    Hi Sue - Probably the biggest side effect of stoppng tamoxifen is simply not having to remember to take it each day, and getting a break by not having to buy it anymore! Truthfully, the only side effect of going off tamoxifen that I've heard about is gradually shedding a couple of the possible side effects you may have had - namely, weight gain, and depression. If you've experienced either of those, you should start to get some relief within weeks after stopping tamoxifen. Good luck - PJH
