Re: Does the brand make any difference

Thanks for your answers.
APS is the one which gives me really bad hot flushes at night time. I wake up absolutely drenched.
I will try with my local chemist to see.

Re: Does the brand make any difference

Hiya
I noticed different side effects with different brands so asked the pharmacist if I could stick to one brand. I now only have APS brand and can cope with the hot flushes etc. Lloyds pharmacy refused to guarantee only one brand so I searched out a pharmacy that obliged and even commented that they were used to ladies with this problem
Take care

Re: Does the brand make any difference

Hi I have been on Tamox since may last year and have had at least three different brands. My last box i picked up from chemists had two brands in the same box???? so i am hoping that it does not make any difference as well. Hope this helps you.

Does the brand make any difference

I have been on Tamoxifen since August; as I get a prescription every two months, I am on my fourth lot.
Until now, I was always given the same brand. (sorry can't remember the name, the box was white and purple?)
I started a new box ten days ago and noticed that my hot flushes were greatly diminished. I do not wake up drenched at night anylonger.
Is it a coincidence, or has this got to do with the brand?
Anyone with the same experience.
If it is, can I ask my pharmacist to keep delivering the CP Pharmaceutical box every time?
