I developed blood clots in my lungs from my reconstruction surgery so absolutely no tamoxifen for me.
@marcia115 did you try an aromatase inhibitor like letrozole, anastrazole, exemestane? Usually post-menopausal women take one of those. Did you try on and not tolerate it? I am still wondering whether that is why you are on Tamoxifen.
I don't know about your cancer case but I would give it more than a week! I think it takes awhile for our bodies to adjust to some of these meds.
Also MY FIRST TIME EVER on a daily medication.
Im taking Anastrozole. I too, at 72, worry about unwanted effects of medications. I’m sensitive even to OTC preparations. I was nervous about it. I have minor obvious side effects but I worry about the unseen side effects like bone health. I decided to schedule a DEXA at one year in ( verses two) to stay on top of it. I’ve introduced mitigation practices of increased calcium through whole foods, D3 and K2 as well as weight bearing .. brisk walking and yoga and some weights. 🌸
