    There are several. I have experienced increased hot flashes. I say increased because I had them before my diagnosis.

    I've been on tamoxifen since October and have had no side effects at all. I've even lost a little weight :) so it's not a sure fire thing that you'll get any. Good luck!

    Lisa I hope you don't get any. My flashes got worse. I'm taking Effexor now & they are gone. I wasn't sleeping so I started taking it the morning. Much better. Take with food if it upsets your stomach. I had some aches, pains, & felt kinda tired. In time, that went away. Also had leg cramps one night. Prayers to you.
