Important Safety Information

Prescription ARIMIDEX is only for postmenopausal women. Do not take ARIMIDEX if you are pregnant because it may harm your unborn child.

In the early breast cancer clinical trial, common side effects seen with ARIMIDEX include hot flashes, joint symptoms, weakness, mood changes, pain, sore throat, nausea and vomiting, depression, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, swelling of the arms/legs, and headache. Fractures (including fractures of the spine, hip, and wrist) occurred more frequently with ARIMIDEX than with tamoxifen (10% vs 7%).

Common side effects seen with ARIMIDEX in advanced breast cancer studies include hot flashes, nausea, decreased energy and weakness, pain, and increased cough. Joint pain and stiffness have also been reported in association with the use of ARIMIDEX.

ARIMIDEX should not be taken with tamoxifen or estrogen-containing therapies.
