Tamodex (Tamoxifen Citrate tablets) – Product Information
Tamodex (Tamoxifen Citrate tablets) are used to treat early breast cancer in women who have already been treated with surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy. This medicine is used to reduce the risk of developing a more serious type of breast cancer in women who have had ductal carcinoma in situ.
Tamodex is a selective estrogen-receptor modulator (SERM) that works both by reducing factors that increase the growth of breast cells and increasing factors that decrease the growth of breast cells. Tamodex is also used to reduce the risk of breast cancer in women who are at high risk for the disease due to their age, personal medical history, and family medical history.
Tamoxifen Citrate, the active ingredient present in Tamodex blocks the actions of oestrogen. Oestrogen is a natural female sex hormone. In certain types of breast cancer, oestrogen can help cancer cells to grow.
