Tamoxifen use after 5 years

Posted by Julie @juliesteward, Jul 17, 2017

Any advice on using tamoxifen after five years when you’re not post-menopausal and in “low risk of recurrence” category?

Hi Julie,
Welcome to Connect. I’d like to introduce you to a few members who have taken tamoxifen. Please meet @kat9606 @hereigoagain @conny51 @tula and @elliemac to name a few.

Julie, have you taken tamoxifen for 5 years already and are asking about the effectiveness in reducing recurrence by taking it longer?
