This is not typical: Arimidex (anastrozole) is also known as Anastrozole. It is not known to cause anxiety in patients who use it. Depression and mood changes are more common side effects of the medication. Sometimes a change in mood can seem like it is anxiety related. Let the doctor who prescribes the medication know that this is happening.
