    Tamoxifen and Anti-Depressants

    Drug Therapy or Medication

    Years before breast cancer I had taken Cymbalta for depression. My oncologist told me I would have to stop cymbalta, because anti-depressants interfere with tamoxifen's effectiveness. The ONLY anti-depressant you can take is effexor. I am NOT a physician or medical expert. I did research on this. Google tamoxifen and antidepressants.
