Comments from related studies:
From this study (9 months ago):
Have been on tamoxifen only 1 week, taken at night and have been experiencing severe dry mouth (it seems) about a hour after taking. It seems my body has become very sore and tired upon getting up in the mornings since beginning the tamoxifen.
