Good morning
i am coming to the end of my 5 years on arimidex. 
I have a question for those of you who have completed their course of arimidex. 
Does the side effects go away once you stop taking it. I need some assurance that the hot flushes/night sweats disappear and the weight gain stops. 
Thanks Bev

    Hi @Bevkk firstly congrats and wow! 
    I finished my arimidex after 5 years at the end of October 2020. I’m actually finally noticing a gentle change in my body for the better. The weight is beginning to come off!! Hot flushes well I wasn’t really experiencing them in the true sense over the last couple of years. I just seem to run  hotter than anyone else in my household but not anywhere as bad as I was when on the arimidex. I have chosen to continue on cattapress to keep me a little cooler for the moment (that is probably just a placebo now lol),I do feel more myself if that makes sense. Oh and libido..... probs not. Very happy for you well done💪🏻
