How does this medication work? What will it do for me?

Tamoxifen 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.

Tamoxifen 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.

Nolvadex Overview

Nolvadex is a prescription medication used to treat breast cancer and lower the chance of developing breast cancer. Certain types of breast cancers need estrogen to grow.

This medication comes in a tablet and is usually taken once or twice a day.Common side effects of Nolvadex include hot flashes and vaginal discharge.

Actual Nolvadex Side Effects:

While the above are of no true concern, there are a few actual yet only possible Nolvadex side effects, and the first worthy of mention is a reduction in cognitive abilities, but this is something that is almost strictly a breast cancer patient concern due to the necessary long-term use of the SERM. Some have even shown to have a reduction in libido with long-term use; this is somewhat ironic since the SERM increases testosterone levels via LH and FSH stimulation; however, we’re once again referring to extremely long-term use. The final concern with long-term use is endometrial cancer; some studies have shown breast cancer patients who have used the SERM for five or more years may open the door to endometrial cancer; however, there’s no evidence in-regard to short-term use, and as this is a uterus issue it is not a concern for men.
