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.
