    I have been using Nolvadex for the last 12 months and have severe side effects - dry mouth - hot flashes - lower back pain and joint pains - also forgetfullness and dizziness. Do you know of any other medication as an alternative.

    Following a lumpectomy, chemo and radiation I took Tamoxofen for just over a year. The hot flashes were pretty miserable, but the bone and joint pain along with memory loss and extreme fatigue made me talk to my MD about quality of life issues. The side effects of the drugs made me decide to quit taking it.

    Comment from: Ruth, 65-74 on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: January 26

    I had my 1st radical mastetomy (2+ nodes) & chemo in 1993, & 5 yr of tamoxifen. I had contralateral breast cancer about 12 yr after ending 5 yr of tamoxifen. Again had surgery & chemo & am in my 5th yr of tamoxifen (have some neuropathy now & had superficial thrombosis). My md advises continuing tamoxien beyond 5 yr. Tamoxifen saved my life and I feel totally healthy, except that I now have neuropathy, hair thinning & recently had superficial thrombophlebitis. I have decided that since the benefit of tamoxifen lasts at least 10 yr that at age 75 the risks of continuing tamoxifen beyond 5 yr outweigh any possible benefit. When 12 yrs roles around again, I will be 87 yr.
