I have been taking Tamoxofin for 2 months. I have not experienced hot flashes, but have experienced stiffness in my joints and just recently leg cramps. The nausea I felt at the beginning when taking the drug has subsided.

Comment:
I have been taking Tamoxifen for 6 months following lumpectomy, chemo and radiation for Grade 1 Stage 2 Lobular Carcinoma. Have hot flashes day and night (reduced by using Black Cohosh). Weight gain as well, but dealing with that. Otherwise, no significant negative side effects. Positive - no more menstrual cycles.
