Hi There What Helps For These Hot Flashes!?😩😰
A MyBCTeam Member asked a question 💭

I take Tamoxifen(5yr) and Lupron injections monthly for a year.
My oncologist just prescribed Venlafaxine 37.5 mg and I have taken one and felt soooo weird.

A MyBCTeam Member

I have a bit less hot flashes on Zoladex than Lupron. My doctor suggested the rx Oxybutynin for the hot flashes and it worked like a charm.

Anyone Experience Muscle Fatigue/weakness With Taxotere That Persisted Over A Month Afterwards?
A MyBCTeam Member asked a question 💭

I completed 4 rounds of Taxotere and Cytoxan over a month ago. After round 3, my leg muscles got weak and fatigued, and this is the only side effect that has still not improved. In fact think it’s worsening. Doc suggested magnesium supplements which haven’t worked yet. (Only been 4 days)

A MyBCTeam Member

I experienced pain and weakness but it did go away eventually but it took time. I found that walking actually helped a lot. I hope you start feeling better soon.
