Hello! I have just had lumpectomy, got oncologist appointment to tell me about the radiotherapy, and prescribed Tamoxifen. I already have hot flushes so Tamoxifen is not going to help at all! When would be best to take it? Flushes are at night, so I am going to take my tablet when I go to bed, hoping that it wont cause insomnia?? If I am going to get flushes anyway at night I might as well take this medication then...at east that is my thinking!!! I have no regular support network, I am older and I live alone so I have to be extra careful.......feeling very isolated at the moment .
