oncologist told me to stop tamoxifen after 5 years, as my onco type test said my reocurrence is minimal. Has anyone stopped taking tamoxifen. Did you do it gradually, or cold turkey? Side effects?

    I would discuss the best way to go off of it with your Oncologist. Some medications they recommend weaning yourself off slowly but that may not be the case with Tamoxifen.
