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.

Never heard of any, have looked up the prescribing information and none is mentioned. This medication is not tapered, it is just stopped when it is not needed or is causing problems.
