Breast Cancer

  • This page lists cancer drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for breast cancer. The list includes generic and brand names. This page also lists common drug combinations used in breast cancer. The individual drugs in the combinations are FDA-approved. However, the drug combinations themselves usually are not approved, although they are widely used.

    The drug names link to NCI's Cancer Drug Information summaries. There may be drugs used in breast cancer that are not listed here.



  • Do not breast-feed. It is not known if NORVASC will pass through your milk.

    Do not start any new prescription or non-prescription medicines or supplements, unless you check with your doctor first.

    Do not use Norvasc if you are allergic to amlodipine

  • NORVASC may cause the following side effects. Most side effects are mild or moderate:


    Swelling of your legs or ankles

    Tiredness, extreme sleepiness

    Stomach pain, nausea


    Flushing (hot or warm feeling in your face)

    Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)

    Heart palpitations (very fast heartbeat)

    It is rare, but when you first start taking NORVASC or increase your dose, you may have a heart attack or your angina may get worse. If that happens, call your doctor right away or go directly to a hospital emergency room.

    Tell your doctor if you are concerned about any side effects you experience. These are not all the possible side effects of NORVASC. For a complete list, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

  • Multiple drug interaction exists with other prescription and non-prescription medication. Inform your doctor about all the medications that you are taking before you start a new drug.
