I Have Been On Wellbutrin XL 450 Mg For Many Years And Have Been On Tamoxifen For 2 Yrs. Is This Safe To Take Together?

I Have Been On Wellbutrin XL 450 Mg For Many Years And Have Been On Tamoxifen For 2 Yrs. Is This Safe To Take Together?

My oncologist gave me no information on the subject. I was just told it was fine. However. I’ve done much research on this subject with conflicting answers. I need to be on the wellbutrin. This is something that I cannot change. It would be dangerous. But is the tamoxifen even working because of the interaction between the two drugs? Does anyone have any advice?

When Should You Have Both Breast Removed

When Should You Have Both Breast Removed

When should you have both breasts removed if they are only telling you one needs to be removed. Is it a personal choice or should the doctor recommend both if you are worried the second one would also get cancer.

DIEP Flap Reconstruction

DIEP Flap Reconstruction

I need input on women who had DIEP flap reconstruction. I had a bilateral mastectomy in Aug 2018, with expanders. I had cancer in the left breast. I did not need chemo nor radiation, although they went back into the left breast area and took out 12 lymph nodes, with no cancer cells evident. 1st set of silicone implants were put in 12/2018. By middle of 2020, I had capsular contracture in right implant. When removed, it was milky white (no evident leakage), so the manufacturer told the… read more
