I have been on it about 5 months. I had to wait about 3 months after mastectomy as I needed to level my warfarin first. I have many of the side effects listed... Many of these side effects are also listed with chemotherapy...
I did see this listed as a chemotherapy drug. Tamoxifen is not listed. Use this link: https://www.navigatingcancer.com/library/all/chemotherapy_drugs
I finished my two years on Tamoxifen and now am on anastrozole. Since i started it, I have developed pretty bad sciatica - something I've never had before. I also noticed that the hot flashes are much more intense than with tamoxifen, but less frequent. I have 2 1/2 more years on it then I can get off of all of them. Can't wait!
