I was wandering are there any ladies out there taking tamoxifen and having insomnia? I cannot

rest and wake up during the night cannot get back to sleep. If anyone knows is this a side

effect. Thanks in advance.

Hi Annoula, 

I have the same problem...not sleeping or waking up in the middle of the night not able to fall asleep again...I'm on tamoxifen since February and I'm pretty sure this is why...especially when I have these "hot flashes" the situation is horrible.
