      I think I still have chemo brain...2 years out. It is slowly getting better. Did not notice a difference from tamoxifen. I also did not lose any hair from it and do not recall hearing about that as a side effect. My daughter tends to lose her hair a bit when she is stressed. Do you think it could be that?

      I've only been on Tamoxifen for 3 weeks and figured my memory problems were all from chemo brain (chemo ended on May 21st). My hair was long but very thin before chemo and coming back SUPER thick now. I use Nioxin shampoo and treatment for thinning hair and take silica drops for supplements (for strong hair, nails and bones), but do one week on, one week off with the drops.
      Not loving the hot flashes & aches/pains with Tamoxifen. NOT fun at all.

      MIdnight09 I have had the thinning of my hair with all the med's I've been on. My memory loss has also occured with all 4 of them. I have had difficulty with all 4 drugs they gave me..allergic & more problems with infection in my lungs & asthma. have been using the provail shampoo for brackage & it has helped greatly not as much in the drain! Strenghened my hair too! It says on the bottle 97% & it really works ! I had to go off the drugs after a month's time taking it. The doctor said I might have to take monthly shots but I'm afraid to try it.
