1 month into Tamoxifen. Last few days I'm having bad hot flashes and very nauseous all day. I don't want to take them anymore! Will this get easier?

    I have been on it for 5 weeks and the hot flashes continue but I have not been nauseous in about a week now so hoping that is over. I hope and pray it gets better for us both....excuse me while I go take another shower...ugh!

    Yes it will get easier the first couple month is the worst your body is trying to adjust like being pregnant when the hormones are out of whack Tamoxifen peeks between 6-8 months then I found things started to settle down hot flashes less intense mood swings better. I would get a wave like feeling of being overwhelmed totally exhausted nauseous and wanting to cry then the dripping wet hot flashes. After a while I realized if I just calmed myself down it's just the dam pill and those hormones take a deep breath and let it pass. I felt much better. I'd actually tell myself

      Wasn't finished there sorry. Would actually tell myself no need to cry its just a flash it'll pass which gave me control over it. I think it is worse the younger you are as your natural estrogen levels higher so a strong fight to block it. ...

    Yeah the hot flashes are awful . I always make sure I have toast or crackers before I take my tamoxifen and I drink a full bottle of water , the kind of bottled water you get at cosco. It's pure and processed through reverse osmosis. I have not yet experienced nausea after taking it. Might be worth a try!

    I found that taking it with my breakfast stopped the sick feeling. I have been on it for about 9 months and the hot flushes are a little better. Hang in there it will improve
