It states that is is an incredible cure in some articles and in reading another article it states that cinnamon can be very dangerous if you have had breast cancer.

37 year old female interested in losing weight. I have some phentermine pills left over from before I was diagnosed with stageII breast cancer a year and a half ago. I'm currently taking tamoxifen. Is it safe to take the phentermine?
- I discontinued my tamoxifin treatment for breast cancer last year i now have afib and heart arrithmia's. can this be caused by taking the tamoxifin and is it long term?
I also had to have a complete Hysterectomy with removal of ovaries. The Tamoxifen caused changes in Uterus (pre-Cancer)Now I have Heart Arrhythmias as well as A-fib. I was asked if this could be from the 5 year use of Tamoxifen, or the lack of hormones from hysterectomy. Will it go away with discontinue of Tamoxifen, or is it permanent?

Gote psoriasis after taking tamoxifen
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I am on the drug. It has not been suggested that I should discontinue. I noticed changes to my toenails and fingernails after my course of Chemo had finished. finger nails fell off. Grew back normally. Toenails continued to look slightly thick at cut edge. They also started to curl. Podiatrist advised me how to cut them and use file. I was too vigorous with the file and took off skin. that is when the tinea started. My cholesterol is below 2 which is what the cardiologist wanted as I had a mini stroke.
