Letrozole, an aromatase inhibitor, is commonly used to treat hormone-responsive breast cancer, but produces troubling side effects. Can CAM relieve the side effects associated with its use?
Aromatase inhibitors are antiestrogen drugs frequently used to treat breast cancer. Unfortunately, they can cause significant joint pain. A recent study of acupuncture for joint pain caused by these drugs was basically negative, but the authors did their best to spin it as positive. Same as it ever was for acupuncture studies.
