Metastatic breast cancer is cancer that has sped to other parts of the body. This medication is available to people who have had surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy to help treat their breast cancer.
Nolvadex is also available to women who may be at high risk for developing breast cancer. Talk to your doctor if you are interested in taking Nolvadex as a preventative medication.
Nolvadex is a tablet that is prescribed orally. Pills are not to be crushed or tampered with, but taken in their full pill form. Nolvadex comes in 10mg or 20 mg tablets. Most people are prescribed doses 20-40mg per day.
Common side effects of Nolvadex are similar to other side effects of other medications, such as hot flashes, nausea, fatigue, and headaches. Other side effects can include tumor or bone pain, hair thinning, mood swings and depression. If a patient has liver problems, it is recommended that the patient refrains from consuming alcohol while taking Nolvadex. Tell your doctor if you have had high blood pressure or cholesterol before taking Nolvadex.
Other complications related to Nolvadex include cataracts or having to undergo cataracts surgery. It may also cause a pause in a womanâs monthly period. If you are sexually active, refrain from using birth control that contains hormones. Options include condoms. Make sure to practice this form of safe sex throughout your time of taking Nolvadex, and two months after you are finished taking Nolvadex.
Symptoms of an overdose of Nolvadex include uncontrolled shaking of the body, feelings of dizziness and a feeling of not having your balance.
Nolvadex works by connecting with the hormone receptor that is located in the cancer cell. It works by preventing estrogen from attaching to the receptor. When this occurs the tumor is unable to grow in size, so the cancer cells are unable to grow in size. This process slows the progression of the cancer cells and can even cause a tumor to stop growing.
If you accidently miss a dose of Nolvadex, take the missed medication as soon as you are aware that a missed medication occurred. If you realize there is a missed dose when it is close to the time of your regular dose, do not worry about taking the missed medication, and continue taking the medication as you would regularly.
