What is Nolvadex used for?
Nolvadex is a prescription medication that is used to treat and reduce the risk of certain types of breast cancer in men and women. It is used to treat metastatic breast cancer, or cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. Nolvadex is also used to lower the chance of breast cancer in high-risk women.
You can buy Nolvadex online at My Drug Center. We have the Nolvadex generic, called Tamoxifen, available for purchase as well.
How does Nolvadex work?
Nolvadex is an oral tablet containing the active ingredient Tamoxifen, which belongs to a group of drugs called antiestrogens. The Tamoxifen dose in this medication works by blocking the effects of the hormone called estrogen in the body. Estrogen may cause the growth of some types of breast tumors, but this medication interferes by blocking the growth of tumors that respond to estrogen.
Before taking Nolvadex or the Tamoxifen generic, read all the instructions and paper work that given to you by your pharmacist. Take your Nolvadex dosage orally once a day. Make sure you take it at the same time each day to create a routine for yourself and to ensure an even spread of the Tamoxifen dosage in your system. This medication should be taken on a regular basis to have optimal results. It should be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not change or increase your dose.
The presrcibed Nolvadex or Tamoxifen generic dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. The duration of treatment to prevent cancer from returning may be between 5 to 10 years, depending on your medical condition and response to treatment.
Nolvadex or the Tamoxifen generic may contain medical and non medical ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction. Consult with your doctor about any known allergies before taking Nolvadex. Speak with your doctor about any known medical conditions, especially those relating to blood clots (deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, stroke), diabetes, high cholesterol/triglycerides, high blood pressure, smoking, or liver disease.. Tell your doctor about any current medications or supplementation to avoid interactions or unwanted side effects of Tamoxifen.
Some Nolvadex side effects include:
Hot flashes, nausea, leg cramps, muscle aches, hair thinning, headache, and numb/tingling skin may occur. A loss of sexual ability/interest may occur in men.
If any side effects of Tamoxifen become unmanageable speak with your doctor or pharmacist for help in managing the side effects. For any serious side effects speak with your doctor right away for further treatment options.
What is Nolvadex?
Nolvadex is a prescription medication that is manufactured by AstraZeneca; this medication is also available as a generic alternative, manufactured by many generic manufacturers. It comes in two different strengths; 10 and 20 mg. Each tablet contains the fixed amount of tamoxifen. We carry both the brand and the generic alternative in both strengths, available with a valid prescription.
What is Tamoxifen citrate?
Tamoxifen is the active ingredient that makes Nolvadex therapeutically effective. It is taken orally by mouth and is metabolized in the liver, creating multiple metabolites during the process; it belongs to the drug class called selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERMs). Tamoxifen citrate is the citrate salt of tamoxifen; before tamoxifen is compressed into Nolvadex tablets, it must first be made into its existing salt form, which in the case of Nolvadex, is citrate. If it wasn’t first turned into its salt form, it would not dissolve or absorb into the body very well and would therefore cause the medication to be less effective – if effective at all. So while tamoxifen has beneficial effects, it must first be turned into its salt form (tamoxifen citrate) in order for its benefits to work. To prevent confusion, tamoxifen citrate is commonly referred to as just tamoxifen.
What is Tamoxifen used for?
Tamoxifen is used for certain types of breast cancer in both men and (pre- and post-menopausal) woman; specifically (early and advanced) estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer. Additionally, anastrozole may be prescribed to help prevent breast cancer. Using tamoxifen will help slow the growth of ER+ breast cancer and can help prevent the risk of developing it by 50% in those who are at high risk (such as someone who has a family history of breast cancer). Tamoxifen can also reduce the risk of reoccurrence in patients who have previously had breast cancer.
How much does Tamoxifen reduce the risk of recurrence?
According to Dr. Robert Wesolowski, assistant professor at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, those who take tamoxifen for five years will reduce their chance of breast cancer returning by nearly 50%. Reduction in reoccurrence and mortality was greater in those who took the medication for roughly 5 years, as oppose to those who took it for only a short period of time. Speak with your doctor to learn more about your risk of reoccurrence after being treated with tamoxifen.
How does Tamoxifen work?
Selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs), like tamoxifen, work by preventing the effects of estrogen in the breast tissue; estrogen is crucial for the growth of ER+ cancer. Tamoxifen does this by taking over and consuming the estrogen receptors found in the breast cells. When the receptors are occupied with one chemical, which in this case is Tamoxifen, there is no room for other chemicals, like estrogen, to attach to the cell.
What are the side effects of Tamoxifen?
Side effects of tamoxifen (Nolvadex) may include hot flashes, upset stomach or vomiting, weight gain or loss, feeling dizzy, tired, or weak, and back, bone, joint, or muscle pain. However, there may be more side effects not mentioned here. If side effects bother you or do not go away, consult your doctor.

How to take Nolvadex?
Your doctor will go over how and when to take Nolvadex before prescribing it to you. It is important you follow your doctor’s directions very carefully; do not start treatment until you clearly understand how to use Nolvadex as directed by your doctor. Commonly, Nolvadex is taken once or twice a day; dosages should be taken at evenly spaces intervals (such as every 12 hours). Tablets should be swallowed whole, with or without food, unless your doctor instructs otherwise.
How much Nolvadex should I take?
Your doctor will establish the appropriate dosage for you based on a number of factors. Only your doctor can determine what your dose will be. However, to give you a general idea, most adults who take Nolvadex for breast cancer would take an average dose of 20-40mg per day; dosages higher than 20mg should be taken in divided doses; you should not take more than 20mg in a single dose.
How much does Tamoxifen cost?
