Hi Beth,

The 2D6 is a blood test they do to see if the Tamoxifen is metabolizing in your body.  I had it done last month because I don't have a lot of side effects from the Tamoxifen.  The test showed that I was metabolizing it just fine.  It really put my mind at ease so I can continue taking it for 3 more years.  My insurance paid for the entire cost too.
