Patient Concerns

Questions Related to Eldtam
This query is for my mother. She was diagnosed with breast cancer stage 1 a couple of years back. It was thus treated with surgery followed by radiology. The doctor has since put her on anastrozole 1mg tablet daily for 5 years. She has been taking altraz 1mg by alkem laboratories since inception but now we have found a same salt medicine named elinal 1mg by emcure pharmaceuticals with same composition. Is elinal an equally effective medicine and can be taken in lieu of altraz? Reason for switching: elinal costs 80% less than altraz.

Hi PATIENT understand your concern. Emcee is a very good brand too. There is technically no difference in the two medicines. However I would suggest you verify with your treating doctor in this case because in case later something goes wrong in future, your doctor will only blame you that you checnged the medicine without consulting him and that is reason the patient has deteriorated. Cancer is known to be notorious. I have myself lost 2 very close family members to breast cancer. Do not take me wrong. I'm only asking you to verify with your doctor so that in future you face no problems in this account.

Frequently asked questions about Tamoxifen

Q. Is Eldtam a chemotherapy drug/ a chemo pill/ kill cancer cells/ cytotoxic/ a steroid/ necessary/ generic drug/ does Eldtam work?
Eldtam is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) for both prevention and treatment of breast cancer in high-risk women. It is not actually a chemotherapy or cytotoxic but a hormone therapy which is given as part of an adjuvant chemotherapy program and works in women who have breast cancer that depends on estrogen for growth
Q. What is Cytotam 20/ Nolvadex?
Cytotam 20/ Nolvadex are brand names of Tamoxifen
Q. Is Nolvadex a SERM /is nolvadex prescription only/ does Nolvadex reduce estrogen?
Nolvadex is a brand name for tamoxifen. Tamoxifen is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM). It is to be used only at the advice and under the supervision of registered medical practitioner. Tamoxifen binds and blocks the estrogen receptors on the surface of breast cells, preventing estrogen from binding to the estrogen-sensitive cancer cells and stops the growth and reproduction of these deadly cells
Q. Is Eldtam (Nolvadex) a steroid/ Is Nolvadex a PCT/is Nolvadex an AI/does nolvadex help with acne/does Nolvadex work for/ reverse/ prevent/ reduce gynocomastia/ can I take nolvadex without steroids?
Nolvadex is not a steroid but actually has quite a few applications for steroid-using athletes, the most common use being the prevention of gynecomastia (enlargement of breasts in men). Nolvadex post androgen-cycle therapy (PCT) is usually implemented when supplementation of anabolic androgenic steroids has altered the levels of natural hormone. Nolvadex is not an aromatase inhibitor (AI). There is no indication to use Eldtam without steroids
Q. Is Eldtam/ Nolvadex safe/cytotoxic/ dangerous/ is Nolvadex hard on the liver/ does Eldtam cause weight gain/ joint pain/stop periods/ hair loss/headaches/insomnia/dry mouth /nausea/ increase libido/ kill libido/ erectile dysfunction/ raise blood pressure?
Eldtam (Nolvadex) is considered safe when used at recommended dosage and duration. It may cause side effects such as liver dysfunction, changes in your periods, hair loss, headaches, weight gain, joint pain, decrease in libido, erectile dysfunction. Side effects such as insomnia, raised blood pressure and dry mouth are not known but may occur with its use
Q. Is Nolvadex or Clomid better?
Nolvadex contains tamoxifen, while Clomid contains clomiphene citrate. Both these drugs are selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs). Tamoxifen is primarily used to prevent or treat breast cancer, but like clomiphene can be used to induce ovulation in women who are infertile. Studies have shown that one drug does not have advantage over the other, and are equally effective for induction of ovulation.
