arimidex

Ilsa, I copied and pasted the following from my drug reference link: Potential Drug Interactions You searched for interactions of combinations of the following drugs: Amiodarone Oral, Arimidex, Dilantin, Zoloft. (Caution: not all drug interactions are known or reported in the literature, and new drug interactions are continually being reported.

1.Unfortunately, Prozac, Paxil, and "minimally Zoloft", are belived to interfere with the effectiveness of Tamoxifen. I know it's hard to consider switching from an antidepressant that is working for you, but if you want to go back to Tamoxifen, Lexapro, Celexa, Effexor, and "probably Wellbutrin" could be other choices to try. 2. As you probably already know, Tamoxifen and the aromatase inhibitors work in differerent ways.
My question is, can certain medications elevate my level? I am on Zoloft, Corgard, Aciphex, tamoxifen and foricet. This the first time I have had this test, so I don't know if this has been my level this whole time, or if my level would be high simply because I have had breast cancer. My oncologist is gone until next week and I am trying to get as much info as possible.
Other antidepressants are weaker inhibitors of CYP2D6, such as sertraline (ZOLOFT, escitalopram (LEXAPRO) and citalopram (CELEXA), while still others have little or no effect on CYP2D6 such as venlafaxine (EFFEXOR).
I am taking Effexor XR and it has been a lifesaver for me. I am on Arimidex and was having hot flashes and was depressed after breast cancer treatment. I had been on it before and stopped taking it without any problem. I know everybody is different. It sure helped me!!!
I drink some water and turn over my pillows to cool me head, and after a minute or so I am fine. It is the only symptom of menopause I am having right now, but it is annoying. I am not on hormone replacement. It was offered, and my gyn oncologist assures me it will have no ill effect on my ovarian cancer prognosis, but I am holding off because I am juggling too many side effects from chemo and other meds, don't want to experiment with hormones.
I am a 44 year old breast cancer survivor who has been in medical menopause for 3 years and is currently taking arimidex and receiving monthly lupron injections. It seems like since I've gone through all this that I am much more anxious, in general. The worse part is that I seem to have a low tolerance level for hearing something I don't want to hear, and I've become very impatient.
I have posted here before, but I feel that I must be persistent. I am 29 years old, and have been impotent for about 2 years now. 2 years ago, I was absolutely fine. I could have sex as many times as I wanted to. 3 times a night would be no problem. I woke up with erections, and if I didn't have sex I would masturbate in the morning and before I went to bed. It is a different story now however. No morning wood. No libido. If I am able to get an erection it doesn't last long.
