Hi all. I posted about a week ago the concerns about quality of life on Arimidex. I went to my oncologist today and he took me off of it stating that he's had 'a lot of complaints about the side effects being worse than the disease itself'. He's put me on Tamoxifen starting today. Can anyone tell me their experiences with this drug? The Arimidex was awful. I hurt all the time, was exhausted to the point of being sick to my stomach, had difficulty walking, pain in joints, muscles, etc. I really want to be able to be a better 'me' as I'm working full time again and the Arimidex was interfering with my ability to function. Will Tamoxifen be better??
