Re: Tamoxifen Mechanism

Interesting. Don't forget Tamoxifen is not active but is a prodrug. The Enzyme CYP2D6 metabolizes Tamoxifen to the active drug, Nor Tamoxifen. CYP2D6 can be inhibited with drugs like Prozac, Paxil and Wellbutrin. (in generic terms-Fluoxetine, Paroxetine and Bupropion. These drugs can decrease the effect of Tamoxifen.
