Tamoxifen
I too found myself nuts on tamoxifen with terrible anxiety. Finally found a drug that helped without interfering and it is busporine. It has saved me. I also opted for totally hysterectomy. That too has helped my craziness and anxiety. However the hot flashes are driving me crazy so I'm trying Peridin-c. Too soon to know if it will help with the sweats or not. But ask you doctor about Busporine for the anxiety.
