    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.

    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

    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.
