Dear Sue, I am 58 years old with normal weight and I have been on Tamoxifen for about 18 months. The side effects knocked me a bit initially - with joint pains and weight gain. I gained about 4,5kg in 2 months. I tackled this by increasing my physical activity to 1 hour per day and removing all sugar and glucose from my diet. I have regained my normal wieght and I have managed to clear all my joint pains. I feel very well and my energy levels are good too. I am still slighty hot at night which seems to be related to how many coffees I have had during the day.. Wine also adds to the hot flushes and I have tried to cut down on my wine consumption. I hope that this is helpful..
