Product Description

Brand Name: Nolvadex

Generic Name: Tamoxifen

Nolvadex Tablet is a nonsteroidal agent which is used in both men and women to treat breast cancer. It is also used in women to prevent breast cancer. This medicine is not recommended for use in pregnant women. It is advised that you discuss all the risks and benefits with your doctor before taking this medicine.

Nolvadex belongs to the group of cancer-fighting medications known as antineoplastics, and specifically to the type of antineoplastics known as antiestrogens. It is used in combination with other medications to treat early breast cancer.

Nolvadex fights certain types of breast cancer, called hormone responsive or estrogen receptor positive breast cancer, by blocking the effects of the hormone estrogen in the body. This prevents the growth of the types of breast cancer cells that require estrogen for growth and survival. It is also used to treat breast cancer that is advanced or has spread to other parts of the body.

The recommended dose of Nolvadex is 20 mg to 40 mg daily taken in 1 dose or in 2 divided doses. It may be taken with or without food. For the treatment of early breast cancer, the recommended duration of treatment is 5 years.

Nolvadex sometimes causes nausea, but it is important to keep taking the medication even if you begin to feel ill, unless otherwise directed by the doctor. Do not stop taking tamoxifen unless you discuss it with your doctor first.
