    • Tamoxifen -- Soltamox
    • Toremifene -- Fareston
    • Fulvestrant -- Faslodex
  16. Tamoxifen -- Soltamox
    • non-steroid anti-estrogen that competes with estradiol for estrogen receptors
    • most widely used RX for breast cancer
    • metab -- CYP2D6 (SSRIs)
  17. Toremifene -- Fareston
