Hey Ladies,,,

I am now off of all of the armitose inhibitors.... they all caused by feet and legs to swell badly. I tried all three of the vairations... but after taking them for about 1 1/2 years the swelling just got out of control I lost 4 pounds in one week. Just that much fluid was being retained.. So this week I will start trying to take Tamoxifen... Hopefully it will do the trick...

Take Care...



  • Good luck Susan. I took Tamoxifen for seven years with no serious side effects although I did experience some depression. It has been over 21 years since my first diagnosis so a little depression was a small price to pay in the greater scheme of things. I wish the same (or better) results for you. God bless.

    I've been on Tamoxifen for over a year, because of my bone density troubles. I have very few side effects from occasional hot flash...but, then, I'm an old lady, with very little estrogen anyway....sigh...well, at least I have my testosterone...Look out, guys!!!
