withdrawal, but it may be mild and tolerable, and within a week should mostly resolve. Expect fatigue, mild insomnia, loose bowel. Can take some immodium. Lots of fluids if having more symptoms or difficulty talk to your doctor.

What is the best thing to put on your skin to stop it from peeling and to get the redness out from a sunburn?
3 doctor answers • 7 doctors weighed in

Nothing: You lose the top layer of your skin every 7 days anyway and with sunburn the damaged skin has to come off. The redness has to heal over time. You can soothe the skin and maybe speed it up by a day or two by applying moisturising lotion containing aloe vera and avoiding sun exposure till it is healed.

How to get rid of acne? I'm 20 years old and still get acne how do I stop it?

Find reason: Sometimes acne comes on its own and sometimes it is part of a hormonal disorder. It is important to see a reproductive endocrinologist to see if there is a specific reason for the acne. Preventing acne is much easier that treating it once it is out of control. This is a very common problem.
