ABSTRACT
The article comments on a study related to the association between use of paroxetine during tamoxifen therapy for breast cancer and increased risk of breast-cancer and all-cause mortality in patients in Ontario, Canada. The findings of the study indicated that women who received paroxetine had more risk of breast-cancer mortality. The biggest issue in this regard is the challenge for practitioners to keep up with the new knowledge about drugs used outside of their specialties.
