Toremifene Fareston

Toremifene Fareston

This chemotherapy and cancer drugs article is about Toremifene (Fareston) which is similar to Tamoxjfen in that it is an anti-oestrogen, which blocks the oestrogen receptor and helps slow the growth and reproduction of breast cancer cells. Although licensed here in the UK it is rarely ever used as there is so much data on Tamoxifen.  It is taken in tablet form.

Side effects can include: hot flushes, nausea and indigestion, vaginal bleeding and discharge, vision problems, a slight possibility of tumour flare (when initially the drug makes the symptoms worse).  There is also a rare possibility of the drug causing endometrial cancer if taken for long periods in high doses.
