Just a quick question is there a list of foods/supplements that should be avoided whilst taking Tamoxifen.
Hi and thanks for posting on our forum,
The most common foods women are advised to stay away from are grapefruit and tangerines as evidence has shown that consuming large amounts of these can cause interactions with medications.
However, if you are taking other medications, herbal supplements or vitamins these should be discussed with the doctor who prescribed the tamoxifen. They will be able to inform you if it is safe to take them.
It is also a good idea to try and maintain a healthy and balanced diet whilst going through breast cancer treatment. We have a very informative page on diet and cancer which you can find here.
I hope this has been helpful.
