I take tamoxifen after a diagnosis of breast cancer. I want to have botox for "crows feet" around my eyes. Is this ok?

Drug-drug interactions with Botox

Botox has nominal systemic absorption and will not have any drug-drug interactions with tamoxifen.

Botox and Tamoxifen

I know of no drug interactions with these and I treat many women that are undergoing or are just finished with chemotherapy. Looking at a less tired face in the mirror really helps make these women feel better and helps keep them moving forward in a positive direction.

This should be totally safe. If you are still apprehensive, discuss with your oncologist for more specific advice.
