Chemical Name of NOLVADEX
Usage of NOLVADEX
NOLVADEX contains the drug tamoxifen. Tamoxifen is a nonsteroidal antiestrogen that is used to treat and prevent oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer in high-risk women. Tamoxifen is used in these therapies either alone or in combination with other drugs. Because anastrozole increases patient survival and compliance, it may no longer be the preferred treatment for certain forms of cancer. Tamoxifen is a pharmaceutical that is used to treat breast cancer. It’s also used to lower the risk of breast cancer in someone who is at high risk. This medicine has the ability to knock the evolution of breast cancer. It helps to prevent hormones from acting on the breast tissue. Tamoxifen is used to treat oestrogen receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer in adults, as an adjuvant in the treatment of early-stage oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer, and to reduce the risk of invasive breast cancer after surgery and radiation in adult women with ductal carcinoma in situ.

Every day, between 20 and 100mg. Different doses depending on use — on cycle 20mg per day to treat gyno or 100mg and gradually tapered down for Post Cycle Therapy – for more information, please see our PCT Protocol Page.
