Why can't I drink alchohol when taking tamoxifen?


Posted by sarafina

I just started taking tamoxifen 2 days ago and didn't see the warning about alchohol until after I'd had a couple of glasses of wine with dinner.  Hours later I became ill with both diahrrea and nausea.  How does alchohol interact with this drug?

I have been taking tamoxifen for the past two years and I still drink wine in moderation it is fine.
