We recommended Opurest merino wool bedding to a customer taking Tamoxifen, who was struggling to get a good night's sleep. She was delighted with the results:

"After recovering from breast cancer and taking the drug Tamoxifen, I was suffering from night sweats and lack of sleep.  I knew  I needed to do something and after consultation with Opurest they recommended the Opurest mattress and Merino wool bedding. I can honestly say I have never slept so well; no more night sweats, pure comfort to make me feel refreshed and ready for the day. I also had back pain which has now gone too. You cannot put a price on a good night's sleep, I thoroughly recommend their products"

How does Merino wool bedding offer relief to people taking Tamoxifen

Tamoxifen can increase your body temperature resulting in uncomfortable night sweats and hot flushes, leading to discomfort and disturbed sleep. 

Merino wool bedding breathes, and can also absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture and still feel dry.

Maintaining your body at your ideal temperature in natural dry conditions, all night long, reduces uncomfortable night sweats, offering a welcome relief from the side effects of taking Tamoxifen.

The merino wool sleep survey we conducted demonstrated how sleeping in merino wool offers many benefits. Helping to regulate body temperature is just one of them.

Those surveyed were asked to consider their overall sleep and comfort.
