Round orange pill with FP

I found this pill while cleaning between my couch pillows. I have a picture of it if there is a way to post. The other side of the pill has a line so you can cut equally in half. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

exemestan heartburn

I haven't seen heartburn listed specifically as a side effect, but have been experiencing a lot lately. I have not previously had a problem with this. Also have a lot of tingling in right hand, maybe associated with some disk disintegration that was a problem 15 years ago. ## Hello, Meg! How are you? It has been known to cause various gastro-intestinal issues as side effects, according to the FDA, even ulcers in some rare cases, so heartburn isn't actually surprising. It can also cause some pain and musculoskeletal issues, but it would be best to have that checked out by your doctor to be safe. Is there anything else I can help with?

Is Exemestane made by Alvogen the same quality as Greenstone?

I have taken Exemestane made by Greenstone for two years. Now the pharmacy has switched to Exemestane made by Alvogen. Are they of equal quality and effectiveness? ## Hello, Katie! How are you?

Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, visual disturbances, headache, insomnia and depression. Is there anything else I can help with?

Exemestane side effects

I have been taking Exemestane for 2-1/2 months. My hands are numb and also tingling. The pain with the tingling is so bad. It lasts about two minutes and then just feels numb. Also have hip/lower back pain. Called my doc about the hands and she said go off Exemestne for two weeks and see if it goes away. She thinks I have carpal tunnel. I was on Tamoxifan for one year but changed due to horrible leg cramps. Then put on Anastrozole and stopped after two weeks due to body rash. Now I truly believe I am having reaction to Exemestane. ## Hello, Cc! How are you? I'm very sorry about your health problem and the issues you've been having with the medications. Cancer medications are notorious for causing side effects and most of them do make people miserable. However, the numbness isn...
