Hi, I'm new to this forum too, I've been on Tamoxifen for about 18 months and never seem to be given the same brand twice. Interesting to hear that the Mylan one has been discontinued 'cos I seemed most OK with that one. I really don't get on with the Wockhardt one, I seem to get more and worse hot flushes/night sweats particularly in the evening. I've got the Relon Chem one at the moment which is OK. I've kept a note of the fillers of the different brands so it was interesting to see what was in the TEVA ones, my oncologist said most people got on OK with those but they've never had that brand at the chemist when I've picked up my prescription. For anyone who is interested, the Actavis ones (ingredients mentioned by someone earlier) have the same extra ingredients as the Relon Chem ones. The Genesis ones are almost the same but have 'povidone 25' rather than 'povidone' - could be the same thing?? Mylan - mannitol, maize starch, croscarmellose sodium and magnesium stearate. Wockhardt - lactose, maize starch, pregelatinised maize starch, magnesium stearate, methylhydroxypropylcellulose, propylene glycol, Opaspray white (E171 and E464) Tilomed - lactose, microcrystalline cellulose, carmellose sodium, povidone, magnesium stearate, potable water. I'm always interested to hear of any other brands and what's in them, just in case I'm offered them next time, it's all very well me saying I don't want the Wockhardt ones but if another brand has the same fillers then I'd want to avoid that one too.
