Like with all medicines, this one comes with a long list of potential side effects. Below are some of them.
- Hot flashes (whats new - my special friend for the past 6 months)
- Vaginal dryness or discharge
- Mild nausea
- Weight gain/loss
- Bone pain
- Less Common
- Risk of blood clot in the lungs or the major veins of the legs
- Uterine cancer
- Eye problems
Most of the women I have talked to about Tamoxifen all say they hate it. Hopefully, my side effects will be minimal.
I will be starting this on 1/11/13.
