Drug family: Antiestrogen
IN WHICH CASE THE DRUG NOLVADEX IS PRESCRIBED?
This drug has an antihormonal action, mainly antiestrogenic: it blocks the stimulating action of estrogens on the breasts by binding, when they exist, with the estrogen receptors.

It also has, paradoxically, stimulating effects on the uterus, the bones (protection against osteoporosis linked to menopause) and the synthesis of fats.

It is used in women in the treatment of certain breast cancers.

You can consult the following article(s):

CONTRAINDICATIONS OF THE DRUG NOLVADEX
This medicine should not be used in the following cases:
in association with products containing St. John's wort,

pregnancy,

breast-feeding.

CAUTION
This medication sometimes reproduces certain effects of menopause. It can therefore cause hot flashes and/or headaches. But it does not have a contraceptive effect.

Given the possible effects of this drug on the uterus, regular gynecological monitoring, at least once a year, is necessary; report any abnormal genital bleeding to your doctor without delay.

A particular surveillance is recommended in case of important excess of triglycerides in the blood, history of phlebitis or pulmonary embolism.

Caution: sportsman : this medicine contains a substance forbidden during competitions and trainings by the World Anti-doping Agency. Remember to keep your doctor informed of your sports activities (discipline, level).

Caution: driverDriver: this drug may be responsible for visual disorders.

INTERACTIONS OF NOLVADEX WITH OTHER SUBSTANCES
This drug may interact with drugs containing bupropion, duloxetine, fluoxetine, paroxetine, quinidine or terbinafine: risk of decreasing the effectiveness of tamoxifen. It is recommended to avoid their use during treatment.

Inform your doctor if you are also taking oral anticoagulants.

FERTILITY, PREGNANCY AND BREASTFEEDING
PREGNANCY:
Due to a malformative effect observed in animals, this drug is contraindicated in pregnant women. In non-menopausal women, effective contraception is necessary during the entire treatment period and up to 9 months after its discontinuation, but oral contraceptives (pill) containing estrogens cannot be used.

BREASTFEEDING :
Breast-feeding is contraindicated (and usually not possible) during treatment.

USUAL DOSAGE :

ADVICE
This medication is not suitable for the treatment of all breast cancers. It will be more effective if your tumor has estrogen receptors. The search for these receptors is done by analyzing a sample of the tumor.

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF NOLVADEX
Hot flashes, genital itching, white discharge.

Abnormal development of the endometrium, which may result in intermittent bleeding (see Warning).
