Does Arimidex cause elevated ANA?
User rating for this question
I have been on arimidex/anastrozole for 3 years now. After having a bad rash last November, I had a blood test that showed elevated ANA. I have had joint pain and other side effects since starting the arimidex. The rash is gone but doctor wants to investigate the elevated ANA. I really feel fine tho. Would elevated ANA be a result of 3 years on the arimidex?
