Has anyone experienced bruising while on Tamoxifen? If so, what did your physician recommend? Did you have to discontinue it?
My doctor puts everyone on baby aspirin with it, but I had a friend who’s doctor said regular strength aspirin. She bruised easily and because she worked in construction, the doctor moved her to anastrazole with no aspirin. Are you on aspirin with it? Could this be responsible for the bruising?

No, the doctor said no aspirin. Not sure why as I thought a baby aspirin would help prevent blood clots.
Hmmm. I would definitely check in with my doctor about that bruising. Better to check and have it be nothing than, than not check and have something serious develop.
After being on Tamoxifen with low dose aspirin for about a year, I was bruising very easily. My Dr moved me to low dose aspirin only twice a week and that made a big difference.
I have been on Tamoxifen for almost 8 years now. I do not take any aspirin nor any other prescription drugs. I have noticed that I bruise easier on my hands or forearms that I use to. Not sure if it is age related. I will be 70 in December. The bruising is very superficial and seems to clear quickly.
