Letrozole and hot flashes

I've been on Letrozole for over 6 months for metastatic breast cancer that spread to my bones. I had a complete hysterectomy in 1997 so I was surprised to learn my body fat still produces estrogen which fed my Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer. My second pill sent me into a horrible hot flash. I almost quit taking it but figured out by changing times I took it by advancing one hour each day that when I take it around 7p.m. I don't have hot flashes at night but do have one at 6pm right before time for another dose.

Letrozole Tablet color?

I just received letrozole 2.5 mg tablets (generic for Femara) which are supposed to be yellow but are a mauve color not yellow? They are round shaped with N stamped on 1st side & L on the 2nd side. I am concerned about the color. these pills were produced by Breckenridge co. ## Our listings also say they should be yellow. The color, however, doesn't actually mean anything, so the company may have changed it, but I'd suggest double checking with your pharmacy to be certain. Have you contacted them to ask? ## MY tabs are also peach or a more mauve color, FROM BRECKINRIDGE! I tried to send them a question but only pharmacists and doctors can question them. Very irresponsible of this company to not update their description.

Yellow Dye 5

For the first time I took a tablet called letrozole which is generic for Femara 2.5 mg. It is yellowish in color and I called the manufacturer before taking since i have a pretty serious reaction to yellow dye #5 and they assured me the color was from ferrous oxide not yellow dye. An hour after taking the tablet, I had lip swelling and rash across shoulders and back. Took a benadryl and went to bed. Some difficulty in swallowing for the next few days and a rash that didn't clear for 4 days. Lips still peeling and raw. Because I need to take this tablet to prevent recurrence of breast cancer, I am concerned and ready to try another tab without the yellow color. Wondering if this would be a safe idea. ## Glad the pharmacy and the Oncologist have ordered a new generic for Femera. Hopin...
