@lisman1408, your experience is almost exactly like mine. I have been on various AIs and now on Tamoxifen. I have to continue it until 2023. Like you, i had bad side effects from Anastrozole, Exemestane etc. Tamoxifen has side effects, but more tolerable than the others. I am going to have a HUGE celebration in 2023! Still, I am grateful for the protection of these drugs.

Sparklegram, I was also on Tomoxifin, and overall felt pretty good! Unfortunately, after a week or two of taking it, I broke out in hives! It seems I’m allergic to something in Tomoxifin…. so I’ve settled on Exemestane. It’s not great, but it works. I agree, there are side effects to most of these drugs. I count my blessings and just move on. Thanks for the response. It’s good to hear from you! Sending you best wishes!
