I am post lumpectomy patient .I have been asked to take anastrozole tablets.i have been taking this for the last 14 months But for the past 2 weeks i have burning sensation while passing urine which i mistook for urinary infection but the tests proved i was wrong and some what bloated upper stomach . otherwise i am hale and healthy i get occasional headache and nausea .
Both of the side effects, the burning sensation and the bloated upper stomach, are known side effects of anastrozole. However, if they continue to bother you, you should contact the doctor who perscribed anastrozole to you and ask him for an alternate drug to take that will not cause the same side effects.
