Tamoxifen and fatigue

I’ve been taking Tamoxifen since August and side effects have come and gone throughout this time, but at the moment I’m suffering from debilitating fatigue to the point where I can’t do my job properly and I’m struggling to make it through a working week. I’ve had blood tests done and they were all normal. My doctor has suggested he signs me off for a while but obviously that isn’t going to be a long term solution. Any advice, ladies? x



I’ve been taking tamoxifen since January, then had radiotherapy in February. I can totally sympathize with you.  I have been exhausted but I had blood tests for anemia and asked for a folate test.  This did show I was deficient and I was given 4 months of folic acid.  Just wondered if you had this blood test?  As folate isn’t always routine so my nurse said.  I am still struggling but hoping this will sort it for me.

Hope you get some answers soon
