    I've been on since April. Mild hot flashes just started. Gave me insomnia for 2 months. Stopped my period initially, but now is back. Everyone sounds basically the same.

    I started taking it in August so far I only have hot flashes and headaches. But I've had the hot flashes with chemo too! Not bad at all! Good luck ;)

    I've been on Tamoxifen since August and I'm getting hot flashes but I also started having them with the chemo so it wasn't a new development. I've had some issue with leg cramps but it's pretty mild. Other than that I haven't had any problems. Good luck to you.

    One of the reasons I had a bilateral mastectomy was to avoid taking tamoxifen and reduce reoccurrance rate.
