Quit Tamoxifen Cold Turkey?
Wondering if there are any thoughts on stopping tamoxifen cold turkey vs. tapering off. Is there any evidence of one being better than the other? I'm at 5 years on tamoxifen, just received results from the Breast Cancer Index that said there is no benefit to continuing anti-hormonals, so I'll probably stop taking it. I haven't had a full conversation with my MO about it yet.
I was pre-menopausal when I started and surely am menopausal by now at 52. I haven't had my period in a few years. Has anyone had breakthrough bleeding after discontinuing tamoxifen? Any other side effects?
Lastly, how long does it take for tamoxifen to completely leave your body?
