Stacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answeredWhen taking Arimidex, generic name anastrozole, it's important to avoid becoming pregnant. Tell your doctor immediately if you become pregnant while taking Arimidex and avoid taking Arimidex if you are breastfeeding. It's also important to avoid activities that require quick response time and concentration, until you know how you'll respond to Arimidex. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know your reaction to this drug. Because Arimidex can weaken your bones, it's important to talk to your doctor about regular bone density screening. Depending on the results of your bone density tests, you may want to avoid certain activities that increase the risk of breaking or fracturing your bones.
