What To Think About
Because tamoxifen can cause changes in the lining of the uterus, women who use it should have yearly pelvic exams and should be evaluated further if they experience any abnormal uterine bleeding.
Tamoxifen may not work as well if a woman is also taking some types of medicine to treat hot flashes or depression. If you take tamoxifen, talk with your doctor about any other medicines you are taking.
Tamoxifen should not be used if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Discuss birth control with your doctor if you are taking tamoxifen and could become pregnant.
