Greetings: I am 52 and into my third year of menopause. After using the Combi Patch for almost 16 months I reluctantly decided to stop medicating because of too many side affects. About five months ago I began to have heavy headaches when changing the patch the day after along with IBS worsening when patch was applied. About two weeks after stopping I noticed I am extremely dizzy, moody and very emotional. The dizzy stuff is the worst part. Could the dizzy spells be a withdrawal symptom? If so, how long does all these symptoms last? Thanks for any advice you can give...
I've been on Tamoxifen for 4 1/2 years. I am 69 years old and my hearing has gotten so bad that I sometimes don't even hear the phone ring in the adjacent room.

I have seen posts on other sites about the possibility of insurance coverage if it can be shown that the drug caused my hearing loss. Does anyone have experience with such a claim?

Hi, I'm three years out from my diagnosis of invasive ductile carcinoma. I was just diagnosed with central apnea. I am in the researching to see if any of my cancer treatments could be the cause of this new problem.
I am 61. I was on tamoxifen for 4 1/2 years (DCIS) and I have been diagnosed with bilateral AVS. It may be a coincidence, but since I have stopped taking the medication, the pain has somewhat subsided. I did do 3 weeks of acupuncture, Chinese warming herbs, and hot pool PT. Not sure if it ...
