The Drug Nolvadex and It’s Uses
When you think of the drug Nolvadex, what do you think of? Is it all about the estrogen blocker for women, or something else? Well, in this article we will explore the options. Nolvadex will be one of the medications in Australia that you will be surprised to know about.
For Women in General
What this drug does for women is treat cancer of the breast that has already metastasized in the body. Metastasized means that the cancer will have been spread through other parts of the body. So this treatment will be for (basically female) patients that have higher risks and to assist with surgery afterwards and radiation therapy. It will help with the cancer not returning to the other breast or just in general, it is for high risk patients that have a higher chance for it coming back. This gives patients that have been worried about cancer again and again more hope it will stay away for good.
When you you not take this drug?
If you are currently nursing a baby then you won’t be able to take this drug. And if you are taking various other drugs and herbs, it will have very dangerous side effects. These drugs and so forth which are included are Carbamazepine, Rifabutin, Rifampin, Warfarin, Letrozole, Anastrozole, St. John’s wort, Phenobarbital, and Phenytoin. If you are known to get blood clots then it would be detrimental to avoid this drug Nolvadex as well. If you are allergic to Tomoxafen and of course the drug Nolvadez itself in any form then it would not be possible to take the drug. This goes for men as well, aside from breast feeding which men don’t need to worry about for most obvious reasons.
What else to watch out for?
There might be some instances where the drug could lower blood cell counts, for example. That would not be good. Have your doctor monitor you for this. Having regular bloodwork done is a good idea. Lab testing could be compromised if you are taking this medication so it is important that you mention it to the lab technicians and health care practicioners. The drug can also cause chest pain pressure, fever, sore throat, chills, bruising that is odd, and breathing issues. You definetly don’t want to continue to take the drug if you experience any of those symptoms. Possible issues with menstrual bleeding being stopped and cancer otherwise could turn up so be aware of those things as well.
What About Men and It’s Effectiveness
Men can get breast cancer too and that means they are allowed to take it. That is if they also are cleared with the above issues as women acould be as stated above. Men usually take this for coming down from steroids (this is not the same with women body builders as it has to do with testosterone). It can be taken for increased muscle mass.
