General Information

Nolvadex reduces the incidence of breast cancer in women at high risk for breast cancer.

Nolvadex is effective in the treatment of metastatic breast cancer in women and men. In premenopausal women with metastatic breast cancer, Nolvadex is an alternative to oophorectomy or ovarian irradiation. Available evidence indicates that patients whose tumors are estrogen receptor positive are more likely to benefit from Nolvadex therapy. Adjuvant Treatment of Breast Cancer: Nolvadex is indicated for the treatment of node-positive breast cancer in postmenopausal women following total mastectomy or segmental mastectomy, axillary dissection, and breast irradiation. In some NOLVADEX adjuvant studies, most of the benefit to date has been in the subgroup with 4 or more positive axillary nodes. Nolvadex is indicated for the treatment of axillary node-negative breast cancer in women following total mastectomy or segmental mastectomy, axillary dissection, and breast irradiation. Data are insufficient to predict which women are most likely to benefit and to determine if Nolvadex provides any benefit in women with tumors less than 1 cm. Nolvadex reduces the occurrence of contralateral breast cancer in patients receiving adjuvant Nolvadex therapy for breast cancer.

Indications

Nolvadex is used for treating breast cancer that has spread to other sites in the body. It is also used along with other medicines to treat other types of breast cancer. It is used in women who are at high risk for breast cancer and in women with DCIS (after surgery and radiation) to decrease the risk of developing breast cancer. Nolvadex is an antiestrogen. It works by blocking the effect of estrogen on certain tumors. This may prevent the growth of tumors that are activated by estrogen.

What other drugs will affect tamoxifen?

Many drugs can interact with tamoxifen, and some drugs should not be used together. This includes prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Not all possible interactions are listed in this medication guide. Tell your doctor about all medicines you use, and those you start or stop using during your treatment with tamoxifen. Give a list of all your medicines to any healthcare provider who treats you.

Further information

Remember, keep this and all other medicines out of the reach of children, never share your medicines with others, and use tamoxifen only for the indication prescribed.

 Always consult your healthcare provider to ensure the information displayed on this page applies to your personal circumstances.

Additional Information

Women taking or having previously taken Nolvadex should be instructed to seek prompt medical attention for new breast lumps, vaginal bleeding, gynecologic symptoms (menstrual irregularities, changes in vaginal discharge, or pelvic pain or pressure), symptoms of leg swelling or tenderness, unexplained shortness of breath, or changes in vision. Women should inform all care providers, regardless of the reason for evaluation, that they take Nolvadex. Women taking Nolvadex to reduce the incidence of breast cancer should have a breast examination, a mammogram, and a gynecologic examination prior to the initiation of therapy. These studies should be repeated at regular intervals while on therapy, in keeping with good medical practice.

Women taking Nolvadex as adjuvant breast cancer therapy should follow the same monitoring procedures as for women taking Nolvadex for the reduction in the incidence of breast cancer. Women taking Nolvadex as treatment for metastatic breast cancer should review this monitoring plan with their care provider and select the appropriate modalities and schedule of evaluation
