Tamoxifen

Hi, I'm alliet

I am on Tamoxifen now after breast cancer surgery, wondering what side effects other women on it are having ? I have noticed fatigue joint pain texture of hair
different. I have had a lot of bone loss & getting infusions every 6 mo for it.
Are blood clots a concern being on Tamoxifen ?
Would love input.

I have been taking Tamoxifen now for 60 days. My only side effect is hot flashes.

Do they hot flashes / night sweats go away? Or is this something I need to deal with for 5 years? :(

Hi, I'm JohnDavid

I asked my wife who had 5 years of Tamoxifen, followed by years of Evista. I’m sorry to say her hot flashes did not go away. I sympathize, since my prostate cancer treatment results in my having hot flashes every 1 to 2 hours day and night. I’ve purchased neck bands that are cooling for day time use. I’m trying to find something for use at night to help stay cool.
