Re: tamoxifen brand Teva

I picked up my prescription yesterday, opened the bag expecting to see the dreaded Relon brand only to find a lovely box of Teva!

 

Not sure if they just found a box lurking in the back of a cupboard or if this is a sign that it's coming back into supply... but I'm a very happy girl today!

Re: tamoxifen brand Teva

Hi

I too have had problems with brands other than Teva. My pharmacist has been trying for a few months to source some for me without success. I contacted Teva's customer care line this morning and although they thought supply would be resumed next week it has now been put back to the beginning of October.

I have had enough Teva till now but will run out in a few days and am going on holiday soon - so will have to go on another brand. I feel really anxious about this - I didn't sleep for a month on Relonchem.

Anyway just thought I'd share the good news !!

Re: tamoxifen brand Teva

Morning Katzygirl.

 

It would appear from the forum that quite a few people who struggle with the side effects from other brands find TEVA a bit kinder.  I have also seen this noted with Letrozole.  I personally really struggled to walk if i got up in the night, feet and hands really painful, had flu like symptoms all the time and hot flushes with Wockhardt.

 

The pharmacist i use was able to find TEVA for me which reduced the side effects and this summer when there has been a shortage he kindly put TEVA aside for a number of ladies who prefer this brand.

 

I think the supply problem has been a number of brands but appears to have been sorted now.

 

Lots of people use other brands Relon and Wockhardt with no problems whatsoever so like all the treament i think it really is personal and we just have to find what works best for us.

 

Take Care  Gilly x

Re: tamoxifen brand Teva

Can you tell me about Teva brand, is this the best one for no side effects? I have been on 20mg daily for 13 months and have always had Wokhard with little or just mild side effects, then 2 months ago my pharmacist tried to give me a different brand apparently Wokhard have had distribution problems too! They went to so much trouble to get me the same brand and at the moment I am taking 2 10mg tabs as that's all they can get. Xx

Re: tamoxifen brand Teva

I have had difficulty getting Teva. Emailed them and was informed supply problem should be sorted by July. Pharmacist couldn't get it .. Prescription late July. Am using Relon. Not suiting me the same but much better than WD. I am wondering if the Teva problem is nationwide. I have trotted my prescription around umpteen chemists in Fife but to no avail!

Re: Tamoxifen brand Teva

Hi

 

I've had trouble getting hold of Teva brand Tamoxifen as well. I contacted Teva and they said that they will start distributing their brand of Tamoxifen again in August. They didn't explain why they've temporarily stopped doing it. I have told my pharmacist and have asked them to try and get it in again next month.

 

Meanwhile, I've found that Generics brand aren't too bad, but am looking forward to using Teva again.

Re: tamoxifen brand Teva

Hi,

     I had Teva for the last 2 years, the last prescription I picked up they had given me wokhart I was slightly alarmed to say the least as was going on holiday and didnt want to get unexpected strange side effects, low and behold its been better for me, Nausea has drastically subsided, hot flushes reduced ? now Im hoping this will last as side effects had been pretty bad of late so its nice to have a break from them, My onc did once say that it can help to change brand occasionally as it can lessen side effects so we will wait and see, Teva does seem a problem to get hold of now though x

Re: tamoxifen brand Teva

Although I am taking Anastrozole and not Tam I found the Teva brand suited me best and my pharmacist always keeps it in stock for me now.

Re: tamoxifen brand Teva

I have found a local chemist that gets the teva brand for me too, I tried about 12 others chemists before I found teva though, they all seem to stock wockhard and from what I have read about that I avoid it! hope you managed to get them
