What is Tamoxifen Citrate (generic Nolvadex) and what are its uses?

Nolvadex (Tamoxifen citrate) blocks the effects of estrogen hormone in the body. Nolvadex is most commonly used to treat breast cancer in women or men.

Nolvadex may reduce the chance of breast cancer coming back in women previously treated with surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy.

Nolvadex may also help prevent breast cancer in certain women with a high risk of developing breast cancer. Occasionally Nolvadex is used for other conditions.

How does Tamoxifen Citrate (generic Nolvadex) treat?

Nolvadex tablets contain the active ingredient tamoxifen citrate, which is a type of medicine known as an 'anti-oestrogen'. Nolvadex is mainly used to treat women with breast cancers that respond to the female sex hormone, oestrogen.

Most breast cancers are sensitive to oestrogen, and their growth is increased in the presence of this hormone. Oestrogen binds to oestrogen receptors on the breast cancer cells and causes changes within the cells that result in faster growth of the breast cancer.

Nolvadex works by blocking these oestrogen receptors, thereby blocking the effect of oestrogen on the cancer. This reduces the size of oestrogen-sensitive tumors.

Nolvadex is also used in the treatment of female infertility that is caused by problems with ovulation. Again, Nolvadex acts by blocking oestrogen receptors, this time in a part of the brain called the hypothalamus. The effect of this is an increase in the levels of the hormones that control the development and release of an egg. These hormones are released from the pituitary gland and are known as follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinising hormone (LH). FSH stimulates the ovaries and LH causes the release of an egg from the ovaries (ovulation).

What should you watch for while taking Tamoxifen Citrate (generic Nolvadex)?

Inform your health care professional for regular checks on your progress. You may need to have blood drawn to check your blood counts, calcium, and/or cholesterol. Serious side effects to Nolvadex occur rarely. However, you should contact your health care professional if you think you are having any problems with your Nolvadex therapy. Some side effects of Nolvadex may occur soon after starting the drug, but others may first appear at any time during your treatment.

When you start taking Nolvadex to treat breast cancer, bone or tumor pain may increase. This means that Nolvadex is working and the pain should soon decrease. If the pain is severe, call your prescriber or health care professional. During this initial time, if you experience confusion or increased nausea, thirst, urination, or vomiting call your health care professional immediately.

If you are taking Nolvadex to reduce your risk of getting breast cancer, you should know that Nolvadex does not prevent all types of breast cancer. You should have regular gynecological check-ups, including breast exams and mammograms, and follow your prescriber's recommendations. If breast cancer or other problem occurs, there is no guarantee that it will be detected at an early stage. This is why it is important to continue with regular check-ups. Women who are or have taken Nolvadex should inform their prescriber or health care professional of any irregular menstrual cycles, abnormal vaginal bleeding, changes in vaginal discharge, or pelvic pain or pressure.

Women should not become pregnant while taking Nolvadex or for 2 months after Nolvadex therapy has stopped. You should see your prescriber immediately if you think you may have become pregnant while taking Nolvadex. Use of Nolvadex early in pregnancy may harm your unborn child. Women who can have children should use barrier birth control (condoms) or other methods of birth control that do not use hormones. Talk with your health care provider for birth control advice. Because Nolvadex may cause women ovulate, it may increase the risk of getting pregnant if appropriate birth control is not used.

Women who take Nolvadex are at increased risk for developing blood clots. Some women may develop more than one clot, even if Nolvadex is stopped. If you experience pain or swelling in your calves, sudden chest pain, shortness of breath, or coughing up blood, call your prescriber or health care professional right away. Nolvadex may increase the chance of having a stroke. If you experience symptoms of a stroke such as weakness, difficulty walking or talking, or numbness, contact your prescriber immediately.

Nolvadex may cause cataracts or changes to parts of the eye known as the cornea or retina. If you experience any changes in your vision, including difficulty in telling colors apart, tell your prescriber or health care professional immediately.
