I don't think so, however Tamoxifen is part of a group of medications called selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs). SERMs have both estrogenic (estrogen-like) effects and anti-estrogenic effects. Tamoxifen has anti-estrogenic effects on the breasts, while it has estrogen-like effects on bones, helping to strengthen them.

For more details please do seek advice of a doc/pharmacist, I maybe wrong.

Take care, best wishes!
