is a commonly used breast cancer treatment and prevention therapy
used in both men and women who are at high risk of, have a history

cancer (and some other cancers) thrive on estrogen, depriving the
cancer of its fuel will prevent its growth and spread.
Unfortunately Nolvadex doesn't work well for all patients, and may
not be sufficient on its own. It is not unusual for other
medications to be given along with Nolvadex, and alternative
therapies may be tried if results are insufficient.
Tablets come in strengths of 10 to 20 mg each, though daily doses
may be higher. Lower doses are typically given in preventative
cases, such as when there is a family history of breast cancer.
Higher doses tend to be in cases of actively combatting cancer.
There are, however, a lot of other factors which may influence

doses may be split into two daily doses of equal strength.
