I was put on Tamox. in January and besides hot flashes have had no problems until this summer. I have had migraines for almost 30 years and take medicine for them. This summer they just got so bad and so often that I called my onc. 9 days straight with no end in sight. I went off the Tamoxifen for about 4 days. When they still didn't go away I went back on it. I had about two good weeks after that where they stopped for the most part. My onc. thought it might be a sinus infection and I had an mri and saw a neurologist. Nothing on mri. Then they started again and lasted for a month I stopped tamox. again the end of August and have felt "normal" again. Now the onc. wants me back on tamox. and the neurologist is putting me on topimax to help the headaches. I have never had a problem taking medicine but I have to say that I am very apprehensive about taking this again. Anyone else have problems with migraines and tamoxifen? What helped?
