Is this normal and how long does it last!
sorry i just saw your question as i have been in bed for a week with non stop migraines. but to your question i know of two people that took it and it does make you tired and depressed. The lady i took care of for years for breast cancer and no one ever checked the rest of her body out and she ended up with brain cancer and died. Why are you taking this and please make sure the doctors check you out properly so the same thing doesn't happen to you!!! I hope this helps some Leron
I was on tamoxifen for 5 years, and yes I was wiped out tired and depressed. I put part of my sadness to loosing both my parents right before this time. I was told all along the way that tiredness wasn't one of the side effects. I still say bull!!! I have now been off it for a year, and still have the tiredness... Just got done with my annual blood work and have NEVER had any issues. Was told by my doctor that I have a high triglyceride count of 180. Both my HDL & LDL are perfect. Now I am being watched for type 2 diabetes, or hypothyroidism... Since taking the medicine I asked them to test my thyroid and they say it always came back ok. Tomorrow I go in for an ultrasound on my thyroid as they feel lumps on it. Geez! Time will tell. Hoping this drug did what it was supposed to do and nothing more. Did I mention that they are finding both of these linked to tamoxifen... Good luck
