What is Tamoxifen?

 

Tamoxifen is an FDA-approved medicine that treats hormone receptor-positive (hormone-positive) breast cancer.

 

Hormone-positive breast cancer is a type of cancer that treats estrogen or progesterone to grow.

 

It helps to prevent breast cancer in people who are above 35 and have a high risk of suffering from the disease.

 

Since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Tamoxifen in 1998, it has become a widely used breast cancer treatment.

 

Tamoxifen is effective in treating breast cancer that has spread to other parts of body in both women and men.

 

It treats early breast cancer in women who have already been treated with radiation, surgery, or chemotherapy.

 

You can find Tamoxifen in market under different brand names including Nolvadex or Soltamox.

 

This medication can greatly decrease risk of cancer recurrence and invasive cancer.

 

Some people take this drug to reduce risk of developing breast cancer.

 

Tamoxifen for breast cancer helps to stop cancer cells from using estrogen and progesterone to grow and spread.

 

You can save huge on Tamoxifen cost by ordering it from a licensed online pharmacy and grabbing exciting deals & discounts.

 

How does Tamoxifen work in your body?

 

Tamoxifen belongs to a class of medicines called anti-estrogens also called selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs)

 

It blocks effects of estrogen on hormone receptor-positive breast cancer cells by sitting in estrogen receptors on cells.

 

In case, Tamoxifen is in receptor, estrogen does not attach to cancer cells and the cell is not able to receive estrogen’s signals to grow and multiply.

 

You need to know that tamoxifen will never work to treat hormone receptor-negative breast cancer.

 

How long do you need to take Tamoxifen?

 

Most people take tamoxifen dosage for almost five years and sometimes for 10 years. This treatment length will depend on your cancer diagnosis.

 

Your doctor can recommend taking this medicine for five years and then suggest different hormone therapy for several years.
