Tamoxifen or Arimidex

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.

RE: Tamoxifen or Arimidex

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.
