I really didn't see any side effects while I was on Tamoxifen. Now I'm on the Arimidex so we will see if any side effects pop up with it.

I gained a lot of weight on Tamoxifen. So far since 9-12-12 I have lost 14.2 lbs. It has been a struggle. I just have until June of this year then I hope I am off of it. That is my 5 year mark. Persistent exercise, mostly staying away from white flour and sugar, drinking water, and watching those calories it what is doing it for me.

Thank you all. I've gained weight on Tamoxifen that I'm trying to lose (along with other weight I had on before). Congratulations Nilla, what have you done extra on Tamoxifen? I'm finding weight loss much harder than before (not that it was ever easy).

On March 12, I will have been on Tamoxifen for one year. I have lost 19 pounds thus far, but it has been hard work (not that weight loss is ever anything but hard, right?). I think you almost have to work twice as hard, but it's been worth it. I feel so much better. I'm not giving up!! The doctor said that estrogen is stored in your fat cells. Right now, my estrogen is being blocked but I plan to be at my goal long before I come off the Tamoxifen. I certainly don't want to have breast cancer again, so I'm going to do what it takes to keep it at bay.

Keep smiling!!
