Is femara (letrozole) ever decreased to 3 years after completing chemo and radiation, instead of 5 years?
Rarely: Femara (letrozole) causes bad side effects for many women. And we've learned that many women stop taking it without telling their doctor.

I give medication for hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and bone/joint pain. Hang in there! ...Read more
