Nolvadex is a drug used for breast cancer treatment, especially when the tumor has already metastasized into other body segments. Most commongly it is combined with other similar medications, as well as with recuperative and supportive drugs. Nolvadex is often prescribed as a preventative measure to women belonging to high-risk groups and to those patients who have already survived DCIS surgery and radiation therapy. It is known to greatly decrease the risk of ntw lumps growth.
Being an antiestrogen, Nolvadex primarily freezes the development of estrogen-activated tumors. It works on the principles of blocking the effects estrogen has on certain tumors and stabilizing the endocrine profile slightly according to the condition the patient is going through.
The Nolvadex pack contains an extra patient information sheet - a Medication Guide. You have to read it thoughtfully before you start using the medicine. We also recommend to review the Medication Guide whenever you're getting a refill.
As for side effects, Nolvadex has been known to cause dizziness spells which get worse if the patient is taking alcohol or other stimulants. It is advisable to adjust your diet to the medication. When used for long periods, Nolvadex also tends to bring about problems with immune resistance and blood coagulability, so make sure your treatment regimen is closely monitored by your oncologist.
