PHARMAQO TAMOXIFEN 20MG
Chemical Name of TAMOXIFEN
Usage of TAMOXIFEN
Tamoxifen treatment for a long time has been linked to the development of fatty liver, steatohepatitis, cirrhosis, and rare cases of clinically evident acute liver damage. For women at moderate or high risk, a daily dosage of 20 mg for 5 years is advised. A larger dose or a longer time of usage are not recommended due to a lack of evidence.
Dosage of TAMOXIFEN
Take once a day at a dose of 20 mg. Higher dosages have not been shown to provide any extra advantage in terms of delayed recurrence or better patient survival. Although higher dosages have been used in certain individuals with advanced illness, there is no substantial evidence to support the use of 30-40 mg per day therapy. In failed situations, further courses may be administered during future menstrual cycles, with the dose increased to 20 mg twice day, then 40 mg twice daily.
