I cannot emphasize enough the side effect of pain and fatigue that I experienced while on AIs…the joint pain is impossible…I know these side effects are from the AIs because as soon as I have gone off them, and I mean for one day, I feel like I am 10 years younger.

I quit after 1.5 years due to the terrible bone pain I experienced…I could hardly walk by the time I stopped taking it…it just was not worth it.
