Nolvadex and Breast Cancer
Nolvadex, otherwise known as the ‘treatment for prevention of prostate cancer’ is an important drug for men to take on a regular basis. Nolvadex belongs to the class of drugs called ‘anti-androgens’. These are simply male hormones which are normally produced when a man’s body Nolvadex is going through puberty and can remain throughout life. These hormones help to regulate the functioning of organs such as the prostate and testicles and also have an important role in keeping the bones strong and flexible.
Nolvadex can only be used if you are suffering from one of the causes of an enlarged prostate and it must therefore be treated before any of the conditions develops into something more serious. One of these causes is the growth of prostate cells and this can be caused by the use of certain hormone replacement therapies which can be introduced into the body after puberty. Once the levels of hormones have fallen to a level beyond the normal range, these cells begin to grow and this can cause serious medical complications. Nolvadex can be useful for the early prevention of any of these complications, so the drug is often prescribed as a preventive treatment for those whose bodies have not had time to develop the tissues around the prostate. The most common side effect from taking Nolvadex however, is the occurrence of thrombotic events.
In this study, patients who were on Nolvadex decided to undergo an early breast cancer follow-up and it was found that there was an improved survival rate. There was a significant reduction in the mortality from all types of cancers, and particularly from the most deadly type of cancer, prostate cancer. The researchers attributed this improvement to the combination of to nolvadex (tamoxifen citrate), which acts as an anti-oxidant; the combination with Vitamin C, and the timing of administration. The study looked at patients who had been treated with tamoxifen, and those who had already undergone radiation therapy for breast cancer, and it also included women who had not responded to the anti-oxidant therapy.
If you are a woman and you are interested in trying to treat breast cancer by using drugs, such as tamoxifen, you should talk with your doctor about the possible benefits to you of Nolvadex. Nolvadex may lower the estrogen levels, which may lower the risk of cancer. This is especially important because women who have high estrogen levels are more likely to have advanced stages of cancer. It may also lower the progesterone, which may lower the risk of cancer in postmenopausal women.
Nolvadex can be taken in conjunction with medications used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia, and/or urinary incontinence. Some studies have suggested that taking tamoxifen along with Nolvadex can help to improve the effects of estrogen therapy. Some studies have also indicated that using anti-estrogens with Nolvadex may help to prevent the development of prostate cancer in men.
Like all medicines, there are some risks of side effects associated with Nolvadex, including allergic reactions to any ingredients of which Nolvadex is made, including the brand name Nolvadex. You should talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you think that you are allergic to any of the ingredients of Nolvadex. Nolvadex was not evaluated by the FDA. It is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
