Toremifene Prostate Drug

If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, you may receive toremifene citrate (Fareston®). It is used when the disease has metastasized (spread to other areas of the body), and when it is estrogen receptor positive or estrogen receptor unknown. Toremifene is approved for use in postmenopausal women.
 
However, there are times when a healthcare provider may recommend this drug for unapproved ("off-label") uses. For example, men who have prostate cancer may receive toremifene to help prevent bone fractures.
