Stopped taking tamoxifen (with doctor's suggestion) due to servere joint & bone pain, leg cramps, and other numerous side effects. The odds of reoccurance is not that high for DCIS, I am 76 yrs. old and this tamoxifen is even worse than the radiation treatments I had. Leg cramps keep me up at night, very servere and therefore up every hour or so. So tired, it is hard to focus or function during the day. and of course with the other joint & bone, nausea symptoms, life has no quality. Doctor tells me that as lone as you were on tomoxifen, that is how long it takes for all these symptoms to go away. For me, its been a month off now, and still leg pain (cramps) have not let up. I keep dehydrated, eat 1 bannana a day, still no relieve. Will try to find tonic with quinine today. Any more suggestions?????
