tamoxifen

I had DCIS  and got surgery and radiation. Doctor gave me an option to take tamoxifen. I would like to know the percentage of blood clots for tamoxifen side effect and where I can find this data?  Thanks.

you can search "side effects for Chemotherapy Drugs" and Tamoxifen would be on the list. I believe the best site is . I don't know where you might find percentages for one specific side effect though but I believe your Oncologist would have the most information regarding these stats. There are so many side effects that are usually mentioned I rarely hear of anyone discussing blood clots.  Regards ....
