Anastrozol

For what conditions or diseases is this medication prescribed?

Anastrozole is used with other treatments, such as surgery or radiation, to treat early-stage breast cancer in women who have experienced menopause (life change, the end of menstrual periods). This medication is also used in women who have experienced menopause, as a first treatment for breast cancer that spread within the breast or to other areas of the body. This medicine is also used to treat breast cancer in women whose breast cancer has worsened after taking tamoxifen (Nolvadex). Anastrozole is in a class of medications called nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitors. It works by decreasing the amount of estrogen that the body produces. This can slow or stop the growth of several types of breast cancer cells that need estrogen to grow.
