I've been taking tamoxifen for 2 1/2 months and have been gaining weight. Have others experienced this problem while on tamoxifen?

    I'm on tamox,
    have been for a few years.I have definitely gained weight since my treatments were over-I say this half jokingly,it would be nice to think that part of it is because of the tamox and not all because of me!

    I was on Tamoxifen for 9
    I was on Tamoxifen for 9 months and did not gain weight. I gained 20 pounds while on chemo tho. I was on Aromasin for 2 1/2 years and didn't gain on it either. At one point I started exercising and did lose 10 pounds.
