Took Tamox for five years (1996 to 2001). Experienced the weight gain that others have mentioned, but a sedentary lifesytle does not help that situation. I had hot flashes, too (power surgers), but not as bad as MK had. Mainly a problem at night. Of course, it was an added benefit in the winter in Minnesota when I did not need much in the way of covers at night. I was concerned about
blood clots since I have had phebitis in the past, but had no problems in that area at all. I would say my experience on tamoxifen was fairly positive. Good luck. Lauri
