I wish these articles told the whole story. Tamoxifen can prevent the return of one kind of breast cancer, but it is a powerful drug with powerful side effects along with big benefits.

In spite of the big benefits I simply could not tolerate it. 50% of women go off aromatase inhibitors before the five years are up for the same reason.

I wish I had been told the truth. I don't think it would have changed anything, but I would have felt treated with respect instead of trying to hide the negatives from me.

Some people tolerate them well. I'm one of them that did not -- not AI's, and Tamoxifen was even worse.

Ask lots of questions and DEFINITELY give them a try. If you're having a hard time with them, it may mean more medications to deal with the side effects, but they really are life-saving.

But even with that, I simply could not tolerate them. I'm not everyone, but I do wish both sides of the story was told honestly.

I got my Femara (generic) from Northwestern Pharmacy in Vancouver, and they were terrific as well -- and $89 a month instead of $389 a month in the US.
