Topic: Bottle 'o Tamoxifen

Forum: Hormonal Therapy - Before, During, and After —

Hormonal therapy medicines can be used to lower the risk of early-stage hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer from coming back, shrink or slow the growth of advanced-stage or metastatic hormone-receptor-positive breast cancers, and lower the risk of developing breast cancer in certain women who are at high risk. They work by lowering the amount of estrogen in the body or by blocking the effect of estrogen on breast cancer cells.

There are several hormonal therapy medicines, including, tamoxifen (Nolvadex, Soltamox), Arimidex (anastrozole), Aromasin (exemestane), and Femara (letrozole).

Hormonal therapy is usually prescribed for multiple years. Common side effects include hot flashes, joint pain, fatigue, and bone thinning.

Note: This is a safe place to share YOUR experience, not to be influenced or influence others. Please contact your doctor about any questions or concerns you may have if you are currently taking hormonal therapy.

Dear All, (and Layne are you there?)

Got my Tamox today and will start in a week. Where are my tamoxi pals? It says weight loss for one of the side effects. Now that's a good thing. Basha

Look into a functional MD. I'm set to meet with one next week. Google to find out what it's about. I think you'll find that may be what you're looking for with regard to bloodwork, etc.

Mine is female and very thorough. They usually do a lot of bloodwork, etc., etc. Vit C infusions. All kinds of options.

Hi ladies! I have been taking the Tamoxifen for about 6 weeks, and so far my only side effect that I notice are some mild hot flashes once in a while. I expected to be miserable, but honestly it's going very well (so far, but know things can change as time goes on)!

Anyone else on tamoxifen after having had a hysterectomy? I had my hyst about 3 months ago and am still exhausted. My iron is back to normal, but can't shake this fatigue and my stamina is bad. I finished up chemo about 1 full year ago, so I suppose it could be lingering effects from that. Just want to have energy again...

My 2 cents on tamoxifen. For me, the hot flashes are the worst of it. Especially because they interrupt my sleep. But they are not severe (my lower back gets a little sweaty and I feel as though I'm inside a car that's been sitting in the sun on a hot afternoon.) They last about 4-5 minutes usually. I occasionally get a little crabby, but not sure if that is due to the tamoxifen, but I still feel like the same person. Also, since my hysterectomy, my hot flashes are more intense and more frequent than when I was on just tamoxifen. Overall, I would say my experience is pretty good.

Kechla---I had a hysterectomy and chose to stay on Tamoxifen. I do pretty good on it and my BS said I'd only get a 1-2% improvement in my reduction risk so he thought the increased SEs weren't worth it. My biggest issue has been the bone and joint pain which I manage with ginger and turmeric. I didn't have hot flashes on Tamoxifen till I had my hysterectomy 2 years into it but again, I manage mine with iCool and a fan. Mine aren't too bad either. Mostly at night and then it's just a clammy thing for a couple of minutes. And with the iCool I usually only get 2-3 a night. I will say that your exhaustion is probably from your surgery...and all the rest all catching up. My dad is a doctor and told me before I started all this that even thought doctors will tell you that you recover within a couple of months, he thinks the exhaustion takes about a year to recover from. His recommendation was to sleep whenever I felt like it and could and just wait it all out. For me things didn't start getting better in the energy department till I started working out regularly. Just walking every day for 30-45 min shook out the cobwebs and made my night time sleep easier by reducing the hot flashes intensity. Once I was sleeping good at night, my days got better. I've just found out that I get no benefit from continuing Tamoxifen for another 5 years so I'll be stopping it in Feb. Can't wait to see how much of a difference there is.....or if there is a difference at all!!

Thanks lala1. That is so helpful! I have my first appointment with my MO nurse since my hysterectomy this week, so I can see what her thoughts are for the tamoxifen as well. Originally, they said they'd switch me to an AI if I had the hysterectomy, but once I had it, said to stay on the tamoxifen. I think they said due to bone health, but I don't quite remember all they said in the hospital...

I have attempted to start an exercise program several times over the past few weeks and it just wipes me out each time. I think I'll start some yoga and try to get back on a regular schedule with that.

I have not had a hysterectomy but am on Tamoxifen. I am just wondering if those feeling exhausted have had your Vitamin D levels checked. Mine were way low and I had 8 weeks of high dosages and now on 2000 mg per day. I was really tired before and now am doing so much better. Just a thought.

Kechla:

I was on 2000 maybe and Vit D level better but not high enough. Went to 5000 and that did the trick. I think that much is not harmful -- but have it checked and see what they say. (In the event it's really low or something.)

Have mercy, I have my 3 mo follow up with my MO scheduled for Dec 29. Have had it set for 3 months. Made holiday plans around that date. You know the drill. Then yesterday they call and want to reschedule for Jan 1 or 2. I asked if we were doing blood work and the girl said “it’s your 3 month check. Yes blood work will certainly be a part of that appointment” I told her that no, he doesn’t want to see me New Years Day for blood work. Nope not changing that one. These two parties are the only two I’m giving myself permission to cut loose at. No way am I going to the doctor the next day! lol. I also explained I had arranged all my travel plans months ago around that appointment so I really couldn’t change it unless we push it to the end of Jan. No, that’s okay. Keep it that day and we will set it for earlier in the day. Ok. That’s fine. But really? 3 months ago you knew the schedule just like I did.

Tonight was a big night for me. I went to my old school and was the MC for their Christmas Music Program. To explain what a big deal this was... I taught at that elementary school for 14 years. I found out at the end of the school year that I was being moved up to middle school. So I haven’t seen these kids since June. When I got there I got mobbed! It was one giant group hug. So before the program started whenever they went to line up, I went to see the kids in the program so that’s the first time they saw me wouldn’t be on stage. Good plan. They were so excited to see me. It made me feel so good. I really do love where I am now, but’s I sure do miss MY kids. (I had them from preK through 5th grade... they will always be mine!) 250 kids IN the program. And 1 girl who Cameron NOT to be in the program, but to see me. Made her mom bring her because she knew I would be there.
