Tamoxifen Action Mechanism
Tamoxifen belongs to Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM) class of drugs and acts through competitively binding to estrogen receptors present on tumors and other tissue targets. As a result, Tamoxifen produces a nuclear complex that decreases viral DNA synthesis and thereby inhibits the effects of estrogen.
Consult your medical professional before taking Tamoxifen, as its dosage depends upon the severity of your medical condition, other medications you might be taking and clinical history, if present. The usual recommended dosage of Tamoxifen for breast cancer treatment is 20 mg to 40 mg taken daily. While, Tamoxifen dosage for treating ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) or preventing breast cancer is 20 mg per day for five years.
Do not take Tamoxifen if you
