#5 Cancer Drugs Can Cause Long Term Side Effects
So not only is it bad enough developing cancer in the first place – but you may go on to develop some unwanted side effects from the treatment that is supposedly helping you to get better.
The drug ‘tamoxifen’ commonly given to women with breast cancer, has a high rate of causing mental fogginess in those that take it. Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center have also proven what what once reported to be anecdotal only.
The study team found that the breast cancer drug tamoxifen is actually toxic to cells of the brain and central nervous system which is what produces this mental fogginess similar to “chemo brain.”
Any one for a side order of mental fogginess with their cancer treatment? Didn’t think so. Come on doctors – cancer patients deserve better that that.
