    Take Tamoxifen for one and a quarter years, in the first year very good tolerability (no weight gain!). Side effects now set in: previously unknown concentration disorders, sometimes diminishing memory (I am only 48 and very active). No hot flashes, but a much stronger sense of cold, actually freezing constantly. All in all, however, these side effects are so far to tolerate, I think.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I take Tamoxifen 20mg are January, so only 6 months. In the beginning there were no side effects. After about 2 months, I got a push under the true costal arch. The liver values were ok and also when pressing by the doctor nothing conspicuous. Since the pressing did not go away I researched on the Internet and found that other women were like that. One recommended milk thistle extract as this helps the liver to detoxify. I started to take these and now the pressure is gone. For over a week now and then I now have a slight dizziness, from time to time to have the feeling of cotton in my head and I also find slight memory difficulties. If it stays with the symptoms udn not get any more, I can live with it.

    Side effects: Memory problems; Dizziness

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    After my breast surgery, I was prescribed tamoxifen, the drug should take 5 years. After a short time I got to the hot flashes, water retention in the legs and stomach. Pain in the joints. Memory disorders and increased RR values. I discontinued the medication after 3 months. Every 3 months in the oncologist, blood tests are great. Diet changed, feel fit and slim through metabolic power. Life energy great, like never before. Sports and working is really fun.
