Soltamox is an oral solution indicated for adult women with early stage estrogen receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer or as adjuvant treatment for breast cancer. Soltamox can also be used to reduce the risk of invasive breast cancer following breast surgery and radiation in adult women with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), and to reduce the incidence of breast cancer in high-risk patients.

The drug is not recommended for women who have already developed breast cancer, because serious life-threatening risks including uterine malignancies, stroke, and pulmonary embolism which outweigh any potential benefits of the drug.

Women with metastatic breast cancer should take between 20 mg and 40 mg of the drug per day, with dosages higher than 20 mg to be split evenly between morning and evening.
If prescribed for the adjuvant treatment of breast cancer, DCIS, or the reduction of breast cancer, dosages should not exceed 20 mg per day.https://www.aasraw.com/products/tamoxifen-citrate-nolvadex-powder

Some of the most common adverse events reported while using Soltamox include hot flashes, mood disturbances, vaginal discharge, vaginal bleeding, nausea, and fluid retention.
