- Question from KathyK: I have a shot of Faslodex once a month. What if I miss a dose?
- Answers - Patricia A. Ganz, M.D. It's difficult to answer your question because I’m not sure if you're getting this for recurrent or metastatic cancer, or if you're taking it in an adjuvant setting. But this medication really is effective for a 1-month period of time, and if you miss a dose, you're not getting the benefits of the drug.
The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Managing Ongoing Medications featured Patricia Ganz, M.D. and moderator Lillie Shockney, R.N., B.S., M.A.S. answering your questions about staying on track with breast cancer medications you have to take on a regular basis.
