... worried about this medication.It says not to use if you have had breast cancer.Why do Doctors prescribe this if they know you have had breast cancer
Because if you have a large medical file and a new doctor, the odds are on that they won't read your history prior to a consult, but skim through it when you are in the office paying for a service. Male doctors can be especially ignorant at times.
You might be better off taking a small dose of an old tri-cyclic anti depressant called Endep which is virtually side effect free with the exception of urinary continence (as opposed to incontoninence). Many older women with weakened pelvic floor muscles take it for just that reason. To prevent urine leakage and bladder control. It can give them a new feeling of confidence, not having to worry so much. Ask your doctor what she/he thinks.
