Brand name: Nolvadex
Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) is an antagonist of the estrogen receptor in breast tissue and is therefore used in the treatment of breast cancer. Some breast cancer cells require estrogen to grow. Estrogen binds to and activates the estrogen receptor in these cells. Tamoxifen is metabolized into compounds that also bind to the estrogen receptor but do not activate it. Furthermore tamoxifen prevents estrogen from binding to its receptor. Hence breast cancer cell growth is blocked.

These may affect the way your medicine works. Check with your health care professional before stopping or starting any of your medicines.

What should I watch for while taking tamoxifen?
Visit your prescriber or health care professional for regular checks on your progress. You may need to have blood drawn to check your blood counts, calcium, and/or cholesterol. Serious side effects to tamoxifen occur rarely. However, you should contact your health care professional if you think you are having any problems with your tamoxifen therapy. Some side effects of tamoxifen may occur soon after starting the drug, but others may first appear at any time during your treatment.
When you start taking tamoxifen to treat breast cancer, bone or tumor pain may increase. This means that tamoxifen is working and the pain should soon decrease. If the pain is severe, call your prescriber or health care professional. During this initial time, if you experience confusion or increased nausea, thirst, urination, or vomiting call your health care professional immediately.
If you are taking tamoxifen to reduce your risk of getting breast cancer, you should know that tamoxifen does not prevent all types of breast cancer. You should have regular gynecological check-ups, including breast exams and mammograms, and follow your prescriber's recommendations. If breast cancer or other problem occurs, there is no guarantee that it will be detected at an early stage. This is why it is important to continue with regular check-ups. Women who are or have taken tamoxifen should inform their prescriber or health care professional of any irregular menstrual cycles, abnormal vaginal bleeding, changes in vaginal discharge, or pelvic pain or pressure.
Women should not become pregnant while taking tamoxifen or for 2 months after tamoxifen therapy has stopped. You should see your prescriber immediately if you think you may have become pregnant while taking tamoxifen. Use of tamoxifen early in pregnancy may harm your unborn child. Women who can have children should use barrier birth control (condoms) or other methods of birth control that do not use hormones. Talk with your health care provider for birth control advice. Because tamoxifen may cause women to ovulate, it may increase the risk of getting pregnant if appropriate birth control is not used.
Women who take tamoxifen are at increased risk for developing blood clots. Some women may develop more than one clot, even if tamoxifen is stopped. If you experience pain or swelling in your calves, sudden chest pain, shortness of breath, or coughing up blood, call your prescriber or health care professional right away. Tamoxifen may increase the chance of having a stroke. If you experience symptoms of a stroke such as weakness, difficulty walking or talking, or numbness, contact your prescriber immediately.
Tamoxifen may cause cataracts or changes to parts of the eye known as the cornea or retina. If you experience any changes in your vision, including difficulty in telling colors apart, tell your prescriber or health care professional immediately.
Men who take tamoxifen may notice decreased sexual desire and impotence.

Frequently asked questions:
What is a generic medication?
Wikipedia gives the following definition: “Generic drug (pl. generic drugs, short: generics) is a drug which is produced and distributed without a brand name. A generic must contain the same active ingredients as the original formulation. In most cases, it is considered bioequivalent to the brand name counterpart with respect to pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties. By extension, therefore, generics are assumed to be identical in dose, strength, route of administration, safety, efficacy, and intended use. Mind that the pills you will receive from us differ in appearance from the brand name ones. The looks of medications as well as brand names are the intellectual property of the brand manufacturer. Thus to avoid any accusation of copyright infringement we have to change the shape and the color of the generic pills as well as use the name of the active ingredient (generic name) instead of the brand name for printing on pills. Please be aware that the generic pills differ in appearance from the brand name medications. Our pills are round shaped and blister packed (10 pills per each blister). The name of the active ingredient as well as the weight are specified on the pill itself.
Why are generic pills cheaper than the brand name ones?
The principal reason for the reduced price of generic medicines is that the creation of the generic drug runs up less cost and therefore a lower price can be offered and still maintain profitability.
Manufacturers of generic drugs are mainly able to avoid the following three costs that brand name pharmaceutical companies incur: (1) costs associated with the research and development of the drug; (2) costs associated obtaining regulatory approval (i.e. proving safety and efficacy of a drug); and (3) marketing costs.
First, Generic manufacturers do not incur the cost of drug discovery and instead reverse-engineer existing brand name drugs to allow them to manufacture bioequivalent versions.
Second, generic manufacturers do not bear the burden of proving the safety and efficacy of the drugs through clinical trials - rather, generic manufacturers must prove the generic drug’s bioequivalancy to the existing drug.
Third, these companies receive the large benefit of the marketing and advertising that goes into pushing the innovator drug. The brand name drug has to prove itself in the eyes of the consumer, generic ones do not. The drugs that generic manufacturers are selling have been on the market for usually a decade or more and do not need additional advertising. For the same reason, generic manufacturers also do not give away sample doses to promote their products. The significant research, development and marketing costs incurred by the large pharmaceutical companies in introducing a new drug to the market is often cited as the reason for the high cost of new agents - they wish to recover these costs before the patent expires. Generic manufacturers do not incur these costs, with bioequivalence testing and manufacturing costing relatively little, and are able to charge significantly less than the brand.
