    This medication can block the growth of breast cancer. It works by
    interfering with the effects of estrogen in the breast tissue.Read the
    Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start using
    tamoxifen and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions,
    consult your doctor or pharmacist.



    Take this medication by mouth with or without food, usually once or
    twice daily for 5 years, or as directed by your doctor. Daily dosages
    greater than 20 milligrams are usually divided in half and taken twice a
    day, in the morning and evening, or as directed by your doctor. If you
    are using the liquid, measure the dose carefully using a special
    measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not
    get the correct dose.



    Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.
    The duration of treatment to prevent cancer from returning may be
    between 5 to 10 years, depending on your medical condition and response
    to treatment.



    Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time(s) each day.



    If you have breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body,
    you may experience increased bone/cancer pain and/or disease flare-up
    as you start taking tamoxifen. In some cases, this may be a sign of a
    good response to the medication. Symptoms include increased bone pain,
    increased tumor size, or even new tumors. These symptoms usually
    disappear quickly. In any case, report these symptoms right away to your
    doctor.



    Since this drug can be absorbed through the skin and lungs, women who
    are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not handle this
    medication or breathe the dust from the tablets. (See also Precautions
    section.)



    Inform your doctor right away if your condition worsens (e.g., you get new breast lumps).
