Does anyone struggle with side effects of tamoxifen?

      Per my testimony: I was on Letrozole for 1 1/2 months and was very drug sensitive to it and had to stop. Letrozole Aromatase Hormone Inhibitor was far too detrimental to my cardiopulmonary limitations amongst other extremely harsh side effects. We all must chose can our bodies tolerate these powerful drugs? Do the benefits of taking the hormone therapy of 3-5% less chance of cancer reoccurrence out weigh the detrimental full body effects? I hasten to add if we chose not to take these drugs make sure you get a bi-annual MRI to spot any small cell cancers that may have returned. Side Effects impact on cardio-sensitive individuals: Extreme exhaustion A-fibrillation 3 Nausea Muscular-joint pain Higher lipid count Raised out of controlled range Blood Glucose A-1C levels previously balanced Extremely wide ranging high to low BP swings. Diastolic plunged many times to under 50 causing dizziness just shy of unconsciousness Angina frequency increased to daily and grew more intense in pain BUN and Creatinine Levels now ranging high off normal. Tried Taxoxifen but this will not work out either apparently. Was on a 30 Day Trial. Stopping yesterday, June 7 at Day 15. Developed extreme neuropathy of feet spreading into legs to knees.

      I didn't really, or at least they were pretty mild... remember that sometimes, adjusting the dosage or trying different medications can help with some of the symptoms. and maybe activities like exercise, a healthy diet may also help. don't hesitate to reach out if you need someone to talk to......

      Definitely! I experienced hot flashes, mood swings, or weight gain, among other things.

      I have been on tamoxifen for 2 years now. I don't sleep well, have gained over a stone in weight, flushes are savage throughout the day and during night. It's taking its toll on me now
