hot flash alert

Holy crap!

I thought that side effects meant something that will happen after a couple pills, not something that happens less than 2 hours later!

I started tamoxifen last night – it’s the drug to suppress estrogen, a once-a-day tablet with the possibility of taking it for up to 5 years.

The first major side effect is hot flashes. And I had one in spades just after I climbed into bed. I sweat like a person who had worked out for 2 hours straight and soaked everything.

And now, I understand why it was recommended to take in the evening or at bedtime.

I can’t imagine functioning at work while experiencing one of these!!!

Oh the things I get to look forward to!!


Yours in hot times,
