This is pretty much why I decided on tamoxifen over Arimidex. Didn’t want to fuck up bone density or lipids any more that they already were! I really didn’t want to take anything if I’m honest but E2 got to 168 pmol/L and I was getting a lot of itching in the cheast area which was driving me crazy. Took 20mg daily and am now on 10mg daily because I have lowered my test dose a lot.
I have a couple of questions if you don’t mind.
- Ideally I would like to stop the tamoxifen if possible now I’ve lowered my test dose. Not sure if being on tamoxifen for life is a bad thing? So what would be your thoughts on me stopping?
- When would you normally start to prescribe tamoxifen with your patients? If their E2 gets above a certain level or do you just go off how they feel? Just curious (;
