Brand swap tamoxifen

Last reply: 10 months ago

Hi all,

I just swapped from nolvadex to tamox brand. I was fine on nolvadex but pharmacist said they cannot get it any more. I'm so sick on tamox and my hair is falling out and I feel so tired. I really want to go back onto Nolvadex. Anyone having similar issues?
