1. What is Tamoxifen Sandoz and what is used

Tamoxifen Sandoz is a medicine for the treatment of breast cancer (breast carcinoma). Tamoxifen Sandoz is used for:

  • Adjuvant treatment of the mammary gland tumors (breast carcinoma);
  • Treatment of metastases of mammary gland tumors (breast carcinoma).

2. Before using Tamoxifen Sandoz

Do not use Tamoxifen Sandoz

  • if you are allergic (hypersensitive) at Tamoxifen or any of the other components of Tamoxifen Sandoz;
  • if you are pregnant;
  • if you are under treatment with anastrozole;
  • If you or someone in your family had or has a disease that can increase the risk of blood clots forming.

Take special care when using Tamoxifen Sandoz

  • If you have a significant small number of blood platelets, white blood cells or increased blood calcium. As a result of these circumstances you must be carefully followed;
  • If the values ​​of certain blood fats (triglycerides) are considerably increased during treatment with Tamoxifen Sandoz. A disorder of lipid metabolism (hypertriglyceridemia) may be present
  • If you present bleeding after menopause or irregular bleeding before menopause. The gynecologist should immediately determine the causes of these bleeding. You should discuss with your doctor the need for a gynecological examination to determine the endometrial changes;
  • If your visual acuity changes during treatment with Tamoxifen Sandoz. In this case you must be examined ophthalmologically immediately, because some changes determined in the early stages occur after discontinuation of Tamoxifen Sandoz treatment.

In general you must perform an ophthalmological examination before starting treatment with Tamoxifen Sandoz.

During treatment with Tamoxifen Sandoz you should periodically monitor the number of blood cells, blood calcium and liver function. It is necessary to monitor serum triglycerides.

Menstruation is suppressed in some women in premenopausal period treated with Tamoxifen. There is evidence for the frequent appearance of blood clots (thromboembolic events, including deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism) during treatment with tamoxifen Sandoz.

The concomitant use with the following drugs should be avoided because a decrease in the effect of tamoxifen cannot be excluded: paroxetine, fluoxetine (eg antidepressants), bupropion (antidepressant drug or used as aid to stop smoking), quinidine (used in the treatment of irregular beats of heart) and fifale/dinner (for the treatment of parathyroid gland).

Effects in the case of abuse

Tamoxifen Sandoz can cause false positive results in anti -doping tests. Improper use of Tamoxifen Sandoz drug can affect your health.

Use of other drugs

Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have recently taken any other medicines, including those issued without a prescription.

In particular, you should inform your doctor if you take:

  • paroxetine, fluoxetine (ie antidepressant drugs)
  • bupropiona (antidepressant medicine or used as help stop smoking)
  • quinidine (eg used in the treatment of irregular heartbeat)
  • Cinaccăt (for the treatment of parathyroid gland diseases)

The effect of the following active substances or preparation groups can be influenced during concomitant treatment with Tamoxifen Sandoz.

  • oral anticoagulants (medicines that prevent blood clots from forming) – in the case of their association it is necessary for your doctor to monitor you carefully;
  • cytostatic drugs – due to the increased risk of thrombosis;
  • Anastrozol, used in breast neoplasm;
  • Rifampicin (a drug for the treatment of tuberculosis) – because it causes the decreased plasma concentrations of Tamoxifen Sandoz.

Hormonal preparations, especially those containing estrogen (eg contraceptive pill).

It is possible to reduce the effect. These preparations should not be taken during treatment with Tamoxifen Sandoz.

Concomitant administration of tamoxifen and aminoglutetimide can cause reduction of the concentration of tamoxifen and thus reduce the effect of tamoxifen.

Fertility, pregnancy and breastfeeding

Ask your doctor or pharmacist for recommendations before taking any medicine.

There is not enough experience on the use of tamoxifen during pregnancy. Therefore you should not use Tamoxifen Sandoz during pregnancy. The possibility of the existence of a pregnancy must be excluded before the initiation of treatment. Women at fertile age should use a non -hormonal method of contraception during and up to 2 months after the end of treatment (not the pill, but the ring, condoms) (see also. Use of other medicines).

In high doses, Tamoxifen completely inhibits milk production in humans. This does not start again at the end of treatment.
