Teva Tamoxifen 

Indication

Tamoxifen belongs to the group of cancer-fighting medications known as antineoplastics, and specifically to the type of antineoplastics known as antiestrogens. It is used in combination with other medications to treat early Breast Cancer.

Tamoxifen fights certain types of breast cancer, called hormone responsive or estrogen receptor positive breast cancer, by blocking the effects of the hormone estrogen in the body. This prevents the growth of the types of breast cancer cells that require estrogen for growth and survival. It is also used to treat breast cancer that is advanced or has spread to other parts of the body.

Teva Tamoxifen may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Teva Tamoxifen may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Teva Tamoxifen may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Teva Tamoxifen for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles.
