Anastrozole 1Mg Tablet

Anastrozole 1Mg Tablet

What is anastrozole 1MG?

Anastrozole is a prescription drug. It’s available as an oral tablet.

Anastrozole oral tablet is available as the brand-name drug Arimidex and as a generic drug. Generic drugs usually cost less. In some cases, they may not be available in the same strengths or dosage forms as the brand-name version.

This drug may be used with other medications to treat breast cancer.

Anastrozole shouldn’t be used in women who haven’t gone through menopause. If you become pregnant while taking anastrozole, stop taking anastrozole right away.

How does anastrozole 1mg work?

Some breast cancers are stimulated to grow by the hormone oestrogen. In women who have been through the menopause, oestrogen is no longer produced by the ovaries. But some oestrogen is still made in body fat using an enzyme (a type of protein) called aromatase. Aromatase inhibitors stop this enzyme from working so there’s less oestrogen in the body.

How long will I have to take anastrozole 1mg?

In primary breast cancer, if you take anastrozole as your only hormone therapy you will usually take it for five years. Some people may be recommended to take anastrozole for five years after completing five years of tamoxifen (ten years of hormone therapy in total).

It can also be taken for two to three years following two to three years of tamoxifen (five years of hormone therapy in total).
