Sometimes another brand of the drug has improved symptoms for some members in the past. I hope you find some improvement in your symptoms. Certainly discuss it with your medical team.

Feeling hot all the time, especially at night.
I also got a thickened lining of the uterine wall but that was easily fixed with a D & C which was only day surgery and wasn't a big deal so if you do get any spotting then you need to speak up. Apart from that I did ok but I was only on it for around 3 years I think before changing to Femara.
Well done Jane, you made it! The weeping blisters are a nuisance but heal quickly. I had 25 sessions and it was with the last few sessions that my skin broke down a little even though I had been applying sorbolene three times a day. The nurse gave me solugel to coat my burns and blisters and non stick mepilex dressings to apply which were really good. The tiredness is like nothing I'd experienced before. I used to fall asleep mid sentence sometimes! Make sure you rest when you can. It takes a while for you to gain back stamina. Two months after completing my rads I did a bc gym rehab program through the hospital which I can't recommend enough. I'm not a gym junkie, but the program really made me feel good, physically and emotionally. I can't help with your tamoxifen queries as I'm on letrazole, but I'm sure there are others here who may be able to help.
Hugs to you, Jane. You're a champion.

My next step is Tamoxifen.. I am supposed to start in about 3 weeks but I am concerned of the side effects. Any thoughts??
