Good for you, Rina - you're getting there! The hardest part is over. Now, for tamoxifen - take it the same time every day. I always found it was easiest to take it along with my daily vitamin, with breakfast in the morning. What time you take it won't make any difference with its effectiveness or side effects, so take it whenever is most convenient and logical - at a time you're most likely to remember it. Good luck - PJH
