Nolvadex belongs to a large group of prescription medications called hormonal replacement drugs. They work by interfering with the effects of estrogen and progesterone on the body, thereby reducing the number of eggs produced and thus the possibility of ovarian cancer. Nolvadex was first approved by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1982. It has been shown to be effective in women who are undergoing chemotherapy.
Nolvadex can be safely used by most women who are not being treated with hormone therapy, or by those women who are not currently being treated with this type of medicine. The brand name for this medication is ” Nexium”. The pharmaceutical company that produces nolvadex is Teva Pharmaceuticals. The generic name for this drug is “ngst”.
One of the many medications used to treat this condition is nolvadex. Nolvadex contains compounds known as Nolvadex estrogens, particularly estrogen and progestagens. These are both female hormones that stimulate the ovary to produce eggs. In some women, one or more of these hormones are unbalanced. These women commonly experience irregular menstruation cycles, infertility, and polycystic ovaries.
Nolvadex can be very useful for women who have a high level of estrogen but have very low levels of progesterone. Nolvadex and other medications may help to prevent the development of blood clots, which can break off the endometrial lining and cause uterine cancer. Blood clots can block the exit route for blood to the uterus, and they can also injure the delicate tissue surrounding the uterus. In addition to increased risk of uterine cancer, blood clots can cause other serious side effects, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, which can weaken the pelvic floor muscle, and leiomyelitis, a fungal infection that occurs in the soft tissues around the bladder and uterus. Women with these conditions should avoid taking Nolvadex.
Nolvadex should not be taken by women who smoke, have blood clotting disorders, or have a history of uterine cancer. Nolvadex should also be avoided by women who are currently pregnant or planning to get pregnant, because it can increase the risk of premature birth and miscarriage. Nolvadex does not prevent or treat benign prostatic hyperplasia or prostate cancer, and it may not reduce the size of existing prostate tumors. If you experience any of the serious problems associated with taking Nolvadex, talk to your doctor immediately.
Nolvadex should be safe to take when you are pregnant, but if you become pregnant and use this medication, you and your baby need to talk to your doctor about its safety. Nolvadex may pass into your breast milk, so breast feeding mothers and their babies need to be monitored regularly. Nolvadex should not be taken by smokers or people who take medications that can affect the liver or heart. Nolvadex can cause withdrawal signs in some people, so if you experience these symptoms, stop taking the medication immediately and talk to your doctor about its possible effects on your health.
