Tamoxifen citrate (Nolvadex®) is a medication licensed to treat or prevent breast cancer. Various strengths and forms of this medication are available; all forms require a prescription.
If you are prescribed this medication, you may wonder, "Who makes tamoxifen?" The drug was once manufactured by AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals. However, AstraZeneca decided to stop making brand-name Nolvadex in 2006. Fortunately, several companies have chosen to make generic versions of tamoxifen. These generic products are made by several manufacturers, including:
  • Mylan Laboratories
  • Teva Pharmaceuticals
  • Roxane Laboratories.
