Re: Tamoxifen/ weight gain

Am afraid I haven't got miracle advice, as I have gained some weight and really struggle to lose it. Exercise, as in walks, helps maintain. 1200 calories is miserable , I would just watch what you eat and allow treats. You have been so much to get there, it's sad you have to rob yourself of nice things. I view tamoxifen as my life saver so I am learning to accept the side effects and consequences of it more, hate my weight but glad to be alive. I feel your pain, have been there and decided to accept some things I can't change. Just a thought..have you tried changing brands of tamoxifen? My se's were much worse on one brand than another, good luck x
