Fareston Chemotherapy Information

If you have a certain kind of breast cancer, your healthcare provider may recommend Fareston® (toremifene citrate). Although this chemotherapy drug can be an effective treatment, it's important to review the safety information to help minimize potentially dangerous complications. You may not be able to take Fareston if you are taking certain products, have a history of a blood clot or a stroke, or are pregnant or nursing.
 
Fareston comes in the form of tablets that are taken by mouth once daily. Side effects are possible and include nausea, sweating, and hot flushes.
 
This drug is specifically approved to treat metastatic breast cancer (cancer that has spread to other areas) in postmenopausal women who have estrogen receptor-positive or estrogen receptor-unknown tumors. As a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM), Fareston works by binding to the cancer cells and preventing them from growing.
