    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I have been taking Tamoxifen since July 2010. I have hot flashes mainly at night and joint pain in my legs, which are bearable. Before the start of therapy I had strong and frequent hot flashes, also during the day, which has improved since taking tamoxifen. Weight loss up to now about 5 kg. I have the feeling that my general condition has improved since starting tamoxifen therapy. However, I realized now that my fingernails splinter and my hair is not so good to style. I hope that will happen again in the course of the therapy. Otherwise, I hope the drug works.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    Hot flashes of tamoxifen in the beginning were very strong, but then significantly less. Bones u. Joint pain was bearable, I could with gymnastics, Nordic walking, swimming thermal bath, warm showers, a lot of exercise, well he wear. After taking Femara, the complaints were much stronger, in addition to thinner hair, inflammation of the mouth have increased, dry eyes. Hot flashes have gotten better, but now I’m tired faster after physical work. My bones-u. Joint pain is especially severe during rest and nocturnal awakenings. At the joint approaches I have pressure pain, can not wring out very well wipes, can not clean well, had a lumbar spine surgery after herniated disc 4 years ago. Will that get better after stopping taking Femara? What else can I do to make it more bearable except taking Diclofenac 75, which will help me well but not so often? I have to last another two years.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I think I have everything there is to side effects. Hizblasungen but the finest. I have gained about 25 kg, water accumulation spread over the whole body, extreme in the hands and legs. Shortness of breath is also nothing extraordinary not only under stress. Some of my joints hurt all day. At 49, I feel like an old woman. Even my eyes have changed / worsened and burn constantly. Sleep in one piece, again a whole night, would be great, but not more. Add to that fatigue and fatigue. The meantime extreme hair loss has improved a bit, but the hair is brittle and dull. Fragile are my fingernails. So I think I could go on. If I was not that stubborn, I’d have dropped that stuff long ago.

    Tamoxifen for Breast cancer

    I suffer from hot flashes, sleep disorders, and thin hair. The concentration also decreased. I came or feel like I’m suffering from dementia. I can not remember things I did about 2 days ago. Also, I have lost my sexual needs that I had before. Conclusion: Tamoxifen has totally changed my life. I am no longer the woman I was before. My gynecologist says that these are the normal side effects, but she does not have to experience it. I find it sad that I have to endure these side effects and decided to stop taking the tablets on a regular basis. For who wants to live permanently under these hot flashes? ….
