Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Fareston
Answer: Fareston(toremifene citrate)is a non-steroidal antiestrogen(like Tamoxifen). There has been three head to head studies between this drug and Tamoxifen. These were done in North America, Europe and the Nordic areas. Two of the three studies show similar results between the two drugs. One study showed a longer time to progression of disease for Tamoxifen. They appear very similar in terms of side effects and disease effectiveness at this point.
