question for doctor: anastrozole and g.i. side effects?
I have had IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) for 35 years, but mostly very mild and not very problematic since I was in my 20s.  Now, in the past few years, I have g.i. symptoms I hardly ever had before-- heartburn, acid reflux, pain in my small and large intestines, occasional nausea. Diagnostic tests have not revealed a reason for this. But recently I have been wondering--could the g.i. symptoms be a side effect of anastrozole (arimidex)? I have been  taking it for 3 1/2 years, after 1 year on tamoxifen, following lumpectomy, chemo and radiation.
Thanks for any feedback,
Laurie .

The symptoms you're mentioning can all be caused by the medication you are using.

P.S. I'm not a medical doctor, but it's very simple to check out reported effects of medications on many sites. I personally prefer Medscape for that function.
