I've been on it for about 3 months now and I can honestly say it has made me moodier, I have hot flashes and my libido waned for a while. I will be off of it in another month and a half since I am having a hyster. They will wait 6 months and then put me on an aromitase inhibitor.
I was scared silly about taking it. But so far it's not so bad.
I took Tamoxifen in my late 30's. I experienced hot flashes, etc. Onc put me on Effexor as my cancer was estrogen positive. My periods got further and further apart and then non-existent. I haven't had one since. I had no problems with uterine thickening. I am now finished with the Tamoxifen and now am on Femara. The side effects aren't quite as bad. Of course, now I guess I'm in menopause and can't sleep at night!!! Of course, now I spend my days with 6 year olds so......that's enough to send you into menopause, a "home", etc. HA HA I have been spending my days with 6 year olds for 10 years so maybe I'm just getting old and cranky! Na, couldn't be that!!!
Good luck and remember it's better than the chemo and you're doing something to combat the ole bc!
