Considering quitting Tam after two years
Does anyone have a general idea of how much protection you get from completing two years, premenopausal? I've seen numbers that say you're better protected years down the line by completing 5-7 years, but I have Stage 4 of another kind of cancer, and will be very lucky to get six more years. I know it's a gamble because they're developing better treatments every couple of years, so maybe I could live 10 or 15 years. I'm living with a kind of low level depression on tamoxifen, my thinking is slow and confused, and I really hate the geriourinary issues. Was on an antidepressant for a very short time then developed a bunch of neuro issues (I don't think it was meds, I think it was missed dx of Guilliane Barre), so now neurologist says I can't go back on them or take stimulants because they could worsen symptoms again. Between Tam and the med I take for the other cancer, I am tired, forgetful, unmotivated, unable to organize tasks and thoughts. Looking for ideas, commiseration, or validation that this simple drug can subtly ruin your cognitive function.
