What are the common risk factors for taking tamoxifen?

Side effects? The most experienced side effects of all hormonal therapy are menopausal symptoms (ie. Hot flashes, etc). There is a small increased risk of blood clots similar to hormone replacement therapy, in women with an intact uterus, there can be irreg bleeding and thickening of the uterine wall. If ignored this can rarely progress to uterine cancer that can be cured with a hysterectomy.
See below. You have to be careful if you smoke, have a history of blood clots or a family history of uterine cancer, besides other.
