Tamoxifen or Arimidex

Caramia101January 18, 2002

Is anyone else taking either of these? They have both made me ill. The oncologist has told me that there is nothing else available if I cannot take them. (They are estrogen blockers). Just looking for herbs now, or alternative medicine that will work...Thanks.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I've never taken either one. Nor do I have breast cancer so have no need to take either one.

However, there is NO herb or "alternative medicine" that can be used in place of these "anti-estrogens" to prevent/decrease the risk of breast cancer recurrence. Any such claims are bogus.
