Default Avoid Prozac, Paxil and Wellbutrin while on breast cancer treatment

A study found that 3 antidepressants commonly used in the treatment of anxiety and depression normally accompanying breast cancer diagnosis negate the protective effect of tamoxifen, which is a drug used widely to fight breast cancer.

Tamoxifen is a standard treatment for women suffering a kind of breast cancer that's fueled by estrogen. Tamoxifen reduces the chances that the cancer will recur and thus improves chances of survival.

These antidepressants are: fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), and bupropion (Wellbutrin). Thus these drugs should be avoided by females taking tamoxifen because they interfere with the treatment's anti-cancer effects.

Oh, thanks for this heads up. An aunt of mine is undergoing breast cancer treatment and could be on tamoxifen. I hope she has already been warned by her doctors regarding this.

But what if you are fighting breast cancer and taking tamoxifen, then you also had to deal with anxiety and depression? Are the other antidepressants ok, or are there drugs that are more recommended?

According to the Harvard Mental Health Letter, which reported this, better options for those who are taking tamoxifen include desvenlafaxine (Pristiq), venlafaxine (Effexor), and mirtazapine (Remeron).

Even though many may think Breast Cancer Awareness is not all that important, it is.* Awareness raises money, helps others to take the time to get examined, and will one day be the reasons a cure is found.

The other thing that awareness does is it creates a bit of a domino effect.* If you wear a pink ribbon and hand out five more pink ribbons to others to wear, then they do the same.It will eventually become a large amount of people with pink ribbons.
