Generic Nolvadex (Tamoxifen)
Generic Nolvadex is an antitumor antiestrogenic drug, which slows the progression of the tumor process, stimulated by estrogens. Also it is used for treating breast cancer and decreasing the chance of its comeback. The manufacturer is Chandra Phagat / Unimed Technologies.
The active ingredient is Tamoxifen 10mg/20mg, which is a nonsteroidal anti-androgenic medication with weak estrogenic feature. Its action is based on its ability to block estrogen receptors. Generic Nolvadex is available in 10 pills in blister.
The intake of the drug is prescribed individually. Tablets should be taken without chewing, with a small amount of liquid, with/without food. After intake, Tamaxifen is well absorbed and the effect occurs in 4-7 hours. Before the treatment, women should undergo thorough gynecological (with the exception of pregnancy) and therapeutic examination. Tamoxifen causes an ovulation, which increases the risk of pregnancy, so women of childbearing age should use reliable methods of contraception.
