Re: Switching from letrozole and zoladex to tamoxifen
Hi @Sue C Thank you for your post. Sorry that you haven't had a reply yet, i'm sure one of our Forum members will be along shortly to continue the conversation.
In the meantime, you might be interested in our someone like me services - the Someone Like Me phone service can put you in touch with a volunteer who can support you by telephone. You’ll speak to someone who’s had a similar experience to you, who has finished their treatment and has been trained to help. We also have a Someone Like Me email service where a volunteer will support you by email correspondence.
I've been on letrozole and zoladex for over 3 years now, and because of some of the side effects that it is giving me, ie, raised blood pressure and cholesterol, the oncologist suggested switching to tamoxifen. This was originally dismissed because of a large fibroid that i have. But she didn't seem concerned about that. She also said that in recent years, there has been more success by switching between drugs over the years rather than staying on the same one.
