Hi - I found the Teva brand of Tamoxifen was OK - but there was a supply problem for while and so had to take another brand which gave loads of nasty side effects ie neck pain and leg cramps and I was switched to Arimidex last October which has been much better. Neck pain transfered to ankle pain in the mornings but better than not being able to lift your head.
Hi Paula, so sorry to hear this. On one of the threads it seemed that this does happen, but you can try a different brand. I'm on Accord brand and I've been fine so far (I've just touched my wooden desk!) - about 10 weeks, as I started them a month before my mastectomy, and others on Accord also seemed fine. That's no guarantee of course.
I've just been to the pharmacy with a prescription for Anastrozole and checked they would have Accord brand - they had one pack in and the others will arrive tomorrow, plus they put Accord brand on their database so that I'm ordered them each time now, in case I forget to mention it.
I do hope things improve, but changing to another brand might help. Hope so, Jo x
