Basic Information On Fareston
Fareston is used in the treatment of metastatic breast cancer that is estrogen dependent or in cases which are classified as positive hormone receptive. It belongs to a class of drugs called selective estrogen receptor modulators which prevent estrogen from being taken up by its receptors on cancer cells. These receptors are over expressed in hormone positive cancers and when denied of estrogen, cancers cells cannot grow. The Fareston drug is also being researched to combat prostate cancer.
Precautions/Side Effects For Fareston
Side effects of Fareston or Toremifene include symptoms of decreased estrogen circulation. Most women experience hot flashes with excessive sweating. Mood swings are also common. Nausea and dizziness are less common though not a sign of worry as it gradually disappears as the body adapts. Some women may experience vaginal discharge or bleeding, which, in case does not subside in a given time, warrants immediate medical attention. You may also experience slight changes in vision. If this is severe, you may be prohibited from driving.
If you are pregnant, you should let your doctor know as soon as you confirm pregnancy. Fareston is recommended only for post menopausal women. Toremifene can harm the fetus by causing mental as well as growth deformities. It is not known if breast feeding passes the drug to the infant, but women who are feeding their infants should discuss with their care givers before starting on this medication. If you are on any other medication, particularly for heart and blood related disorders like anticoagulants, then adverse interactions with brand or generic Fareston could worsen the side effects of other medications. Diuretics are also known to cause adverse interactions. Discuss your medical history with your doctor before starting on a course of this medication.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
