LCIS: should I take Tamoxifen?
Does anyone else who is taking Tamoxifen have loss of appetite as a side effect? What are some of your other side effects?
Jump to this post
My worst side effect is hot flashes, throughout the day and night. I lost my appetite during radiation (Sept 2018), did not regain it while on Arimedex for a short while, still don’t have much appetite, but can’t say for sure that it is the Tamoxifen at this point. Fatigue and low energy are also side effects, although not as bad as with the Arimedex.
