Anastrozole And Alcohol

Anastrozole Overview

Anastrozole is a prescription medication used to treat breast cancer in postmenopausal women. It specifically treats hormone receptor-positive tumors that are fueled by estrogen. Anastrozole belongs to a group of drugs called aromatase inhibitors. These medications work by blocking an enzyme called aromatase that helps your body make estrogen.

Anastrozole comes in tablet form and is usually taken once a day, with or without food.

Anastrozole Genetic Information

Breast cancer is cancer that forms in the cells of the breasts. The development of breast cancer is strongly related to the amount of estrogen the breast is exposed to over time. Some women have hormone receptor positive (ER/PR+) breast cancer. Estrogen receptors are proteins found on the surface of cells. Cancer cells grow in response to estrogen binding to these receptors. Anastrozole lowers the amount of estrogen in the blood, limiting the amount of estrogen available to bind to these receptors. This slows or stops the growth of cancer cells.
